A Sloth that Rocks Vans

Tim Ham is a 22-year-old designer and illustrator (and coffee shop employee) from Tempe, Arizona. Why is his nom de guerre "Sloth?" He thinks people are too busy. Everyone needs to slow down and take a breath. Gaining most of his inspiration from street art (and his mom), he got cracking on his first pair of hand painted Vans when his girlfriend's sister asked him to make some shoes for her. By the way, Tim snagged his first pair of Vans when he was a little BMX racing 5-year-old.

See more of his illustrations at I AM SLOTH. Tim is currently working on his first line of tees so look out for those on his site. In the meantime, he'll keep working at the coffee shop and designing motocross graphics at THE DIRT LAB.
