Ecentrik Artistry has recently been featured in The New York Optimist (see the direct link in the links section on the right hand side of this page).
I met John Sebastian, the Publisher of the New York Optimist, this past summer at the Ehvonnae grand opening in Brooklyn (which also took place the same day as the DUMBO Arts Festival) while doing a live customization. I contacted John shortly thereafter and the wheels instantly began to turn and things started to go into motion. For the brief time I have known John we instantly clicked and I got to know him as a very genuine person and a class act (which is a rare thing with some people these days). I've always considered myself a pretty good judge of character and John is an absolute great guy to know and I have met some wonderful people in his circle as well and look forward to building on these new friendships.
The shoes pictured above are a design made for John with a theme consisting of our Universe, as it contains all the planets in the Solar System (Earth, Venus, Jupiter, Mars, Uranus, Saturn, Mercury, Neptune, & Pluto). It was a theme requested by John that I had never done before but then looked forward to the challenge and fortunately (whew!) was able to pull it off pretty well. Again I want to thank John for this great opportunity and definitely look forward to working with him in the future as well as building upon this new friendship. I also want to thank the entire staff of the New York Optimist for all the love and appreciation that has been shown as well. I am looking forward to a great 2011!
