Artist-animator-illustrator Ian ‘Albinal’ Ball has been contributing his multi-talents for the SneakerCon event fliers for over a year now. With each new flier Ian captures the state of which the event is held though cities scapes, notable monuments and adding twist of that underground sneaker swag that only locals could recognize. Using simple graphics and colorful illustrations, Ian gives each city its own personal identity that is never recycled. His latest work for SneakerCon is probably his best yet! Ian has recreated an actual piece of a SneakerCon event, through a less 2 minute animation he gives you inside look to what the event is really all about. The animation is inspired by a well-known movie…that you’ll have to guess! (hint: directed by Robert Rodriguez and written by Quentin Tarantino).
