http://www.intercitystudio.com/ recently commissioned awesome sneaker customizer Alex Nash to create a piece of artwork as part of the inspiration Ingenuity project. The project revolved around a competition the Havana Club are running based on the theme of Inspired Ingenuity (the way they see the spirit of the people of Havana). The competition is taking place over the first six months of 2011, challenging artists, musicians and other creative talents to takes the everyday and turn it into something special. A winner will be picked each month, and the final winner will win a trip to Cuba.

To help promote the competition, Intercity commissioned three artists to create a piece of work that takes the everyday and turns it into something special. Nash's brief was simple: take the everyday and turn it into something special. His answer was to transform a pair of all-white Nike Air Force 1’s into a fully functional set of 'Sneaker Speakers'.

These would look awesome on my desk :)

    "Get in the damn robot, Shinji." Rotobox are some of the most talented customizers around. And given that they pull their influces from cult classics and pop culture favorites, it's no wonder why their work is such a crow-pleaser. This newest custom Celsius is no exception.

    64 Colors just unloaded a bunch of new customs, included several Marshalls, a Dunny, and a Trikky. As always, these pieces are amazing. Check out the gallery below or hit up their site where a few of these are still available.

    Jon-Paul Kaiser follows up his ship in a bottle themed 3" Sketchup Dunny (originally by SketOne) with this new custom. This one is specifically influenced by Moby Dick, replacing the previous version's skull / octopus with the book's whale.
