As you may have seen, we've just launched the latest in our ongoing series of screenprints and it's by London-based illustratior Rob Flowers. To help celebrate the launch, we thought we'd show you some of Rob's other sneaker-related work here on the blog...
We first commissioned Rob back in 2011 when he contributed a Nike Air Jordan 1-inspired artwork to the second ever 'A Few of My Favourite Sneakers' (as part of illustration agency Toy's joint effort). Following on from that, Rob also took part in the 2012 Intercity-commissioned Nike Free Run iD project, where he created an illustration of a 'Nike Wizard' in response to a Nike Free Run+ shoe designed by Olympic pole-vaulter Holly Bleasedale. More recently, Flowers was also commissioned in 2013 by design agency Rosie Lees to create a London-inspired mural for the Nike UK headquarters (shown bottom).
Entitled Anatomy of a Sneaker, Rob's piece for the ongoing A&S screenprint series brings to life (as only Rob Flowers can) the various elements that make up a pair of sneakers. Listing everything from aglets to outsoles, the artwork (shown top) combines a vaguely educational concept with Rob's trademark bold colours, playful forms and eccentric characters.
Anatomy of a Sneaker by Rob Flowers is limited to an edition of 50, emboss stamped and signed and numbered for authenticity. To purchase a print, please click here
