Sneakerology Brainstorm

Sneakerology Brainstorm - student project

this is my initial inspiration.. its really more of a brainstorm at the moment..

I've been really attracted to the idea of patterns overlapping patterns of the same design lately, and its been popping up everywhere from the subway train in nyc to a wedding in baltimore, md. because it is the same scale it creates more of a textural component or a topograhic feeling.

i'd like to explore the concept further, muting the wild prints a bit with matte vs glossy tonal patterns or using similar surface treatments to retain the graphic qualities.
here is the beginning of my concept:

i'm still waiting for the style of shoe i want to use to grab me, but i think i will sketch out a few concepts and take it from there...
thanks for looking!
