This group of sketches is from my spring 2009 sketchbook, which seems so recent to me but these sketches make it seem so long ago. These sketches are three separate ideas that I never knew what to do with. Its not that they are bad ideas but I just didn’t know where to take them at the […]

What you are viewing here is the reason why I have yet to deliver Part 3 in my Form, Function & Philosophy of the FlyKnit Trainer. As I began to write Part 3 I started discussing what I felt the future could be for FlyKnit and if you recall in Part 2 the Function, I described why I […]

My sketchbook is an extension of me. It breathes life into a project that has yet to come to fruition. I am constantly searching for what is new, new color, new shape, new form, new mass, new philosophies, anything that makes me think different. What inspires me most about my sketchbook is that I don’t […]
