Two weeks ago, Sneaker News showed you some dope sneaker art by Rhyen, a series of Air Jordans, Nikes, Reeboks, and other classics drawn up in a bubbly, cartoonized style. That collection of sneakers, titled ‘Kick Draw‘ was actually inspired by the great artwork of Robb Harskamp, who first created his own collection of Air Jordans, commissioned by Nike for Tinker Hatfield’s 30th Anniversary Party. Robb’s work featured the classic Bulls colorways of some of Tinker’s most memorable Air Jordan creations spanning from Air Jordan III to XX3, and once Robb was completed with his set, Rhyen felt compelled to carry on the baton by continuing Robb’s extraordinary work and branching out into other brands. If you enjoyed last week’s segment, check out the true OG of that unique style of sneaker art below, and check out his full portfolio at Harsky for a look at some of his other sick work, like with the NBA Dunk Contest, NBA Championship Rings and various professional sports teams.

Stupidest shit ever said. How about going for performance while also incorporating style and luxury like they did in "the old days".
Who are you to define art? With your ignorant ass. Is it because it doesn't have some deep ass meaning. Or random scribbly lines rollin thru it. Smh. Ignorant nigga.
