Lydia Kasumi Shirreff
We’ve covered a fair few paper-craft sneaker projects on the blog (and in the book) over the years… but none have had quite the level of finesse as this beautifully shot work from London-based illustrator and set designer Lydia Kasumi Shirreff…
Originally commissioned by Oh Comely magazine in 2013, the project was a collaboration between Shirreff and photographer Daniel Fraser. ‘It was fairly early on in my career,’ explains Shirreff, ‘and I was looking for a good challenge. Oh Comely sent me the sneakers as inspiration and it took just over a week to recreate them in paper. It still stands out as one of my favourite projects, really helping push my practice and techniques forward.'
