Subject: God is good!!!
Where do I begin!
Sometimes the goodness of God catches U off guard!!!
Happened 2 me less than an hour ago!!!
Here's all bout it!!!
While waiting on the shower I decided 2 take a gander at the release clothes catalog (an
Eastbay ,not a whole bunch,just one!) This one was outdated like the one I seen on another
unit. Either way. Nevertheless I paged through the July 2020 football edition,hoping 2 get my
design mind wet,well as see if I could find some yellow kicks 2 ask my brother 2 get me 4 my
welcome home fit!
Sadly there was nothing with a hint of yellow! Closet - white n gold kicks n gloves! Maybe next
time!!! Maybe if my glasses were white n gold. But as fate would have it,their yellow! Meanwhile
lotta shoes with cleats! I probably could pull em off but...Did see a couple cool pair of Jordan's.
Wouldn't mind designing least 1 pair of em! Gotta couple sketches I did under the Jordan logo in
my portfolio... Through at times I doubt I can live up 2 they design standards! I'm less likely 2 tell
a story with my designs n more apt 2 just design something I'd wear/think is hot!!! Even in funky
color ways that may not even match! But that's me tho'.
Did see some cool LeBrons n some ill Paul Georges n Kyrie's N even iler air max ... Then it
was on 2 the adidas section. Cool! Finally learned that the old school logo of theirs called
"trefoil". Pages after that I bumped into the kid section brought 2 U by Nike. My excitement
which remained less than stellar caught a heart attack when I reached the back cover!
In a thought bubble were the boldest letter shouting
" DRAW MY & WIN BIG"
just under it ,a Hoka Clifton Edge
As I surveyed the details
"U may be selected as a prospective student at Pensole Academy,the world's only school
dedicated 2 footwear design."
...use pen,paper, or marker... no tracing allowed...
MAIL - IN
Excitedly I showed the ad 2 a friend n told him I was gone send that shoe design n one of my
originals 2 get evaluated by professional footwear designers! Y not?!? I'll be home soon n got
going 2 design school on my dream/vision board!
N wouldn't U know I first heard bout Pensole in January 2018 via a basketball magazine,Slam.
Within days I sat down n sketched out like 5 of my best designs n enclosed a bio manly
highlighting that I been designing shoes in my cell 4 the last 17yrs n craved professional
They never responded.
Maybe it wasn't time
Maybe now it is
Think bout it!
What R the odds I was coloring a Nike I designed early this afternoon!
What R the odds that I picked up designing again just last week as I got blessed with some
What R the odds I bought a 9x12 at canteen Wednesday 2 send something,not knowing exactly
What R the odds that I been Praying 4 a pick me up! something fun 2 do while I'm waiting on a
release date. Designing shoes will do
What R the odds that I checked out a graffiti book yesterday so I could get some exposure 2
art,colors, scenery, lessons etc.
What R the odds?!?
N even odder enuff in the midst of it all an "enemy" got all in my business n started asking what
all I b doin art wise
"I design clothes,shoes,bears,trinkets,n all kinds of stuff..." I replied while letting him see the pics
of some Jordan a friend sent
I wound up showering with a smile on my faced n joy in my heart!
God is good
