Diem Chau + W+K = NIKE Crayons- 06.09.10
Unbelievably awesome. When my favorite crayon carver, Diem Chau, emailed me with pics last night of the latest project with W+K for Nike… for World Cup… the press kit for Write the Future campaign…. i was instantly amazed and jealous of all the lucky folks that got one. Such a beautiful piece of art. Incredibly packaged. Awesome idea. All the soccer stars are personified in crayon carvings! Huge thanks and congrats to Diem and W+K on an awesome project (and for providing the pics!) and see close ups on the next page…
Firstly ~ the amazingly epic NIKE Write the Future World Cup spot
Didier Drogba in Copper from Crayola. This color was introduced in 1957 and is Charles Schulz’s favorite color from Crayola.
Fabio Cannavaro in Antique Brass from Crayola. This color was introduced in 1998 in the 120 box set.
Wanye Rooney in Timberwolf from Crayola. Introduced in 1993 in the Big Box of 96.
Franck Ribery in Gold from Crayola. The color was introduced in 1949 in the 48 box set.
Robinho in Silver from Crayola. This color was introduced with Gold in 1949 in the 48 box set.

The 6 figures that are in each kit. In the final version Robinho (far left in Silver) sticks his tongue out slightly and Rooney (Grey) has his arm folded instead of raised above his head.
