 As part of the campaign surrounding the collaborative sneaker  ACRONYM X Nike Air Force 1 Downtown , Nike asked  Paul Pope  to elaborate on a greater narrative surrounding  ACRONYM’s  founder, Errolson Hugh and the new sneaker. Having long drawn apparel to fit certain comic book characters within his art, Paul was immediately drawn to the project, which required of him to create a dystopian science fiction comic strip surrounding the new Air Force 1 sneaker, starring Errolson.

 “I am really interested in the future of drone technology and self-automated robots, so I wanted it to be as realistic as possible.”, adds Pope. “They are the future of battlefield weaponry and I thought they were the perfect symbol of a dystopian Sci-Fi story”.
