Artist Sketch - An Immersive Experience
The Nike Art Department “Artist Sketch” is beyond a transaction, its an experience, one the lucky recipient will never forget. In addition to accepting the all white “bench”, you will receive a personal meeting with one of Nike’s most talented illustrators, KJ LeBeau. KJ will spend a few hours with the winner in a q&a learning about their lifestyle, obsessions and cultural interests. Together they will craft an illustrated narrative that KJ will then hand draw directly onto the “bench”. KJ and the recipient will agree to timing based on the complexity of the content determined. This unique opportunity provides the most personal and custom offering, creating a conversation piece to last generations.
K.J. LeBeau is a Graphic Designer/ Illustrator working as a Print and Pattern Designer at Nike. Born and Raised in Michigan, K.J. attended The College for Creative Studies in Detroit where he received his BFA in Illustration. After graduating he freelanced and worked in apparel graphics until joining the Nike Art Dept 3 years ago where he has remained since. Through Nike he has been given the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects in both apparel and footwear, personal highlights include creating prints for Serena Williams. He currently resides in Portland with his partner Laura and their beautiful pup Mei.
