Rizal 150

Hey hey! So these are the newest sneakers I've done :) I'm lucky to be involved in a great project put on by my cousin, Jim. Check it out here! June 19th will be Jose Rizal's 150th birthday and if you are filipino, you should know who he is! June 18th will be the big day of the celebration, and I was asked to be a featured artist! My sneaker customizing services will be auctioned off and these are for display.

These sneakers are on toddler size Stan Smiths. "Rizal" on one sneaker and his face on the other sneaker. On the insides read one of Rizal's quotes, "Genius has no country. It blossoms everywhere. Genius is like the light, the air. It is the heritage of all." Also, you can't do a filipino-theme sneaker without stars too! Well, you can but it just doesn't feel right - lol!

I'll keep you posted once the event happens :)
