Reebok Kamikaze

As most of you are aware, I am a designer at Reebok by day (Paperfashion by night!). I try to keep the two worlds pretty separate… but had to illustrate this one. The Kamikaze sneaker was released last Friday… and sold out in a flashhhhh. It’s part of Reebok’s collaboration with producer Swizz Beatz.

My friend Jeremy designed the shoe… and it’s definitely lookin hot with that neon!

    I am so proud of the success of Reebok, the success of Swizz Beatz, but more importantly the success of Jeremy Sallee (my stepson) who is the designer. He is truly blessed, a very grounded young man and a true role model for his younger brothers and sisters. Thanks for sharing his design!

      ♥ Thanks everyone!! I used neon gouache paint for the pop! it’s amazing for adding neons… and still keeping that watercolor look.
