I painted this painting in high school from a Reeboks ad. It still hangs in my bedroom even though the canvas stretching and framing of the painting were all very mediocre. I don’t remember Reeboks actually looking like these shoes – either my memory is poor or the likeness is – can’t say which anymore. I love parts of this painting – and cringe at other parts – which is still true of most of my work that I do now.

And while we’re checking out artwork from high school, why not add this drawing:
