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.
