Featured Artist: Freehand Profit “All Day I Dream About Stormtroopers”

Let me start by saying, I’ve seen a my fair share of Star Wars themed arts and craft by some very talented artist in my time. Every now and then I come across something that really blows me away. Like many of the things that I come to learn and write about, I usually discover things the same way that you do. Usually, it starts off with someone saying: “Dude, check this out!”

This case is no different. Sometime ago I received an email from Shane B. with the obligatory “Dude, check this out!” in the subject line and the body of the email contained a single and a lonely link. The sentence read: “Dude, have you seen the Adidas Storm Trooper Helmet?”

“Ok”, I thought…”what the hell could this be?” as I clicked my left mouse button.

Now there are many things I love in life but Star Wars and Adidas are ranked right up there, so when I found out about this artist who made a Storm Trooper 
helmet out of Adidas Tennis shoe parts, I had to find out for myself. So what is one to do when one doesn’t know where to begin looking for something? Thats right, I Googled it! And man, was I blown away with what I found out.
 I found this amazing Los Angeles based artist name “Freehand Profit” whose work is as dope as his Nom de plume! As I scrolled through his blog perusing the “fresh” that is “Freehand Profit”, I finally stumbled on the Holy Grail of Tennis Shoes turned Helmet: “The Adidas X Storm Trooper Helmet”.

My jaw dropped.

I don’t know how he did it but Freehand Profit pulled off one the BEST Star Wars themed art pieces I’ve ever seen. I can only Imagine what that thing must feel like on, the smell of brand new unused tennis shoe, the hollow muffled sound of my voice saying “Move Along” and the confidence of knowing that I was rocking one of a kind art on my dome piece. I can’t lie, if I had that thing on I would have to try and bust out some of my old Breaking moves or at least try to Up Rock with it on. Of course, I would have on kicks to match. Maybe even a white Adidas Track suit…come on, you gotta right?  “Rock, rock planet rock…dont stop!”

Obviously, the next thing that runs through my pea brain is “I want it, I gotta have it, where do I go get it?” Where does one go to get one of a kind art pieces? Why, EBAY of course! I did some searching and guess what… there was the helmet on ebay but it wasn’t alone, it brought along with its “Empire” sized price tag. My hopes where dashed and the reality of me being a Break Dancing Storm Trooper seemed far, far away.

I suppose its worth it, it takes time and effort to craft such an item. I’m not mad at Freehand Profit…a little bummed out maybe but he definitely deserves every penny he can get for his artwork. Hopefully I can interview Freehand Profit, I want to tell him how great I think the piece is and ask him a few questions like: How long did it take to make the helmet? Have you thought of a making a Vader one and the most important question of all “Dude, can you make me a Boba Fett helmet bro?!”
