I’ll never forget this project. Not only was it in the dead of winter, it would just so happen to align “perfectly” with the coldest week ever recorded in Melbourne (for the time of year) - I couldn't believe it. It also rained on and off every damn day ....and hailed.
 
That said, while it was pretty miserable week in terms of weather wise, I can't complain as the guys at Hello Sailor really looked after me (amazing coffee and food if you are ever in the area) while on project - and Converse approached me for an official partnership as well.
 
Anywho, the piece was inspired by one of my favourite pieces of flash by Sailor Jerry & a lyric by Notorious B.I.G.
