So the very talented designer, Chris Darmon, who created this awesome artwork & possible collectible figure/product called #Diamond Dunks doesn’t want you to see this yet. Too bad, these are too awesome not to share and if you think they are cool then you should share them too.
WORK IN PROGRESS >>> SCRAM KIDDOS! >>> YOU AREN’T SUPPOSED TO SEE THIS!
What happens when a designer starts to merge all his loves and passions in life into a product!? “Diamond Dunkers”, that’s what happens. This is my third baby I’m posting on the internet for public eyes to see (Matchbox shoe packaging and #50CrappyDunks being the first two). This is my first attempt at industrial design and a commercial investment (meant to actually make $$$). I believe this work could get produced and be quite successful if so. There are millions of NBA fans around the world, millions of dunk contest fans and vinyl art collectors seen on such sites as Kid Robot. Diamond Dunkers would be an attempt to merge such passions into limited edition collectible art figures that are both underground, yet available to the masses and basketball fans around the globe via limited edition runs.
