2020 Topps Project 2020 -- Jackie Robinson by Joshua Vides -- #98

Joshue Vides, known worldwide for his monochromatic hand-drawn line illustrations, is the fifth artist to tackle Jackie Robinson's 1952 Topps card. See it above.

Originally from Rialto, Vides began his career as a street culture influencer, artist and entrepreneur designer with the famed The Hundreds, while having his own brand called CLSC. But today's success came, like with a lot of folks in the scene, with sneakers -- Nike Air Jordan 1's to be exact. Per Mallory Chin at Hypebeast:
But it wasn’t until Vides posted a pair of hand-painted Air Jordan 1s on his IG that his phone quickly blew up. “I posted those shoes near the end of the day. As soon as I woke up I had all these new followers and mentions; all my friends were hitting me up,” Vides says excitedly. But how does he feel to be called a “professional” artist now? “I’ve studied art for a long time and I like crafting things with my hands. I’m really good at building things and molding things with clay. I put up a pair of shoes on social media and it just blows up,” Vides states. “My mom was like, ‘you’ve been doing this all your life and now people are calling you an artist?’”
And an influential artist, at that. Over the past few years he has collaborated with Fendi, Harrods, Nike, Converse, BE@RBRICKS, MLB, T-Mobile, MLB, NBA and Takashi Murakami -- just to name a few. You can find Joshua Vides on social media here: Instagram @joshuavides.
