Comedy Central: Kobe's Retirement Poem


"Kobe Bryant's retirement poem inspires two Nike employees to radically change the direction of the company's designs. Starring: Michael Truly as Truly, Ron Babcock as Ron, Sean Bury as Big Boss."

Comedy Central commissioned me to design and illustrate four different shoes based off of famous poets. The shoes are: Edgar A. Poe Elites (based off of the Kobe IX High), 2016 Rob Frost Shox (based off of the Nike Shox NZ), Flyknit Angelou's (based off of the Nike Flyknit Trainer), and Air Seuss (based off of the Air Jordan III, IV, V).
