Following his “Space Sneaker” illustrations, Bucharest-based illustrator Ghica Popa has morphed five of his favorite New Balance collaborative releases into cartoon machines. The West NYC “Alpine Guide” MT580 becomes a snowmobile; the Concepts “C-Note” 998 transforms into an armored vehicle; the Kith “Daytona” 1600 celebrates with a pool party; the LaMJC x Undefeated x colette MT580 appears to be a professional team’s coach touring bus; and Sneaker Freaker’s “Tassie Devil” 998 becomes a robotic version of the endangered Tasmanian Devil. Be sure to visit Ghica’s official website to see more of his work.
