New Photos of the ASTRO Gaming x Freehand Profit HALO 5 Helmet

Last night at midnight ASTRO Gaming and I brought you pics of our latest collaboration – a Spartan Locke helmet made from LeBron 12s, KLR Goggles and of course a special HALO 5 edition wireless A40 headset. Working with ASTRO means working with a lot of great people, photographer Engrique Espinoza is the perfect example….

The Freehand Files: No.89 Miami Nights 11 Gas Mask

I’ve had a pretty close tie with the number 89 ever since my 15th mask – that’s when I first met the guys from Eight & Nine Clothing at the very first SneakerCon LA. Since then I’ve worked with Eight & Nine in a number of capacities, sometimes it’s as a designer, other times we’re exhibiting…

The Freehand Files: No.88 Kings Crown ASTRO Gaming Master Chief Helmet

With HALO 5 releasing at Midnight today is the perfect day to take a look back at my 88th sneaker mask – a Master Chief helmet made from “King’s Crown” LeBron 11s and a functioning ASTRO Gaming wireless headset. Tonight at 12am EST/9pm PST, to coincide with the release of HALO 5, ASTRO Gaming and I will…

The Freehand Files: No.72 Lebron X Christmas Gas Mask

I know it’s not even Halloween yet, let’s not start with the Chistmas hype already. This is definitely not that, just the next in a chronological (for the most part) remastering of all the sneaker masks I’ve created. All leading up to the release of my 100th sneaker mask, an elephant gas mask based on…

The Freehand Files: No.71 Cork X Gas Mask

Originally released December 1, 2013, here’s a great insight from the it’s release post : The masks I make are a tribute to our humanity – to our history of mask making and the parts of our society that are dying off. It’s the exploration of what ‘things’ have  come to replace masks and then…

The Freehand Files: No.69 King’s Pride 11 Gas Mask

The King’s Pride Gas Mask still stands as a personal favorite of mine. From the mask itself to the photo shoot it felt like pitching a perfect game. Folks are often surprised to find out that I shot the King’s Pride Gas Mask in our small LA apartment. With the help of my wife Betsy…

The Freehand Files: No. 32 Summit Lake Hornet 9 Gas Mask

One of my first abandoned location photo shoots, the LeBron 9 Summit Lake Hornets Gas Mask was shot on Anacapa Island off the California coast. It debuted in 2012 in the “Army of the Undeadstock” book but didn’t release online until February 1, 2013.

The Freehand Files: No.29 Nike LeBron 9 Elite “Miami Vice” Gas Mask

What else could follow up the South Beach 8 Gas Mask? The 29th sneaker mask by Freehand Profit was created from a single pair of “Miami Vice” Nike LeBron 9 Elites. It originally released November 12, 2012 and was featured in Freehand’s first art book: Army of the Undeadstock.

The Freehand Files: No.28 Nike LeBron 8 “South Beach” Gas Mask

Pretty crazy that the first couple of LeBron masks I have made were made from some of the rarest/most hyped shoes of the impressive Nike LeBron collection. What a lot of people don’t know is that the mask was a breakthough in my technique. I’ll go further in depth in my next book but I’ll…

The Freehand Files : No.23 Nike LeBron IV Dunkman Gas Mask

This mask carries some serious weight. Not only is it tattooed on my forearm, it was also commissioned by the shoe’s designer which was and still is an incredible compliment. Sebastian Bleak and I shot this mask in LA, while driving around the city looking for locations we got a collect call from a good…

New Photos of Miami Nights 11 Gas Mask

Recently I had the pleasure to shoot again with photographer Justin Butts (@justinbuttsfilm). You may recognize the name from our collaboration on the Stealth III Gas Mask photo shoot. We met up in the deepest LA shadows to shoot @NickyLifestyles wearing the LeBron 11 “Miami Nights” Gas Mask. Check out the galleries below for another…

New mask by Freehand Profit made from Lebron 9 “Summit Lake Hornets”

A lot of folks have been wondering when I’d get around to working with a pair of Lebron 9s (because let’s be honest, the Elites are a whole ‘nother beast). I’ve been keeping this beauty under wraps as an exclusive for my book “Army of the Undeadstock” which released last November on PROFITink.com. Since then…
