Last Friday we got to experience The "POLY MATH EXPERIMENT" a collaboration by ALEXANDERJOHN x PUMA  POLY MATH EXPERIMENT is based on the entrepreneur culture that made America what is and what it continues to be. A polymath is a person that has knowledge in many different fields and uses it to solve a problem.

In today's society that’s a normal thing with many of us being Bloggers, Photographers, Graphic Designers and more at the same time! ALEXANDERJOHN flew to Boston to work on this project with a team of Scientist, Artist, Engineers, Animators, and Architects who have all come together to make this project happen. They all work at a company called Danger Awesome that serves as a collaborative space and houses multiple 3D printing machines, Laser Engraving Machines and a CNC Machine as well.

With Their expertise and help ALEXANDERJOHN was able to present the Worlds first collaboration with PUMA between and a Custom Sneaker Artist to release in a store! Each shoe is laser engraved in 5 places. The process to make this wasn’t easy, each shoe was hand turned and the image had to be resized to fit the space every time we put a new shoe in the machine Making each pair unique! ALEXANDERJOHN worked around the clock with Laser Technicians who on their day jobs are much more than that! ALEXANDERJOHN felt as if he was getting smarter by the minute! The team completed 24 pairs in 4 days and the team couldn’t be happier with the outcome. 

ALEXANDERJOHN also did a live art installation and shoe launch at the PUMA store in KING of PRUSSIA MALL in Philadelphia on Friday September 4th. There are only 24 pairs available in store and online as well.

Amazing to see how the culture has grown here in Delaware. Proud of LACEDSNEAKER team for putting this show on for the culture. Big ups to the sponsors. Retro Fitness, Villa, & 87ers.

Book Cover Photography: DEAR FATHER by J ivy

We got commissioned by Beyond Book Publishing to photographed the cover of "DEAR FATHER: The cycle of pain by J. IVY. 

 J. Ivy is a true pioneer and trendsetter who’s bridged the worlds of hip-hop and poetry through his appearances on HBO’s Def Poetry and his collaborations with Kanye West and Jay-Z. But throughout his success, he carried with him the pain of being abandoned by his father and growing up in the tough neighborhoods of Chicago’s South Side.

So he sat down with pen and paper and processed his pain the only way he knew how—through poetry. The resulting poem, Dear Father, became his vehicle of forgiveness and healing. It is a pivotal poem that has touched and inspired the lives of millions.

Fused with his signature raw lyricism and street consciousness, J. Ivy’s memoir shows what it takes to deal with your emotions before your emotions deal with you. His story is personal yet universal, and will inspire others to channel whatever pain they have experienced into their own powerful gift of expression. Support Greatness.......
