I was commissioned to illustrate this poster as a gift for the founder of Shoestring Gold Films, a Philadelphia-based production company. After a┬ábit of research, a few phone calls and a bunch of questions, I decided to base the illustration on the company’s mantra: “it is possible to make great film – unique film – with limited means,” the founder’s love of Chuck Taylors and familiar scene of sneakers hanging on telephone wires throughout Philadelphia.
