By a stroke of luck, I was already heading to New York for an evening event when I was contacted to draw at a promotional event at the NikeTown store in Manhattan the same morning. My friend and colleague, Jon of San Francisco, had to cancel, due to illness and recommended me to fill in. Working with Salah (a digital artist from San Fran), we created digital caricatures for about 50 kids playing basketball and trying out the merchandise at NikeTown. It was a pretty fast-paced style, but a lot of fun.
With about an hour to spare after drawing the kids, the staff of NikeTown were pretty excited to have their turn at getting drawings done. Salah and I were only too happy to oblige and really enjoyed letting these folks join in on the fun. Oh, and a special thanks to Nike for the shoes and running gear. As a bit of a fitness nut, I’m going to get plenty of use out of them!
And my bonus…I got to keep the whole outfit that Nike gave to wear at this event! So cool!!!!
