Ohhh, the memories from the last time he performed there -- that's where I first started working on Tayshaun Prince's shoes. That was my first NBA player project. I had a little table set-up with some other shoes I had painted. I was working on Tayshaun's pair live while Joe was performing. I think I was a Junior at GVSU at the time. It's hard to believe that was 5+ years ago already!
I'm really looking forward to have this guy back home. I've been itching to make it out to Los Angeles this year to visit him and his better half, but it just hasn't been in the cards for me. So I'll take this alternative solution any day. Mark it down on your calendars, buy your tickets now, and always: DREAM IMPOSSIBLE.
