Our next Pen & Paper takes a different approach from the customary sketches seen in the past features. Joined by Hing Yeung of Hong Kong Stunt Team, a design studio based out of Santa Ana, California, Yeung translates his craft onto a medium he knows best: footwear. Yeung first walks us through the steps in turning a concept into a physical product with his more recent collaboration with Hot Wheels and a hot rod-inspired kids shoe complete with flame outsole. Taking up the challenge in putting the HYPEBEAST name on a trainer concept, Yeung harnessed a bit of his cultural background along with his passion in architecture and fused them into an adaptation of the city of Hong Kong. With tall buildings, red taxis and building blocks in mind — joined by some serious Illustrator and Photoshop skills — a final rendering was achieved.
