Sketching Exercise

Side project sketching exercise-

Revival Converse style, based on the Pro Team, Pro Star, Pro Leather, Weapon. Overall design focused on ankle support and use of large, high quality leather panels in reference to the original leather styles.

No overcomplicated technical story here, just exploration of pattern and minimal overlays with links to the original forms. Some patterns are flipped (ie. overlay becomes an underlay) and others are exaggerated in size/proportion.
