Timothy Liles is a RISD student who’s been dabbling in all sorts of hot shit. He makes objects, drawings, graphics, prints, movies, grilled cheese sandwiches and magic. There’s a superb molded metal bench in his portfolio right alongside some pretty wacky t-shirts with built in masks.
These Chuck Taylors were designed during his internship with Converse and should drop in July 05. Timothy describes his inspiration for the design: “I wanted it to look like a doodle you might do in high school during a rather dry math class. So this hypothetical high schooler is somewhat enthralled by Chuck Taylor (who in this case is to be considered a real person and quite a heartthrob).”
