Converse Shoes Pop-In Shop at Nordstrom


Last week I had an exciting project come my way: I was one of fourteen people asked by Converse to come up with a design and then hand draw it on a number of pairs of sneakers for a promotion they are doing with Nordstrom.

I will post some more photos later of the process of drawing on the shoes, but click here to see Nordstrom's promotional piece on all the different artist's designs.

Robert Walser


I did not know about the writer Robert Walser until very recently while reading a back issue of New Escapologist, in which Reggie Chamberlain-King wrote a wonderful article about Walser.

Walser was a fascinating man with a life–and death–steeped in mystery.

I started searching for photos of him, was taken by his face, and consequently decided to do a sketch the other night.

Many thanks to the New Escapologist team for their consistent gems of stimulation.
