The last 72 hours have been crazy. My sketch was meant to be a joke, but people pushed it and now I have a chance to send a proper pitch to Adidas. I can’t thank you all enough…
This is where the hard work starts. It’s one thing to post a sketch and have it go viral and it’s another thing to actually get a shoe designed and put into production. Please understand that this might fall through and be nothing more than a viral sketch at the end of the day.
Nevertheless, I promise to give this my absolute best and learn from the experience. Thank you so much for all your help. Please keep me in your prayers.
