I was invited by Iamsound ( and Vans ( to be the featured artist for their VANS CLASSIC & BOSTON event this past November. I had an amazing time seeing friends, and handing out 50 pairs of customized vans shoes, to a live soundtrack provided by The Walkmen. In addition to the shoes, I was also asked to customize socks and create a shirt specific to the event. I chose to illustrate the dude off the MA state flag for the shirt, embellishing his silhouette with doodles of other items that represent New England. I ended up converting the socks into hand puppets, by silk screening goofy faces onto all 60 pairs. The sock puppets became quasi-mascots for the event, overseeing the show from my gifting station.

Also, they made this rad promotional video for the event.
