MT's Désirée Kelly teams up with Converse and the Detroit Bus Company


We have to give a shout-out to our production manager Désirée Kelly for lending her artistic skills in painting this bus for Andy Didorosi and the Detroit Bus Company. The bus was painted as part of a larger initiative sponsored by Converse called "Sneaker Clash," which has artists painting brightly-colored murals in cities all over the world. This particular bus will be used to transport kids in Detroit to and from after-school programs — safely and stylishly. Sure beats the boring old yellow buses we had as kids.

Nice work, Désirée!
