Concept artwork created for Nike apparel: Kobe Bryant aka "The Black Mamba".
I was commissioned by Nike in June to create artwork for LeBron James' apparel line. After completing that piece (which I can't release until end of 2011!), I was asked to prepare this Kobe piece for his line; sadly I missed the deadline for the 2011 apparel run. Definitely a dream job for me, as I have been playing ball since I was 6, follow the NBA passionately and have a fairly massive sneaker problem.
