Is your fashion sense tingling? Because this Spider-Man's got MILES of style! Swing into the Spider-Verse with the Limited Edition 'Miles' (Matte Black Version) Designer Collectible Toy by Tracy Tubera.
Artist Statement: I have always loved the design and colors of SNEAKERS. The bright colors and intricate designs are the same reasons why I love COMIC BOOKS/SUPER HEROES. Also, there is always the story behind a certain Super Hero. Their SECRET ORIGIN. The amazing story of how a character got his/her powers. Or the incredible circumstances that caused a character to become a Super Hero. Most sneakers also have their own “Secret Origin”. The process that it took a designer to get to the final look of a sneaker. What inspired the look of a shoe. What influenced the use of certain materials or colors. So many things in common that I always felt needed to be explored.
These vinyl figures are what I call S.H.S. aka Super Heroes in Sneakers- two things that meant a lot to me growing up and still do to this day. Two completely different cultures mashed together to create a new visual of things most people wouldn’t normally see together. I always wondered what kicks my favorite Super Hero would wear. That’s why I would create these illustrations and now DESIGNER TOYS!
MILES is one of my favorite MARVEL characters. He is SPIDER-MAN, but his own version of the hero. Much like PETER, MILES is driven to do good no matter what. And he does it in his own style. For this piece, I wanted to capture MILES in action. Like he was just pushed back, but ready to JUMP back into the fight. I wanted lots of motion in this piece, since SPIDEY is always in motion. I also wanted to showcase MILES’ love for sneakers. I feel that he is a pure Sneaker Head who loves the classics & collects the classic ones that would always match his outfit.
