Hey, my name is Nate, and I’m a graphic designer / illustrator based just outside of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I create artwork inspired by my love for the ever changing culture of sneakers. I’ve been in and out of the sneaker game, starting off with sneakers such as Shaqs and Reeboks and eventually making my way towards Yeezys, Jordans, and New Balance.
I’ve always loved art and illustrating things, and it led to my combining my passion for illustrating with my love of sneakers. I consider Vectored Soles to be as constantly growing and evolving as the sneakers themselves - and I always find myself getting inspired and creating in tandem with sneakers as they release. I’m someone who loves to constantly learn and grow - whether that’s through my skill set or expanding the subjects I work on, while also somehow incorporating it back to sneakers. I do my best to make my work as true to myself as well - so you might notice a lot of common themes or characters illustrated in different ways.
It’s amazing to see the amount of supporters along the way, meeting new faces either through social media or in person at events such as Sneakercon. It’s a truly humbling experience to meet people who appreciate the work I come up with.
While this may not have been a long excerpt, If you made it this far, I appreciate you taking the time to get to know me!
