Originally part of a collective contribution from illustration agency Handsome Frank.
Tim McDonagh spent his younger years growing up in a rural part of America, surrounded by rattlesnakes and snapping turtles which in turn led to his fascination of animals. He takes a more traditional approach to illustration, using brush and Indian ink to draw the image and then applying limited colour palettes digitally. As an illustrator Tim also values detail, which is evident through his meticulous line work. He also loves to draw grass.
Handsome Frank is an illustration agency, representing some of the finest contemporary artists on the planet. They promote and manage the creative talents of a very select group of illustrators and visual artists, overseeing projects from conception to completion.

A Few of My Favourite Sneakers (AFOMFS)
AFOMFS is curated by Art & Sole (at Intercity). Art & Sole is both a book and an online resource that celebrates the creative side of sneaker culture; featuring the best artist / designer sneaker collaborations, as well as showcasing artists who based their work on sneakers – from sculptures made from dissected shoes, to oil paintings on canvas. Not content with simply writing about all the creative collaborations out there, Art & Sole also currently curate two projects based on the theme of art and sneakers. The second of these curatorial projects, and the basis for this collaboration with Stereohype, is entitled A Few Of My Favourite Sneakers. The project is an ongoing series which sees Art & Sole commission select artists and illustrators to draw their favourite sneakers. Individual artists are asked to draw ten sneakers in total, and illustration collectives can submit one sneaker per artist. The results of the project so far can be seen within the AFOMFS category on the Art & Sole website, and selected images from the series are also available to purchase as limited edition giclée prints through the Art & Sole shop.
