Josh was commissioned by M&C Saatchi London, to produce a set of illustrations for the newly released Chuck II trainer. The campaign is running online and in print - so look out for them on a billboard soon!

Josh gives us some background on his approach below:

'The brief was very open so I wanted to create something abstract and ominous that would make people do a double take.

The main themes I wanted to capture in the illustrations was a strong sense of freedom, movement and strength. The characters are alive and surrounded by exciting objects. Bubbles, confetti and curves all capture the bounce of the new Lunarlon sole where as the pillar, rubble and blocks represent the strength of Converse the brand.'
