THE PURPLE DUNK

The Purple Dunk
The young Kobe was obsessed by MJ. He wanted to do everything Micheal did and then doing something more. He was so into it that he knew the names of the best photographers who shot the most iconic photo of Jordan.
So to me the goal was to create an illustration that will please more Kobe himself than me or his supporters. I took inspiration by one of the most icon photo by the great Walter Iooss Jr. “The Blue Dunk” shot in 1987 and I made my personal reinterpretation “The Purple Dunk”.
