Multi-hyphenate Tyler, The Creator has enlisted 21-year-old artist Spencer McMullen for the latest Converse Artist Series Chuck 70. As part of Converse's on-going Artist Series, the iconic Chuck 70's canvas upper sports hand-drawn work by McMullen himself. Each colorful drawing was made in Spencer's LA-based home studio and features portraits, characters and a variety of verbiage. After growing up with the brand, applying my artwork to this sneaker was really a dream come true, said McMullen in an official press release. "But I didn't want to disrupt the silhouette too much, because it is perfect in its simplicity. So, over a few months, I worked on new drawings and paintings to feature on the canvas, pulling inspiration from real stories that are documented around me – like books and photos on the internet of my life back in Jacksonville. I also kept a new, blank Chuck 70 on my desk to look at every day and I spread all my work on the floor around me to assess and arrange in different ways.
