I am just crazy about Throw Pillows and Society6’s throw pillows are made from quality materials with excellent color reproduction. Throw Pillows are just a great way to add a bit of art to your everyday life.

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”.
