Found these old renders of some sandal concepts on my computer. The design is by one of my work mates, can't take the credit for those, but I had the pleasure of rendering the line art. Always fun bringing a project to life with some shading and light.

Honored to be listed on 'Snowboarder magazine’s 2014 piping hot product picks' post on 'GrindTV', Jan. 30th. Above a great impression from their photo shoot and below the product description from their website. Was quite the process, this boot. I'll post more on this sweet boot in the near future.
'Travis Rice is an insane shredder, literally. Just as he annihilates the alpine Travis destroys the tools of his trade. Knowing this Rice and DC set out to make a signature boot that can stand up to the routine beatings that a rider of his stature subjects his gear to. This is how they arrived at the highly durable substance known as Super Fabric, and unlike Travis’s off-piste passion project, there is nothing natural about this next level material. In addition to the strategic Super Fabric integration, the Travis Rice employs a Boa H3 Coiler Focus Closure System and features a Unilite outsole. Never one to overlook the aesthetic, Travis even teamed up with his friends at Remind Insoles and longtime collaborator Mike Parillo to include custom TR endorsed footbeds with each pair.

Thanks again for the post, stoked!

I'm not holding true to the Sketch Book part of the post here. This was rather the the final side view for a shoe called the Ranger, which was released by DC Shoes this fall.

A little side project I worked on for DC's Winter '13 Snowboard boot line. Goal was to add some value to a very price challenged boot. I went for patches as a fun and different approach on this model, the 'Scout'. The collage shows the process form early ideation, over line art for the chosen samples to the actual samples and the finished product.
