I was asked by Jesse to paint on his grandfathers 1958-1959 varsity jacket. The jacket had gotten some water damage and staining over the years and Jesse wanted me to put some art on it to breath new life into it. I thought that was a cool idea and I was super down.
Recently Converse hit me up to hand paint 30 pairs of Chucks for their Pop Up Shop at Nordstrom’s in Bellevue square! They shipped me a bunch of their shoes and I started Painting! After they saw my work they asked me to paint 30 more pairs for them for the downtown Seattle Nordstom store as well. This is a photo journal of my process of creating the shoes.
To purchase a pair of shoes visit the Seattle Nordstrom or Bellevue Nordstrom.
Or call to order over the phone
Seattle- (206) 303-6000
Bellevue - (425) 455-5800
These are just some of the shoes they sent me.
I started by completely painting the shoes a solid color.
Then I added some drips of different colors.
All in all I submitted about 10 sketches. This is the one they chose for the Bellevue Nordstrom.
This is the one they chose for the Downtown Seattle Nordstrom.
Then I was on to adding the characters to the shoes.
Then I sprayed them down with a glossy fixant to help them shine, and to hopefully protect the paint a bit.
Then It was time to drop them off at Nordstrom.
It was so cool to be approached by such awesome, major companies. The shoes have been selling fast. This project was a ton of work and took days to complete, but It was super fun and rewarding as well.
Red Williamson of New Spin Photo from Olympia WA followed me around with his cameras for the week leading up to my big solo art show. He captured me creating the art for my show, hanging the show in the gallery, and the opening night celebration. He put together this short film documenting the show.
Enjoy and share!
Then I take a photograph of that drawing. Then I bring it into adobe illustrator and fill it in with color. Then I bring it into photoshop and add textures to make it look like it has been painted and it ends up looking like this…
Music, art, good times, fuck yea!

“It’s an interesting outlook. He’s taking art that is designed to blend into the décor, or lull you into a docile state in the lobby of some bank or office building, and making them burst with blobs of color. He’s taking something someone just barely valued enough to not throw away and giving it life. Reincarnation isn’t just a name for his art show; it’s a theme extending from his personal life, through his hand, into his painting, salvaging junk by making it art. Ten Hundred is taking things that are dead, and giving them new life.”
