Being in this business for so many years, there have been several instances where I have met amazing artists and I have made some unforgettable friends.
An example of this was at San Diego International Comic Convention (SDCC). It was here that I met Lester Aslarona. He was going around the convention taking photos of attendees sneakers because he was going to write an article about “Sneakers at Comic-Con” on his blog. He had asked to take a photo of my Nike Dunk High “?uestlove” sneakers, one thing led to another, and we became friends through sneakers. A couple of years went by and we kept in touch and it was not until recently that I proposed the idea of him becoming an Editor for Maihiro.
As he accepted the position, I have seen his dedication, hard work, and his support in my movement of “Design By Belief.” I appreciate his understanding, his motivation, and am very thankful to have him apart of this team.
With his help, Maihiro’s next chapter will make us better and stronger.
Welcome to Maihiro Lester!
