Jamaal Eversley '10

Jamaal Eversley emails, “I was honored to paint a pair of Sperry shoes for Rick Blackshaw ’85, president of Sperry. Rick saw me on the cover of Babson Magazine’s spring 2015 issue and really dug my style. I had seen the magazine article (winter 2015) about him and dug his style, too. After connecting, he sent me a pair of Sperrys to wear and a second pair to paint for him. Since then I’ve been on Sperry’s social media, sharing my story on love, shoes, and art. I am shown in Boston next to my nerdy Artbox, a utility box I painted on behalf of the Boston Art Commission.”
