In DIY DOC’S, we take a look at how illustrators, artists, and designers put their stamp on a Dr. Martens product. Painting, tattooing or de-constructing – we’re giving them the creative freedom to express themselves off of the canvas.
Meet Indi Maverick. We came across the Mexico City-based artist through Instagram and fell in love with her intricate illustrations of cute animals, delicate florals, and pop culture musings. We asked Indi to put her own unique twist on a pair of Doc’s and she chose the 1460s as her canvas. Keep reading to discover her inspirations, current projects, and what she loves about Mexico City.
How long have you been doing illustration?
I’ve been doing illustration for about five years.
Are there any artists that have influenced your work?
I have several favorite artists, but my inspiration has always been Andy Warhol. I like his early work as an editorial illustrator.
What inspired your designs for this project?
I love nature and the Green 1460s were the perfect choice to represent how beautiful and ephemeral nature can be.
What do you love most about living in Mexico City?
I love how supportive people are of art and how we can all be united for one cause. I love the city’s culture and its many flavors and colors.
Tell us about your first pair of Dr. Martens.
My first pair of Dr. Martens was a gift for my 26th birthday; they are very special to me.
Are you working on any exciting projects?
I’ve been working on embroidery for denim jackets. It’s just a concept right now but I really want to sell them like pieces of art.
Mexico City was recently impacted by a 7.1 magnitude earthquake. In an effort to help the city recover, Indi has been raising donations through her art. If you would like to contribute, visit her Instagram for the most up-to-date information.
