If you know me from years ago, you know I used to draw sneakers. Day in. Day out. Not a moment I wouldn’t do it. I studied graphic design and as much as I liked most assignments at school, I just wanted to step away from the rules of the book.
Long story short. I dropped out of school in 2014. My dad had a car accident back in 2013 and I missed a lot of hours at school so instead redoing a year, I just left. I ended up working fulltime at night at a sushi restaurant and during the day I would just illustrate sneakers.
I used a rose in my illustrations a lot during that time. I see flowers as growth of life – this can be anything in life. I’m a sneaker head. I called my rose “Dedication flower”. So my series of sneakers with flowers is called: “Sneaker Dedication”.
A few days ago I received an email of a girl. She messaged about my canvases (yep my website is totally not clear – I need to fix that). She wanted to order a 1 of 1 Sneaker Dedication for her friend. She said her friend always wanted to have a piece of my work. So when I read that, I can’t wait to start.
Friday is my day off work, it’s the day I always put my time in CAREAUX. I had to stay home all day to wait for interior to come in so I had enough time to work on this piece.
What do you think?
If you’re curious for my work. I have some stuff available on careaux.bigcartel.com
Or just email me. I’m always open to discuss work!
Thank you Lois!
I hope your friend loves it as much as we do!
