Sneaker Freak – Air 1985

Nakamura - Sneaker Freak - Air 1985

A classic sneaker illustration for all the Sneaker Freaks out there. The Air Jordan is an icon of the 80’s, having been first released by Nike in 1985. I have layered the illustration over a complimentary retro pattern appropriate for the times. You can also find the background pattern as a stand-alone work, titled “Stolen 1985”.

Twigged Textile Pattern

Nakamura - Twigged Textile - Grey

Twigged distills the essence of nature with its tree branch structure and organic feel. Part of the Nakamura Textile Series.

This pattern was created specifically for Throw Pillow use, but works well with other textile items. An abstract collection of branches create an interesting organic pattern. The pattern is layered over a seamless canvas texture for added detail on any surface.

Copacabana – Midnight 3

Nakamura - Copacabana - Midnight 3

Copacabana encapsulates elements of Rio, with its lovely palm trees and the iconic pattern of the historic Copacabana Boardwalk. This series has a number of derivative designs aptly titled around the time of day.

This piece is “Copacabana – Midnight 3” and exchanges the lively green palm trees of Copacabana – Day 1, for a more muted look, representative of Night, in a vibrant blue hue. Again the Boardwalk pattern returns, and the stars in the night sky are more prominent.
