THE SNEAKERS:

The sneakers are Chuck Taylor All Star Shorlines. I chose these because of their classic silhouette, and the low top style will serve me well in the warmer months (and possibly Miami!). I think they speak to a young, hip New Yorker who isn’t afraid to sport a statement piece.The juxtaposition of the patterns and colors make for a  funky, yet wearable design. Below is a link to view them on the Converse website. I have also attached a screen grab for your convenience.

THE VIDEO

You asked for a snapshot of the shoes, and I am giving you about 400. This video is a stop motion film composed of over 400 frames. It features roughly 40 paper cutout photographs of myself, 80 cutouts of my custom designed Converse sneakers, and hand illustrated sets. I shot the video, edited it, animated it, and did all the sound design by myself. It was a labor of love, and I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed making it.
