important 90s artifact

Driven From Within
edited by Mark Vancil

This was a random book find but what sets it apart from other Michael Jordan bios is the focus on the branding aspect including in-depth interviews with Tinker Hatfield on the creation of each shoe. Besides being a huge Nike advertisement, it also features lots of quotes from MJ himself through the years, along with his close friends and family.

Recommended for sneakerheads or those wanting a neatly designed coffee table book on Michael Jordan.

Wish Kiko was my gf so we can go on camping trips and laugh and play Jenga and build bonfires and shit and then go running together at dusk in perfect unison while wearing our coordinated Nike gear.

Nike/W+K does it again. Sam Cooke and Kevin Durant.

Pretty sure I’m never leaving the couch on Christmas

I’ve been so blindly consumed by hockey that I’ve kind of been … not IGNORING the NBA lockout, per se, but just not getting all that upset about it at this point. But every time I watched this commercial today (and “every time” added up to a lot of times) I got really, really sad :(

OY VEY

Begged my mom for these shoes in ‘97! To match my Gary Payton jersey. Act like I wasn’t a Sonics fan since middle school.
ED. NOTE: This is a silly post if only to slightly address the slew of hate mail I’ve received lately over this t-shirt I designed. In context, the design was meant for former Sonics fans turned OKC Thunder fans (yes, they exist! as they should!) to represent both teams and to “never forget" where they once came from. Of course, die-hards and homers seem to disagree with the sentiment and because of it, I should from now on live my life—according to these emails and Facebook messages—in fear of drive-bys, punches to the face, and kicks to my balls. First world problems, guys. It is not a personal attack against you, your history, your city, your team, nor its fans. IT’S JUST A T-SHIRT. Move on.
