the fix #15 | “FLY-WIRE” brand art graphic – NIKE

It’s been too long since my last installment of “the fix”. I intend to pump the sketches out much more frequently than I have as of late. Anyhow. This piece is an ode to the Nike’s trademarked technology “Flywire”. The concept is simple – use cords to create a lockdown system that interacts with the…

the fix #14 | northwest way of life
