A few weeks ago, my buddy who runs the Originals store in Costa Mesa asked if wanted to display sneakers in their cashwrap display case. They were running low on accessories, so the case was available! I had some sneakers there in the past, so it was cool to be able to show some stuff again :) The Yo Gabba Gabba and Pacquiao sneakers are from the past, but I decided to do a new pair too -- a junior version of the "Get Your Own Style". They have the same elements just on a kids Superstar. I like how they turned out -- clean chaos! So the case has 3 pairs and a few business cards. My favorite spraycan vinyl toy holds a card up as well! What's super cool is that within 5 hours of putting the sneakers in the case, I got a new client who wanted his own pair of customs. He like the cartoon Pacquiaos, so we made arrangements to hook him up!

So a while back, I did some Green Day-themed sneakers for my younger cousin Reese. He's a HUGE Green Day fan and I just got this picture of him wearing them out :) It's always fun to see how the sneakers look on each person. Lookin' good Reese!!
Also, I mentioned that I was displaying sneakers at Visual Art Supply last week. Here are a few pictures of the wall. I displayed ones that I've done before: Manila Royals and Rizals. Then I did a new pair as well, which I gave you a sneak-peek of earlier in the "Stylo Preview". They will be there for the entire month of August, so I'm happy to get some exposure and have people see my stuff :) I was able to get in touch with some people to possibly display some of my "Filipino-themed" sneakers at the upcoming Fil-Am (Filipino-American) Festival later this year. Any exposure and possible business are always worth it!
