These are a custom pair I made for a friend of mine, based on Mac Miller’s album artwork for “Best Day Ever”. these are pretty simple, so I can add whatever else you’d like on them, so long as I have space. Not much else to say!
NOTE: THESE ARE INCOMPLETE. I still have not added all the colors I am planning to add. This is a work in progress and with update when they are finished.
Seeing as I am extremely exhausted and am currently having trouble finding my camera charger, I will do this the easy/lazy way(cell phone yaaay), and post real pictures up later…and I apologize for any inconvenience (:
I made these shoes for an art project. I had to pick two different artists, and do whatever I want with them. Recently, I have had this spontaneous obsession with Brandon Boyd(well, his art) and so decided to choose him as an artist(specifically his work for Hurley), and my second artist is Hokusai. I chose them because I love the way they paint waves, and decided I would love to make my own spin off of their work(which was the assignment; I’m not just copying these guys for the heck of it and claiming it as my own lol)
Aaaanywho; Originally, I was going to make two different pairs of shoes, one with each style of wave, butttt I got very bored in class, only had one pair, and was feeling rather creative, so I decided to make one pair with both types of waves and try to make them similar.
See Brandon’s work here.
See Hokusai’s work here.
Without the colors:
Side One(painting not done)
Next shoe(same pair) Side One(also not done)
Enjoy!! :D And let me know what you think?
I made these specifically for Alex Deleon from the Cab for his birthday. I stupidly forgot to take a picture of the second side of the second pair, and I greatly regret it, since he has them now. One tongue has the lyrics of One of Those Nights and the other, the lyrics of Vegas Skies. Everything on this pair is inspired by the Lady Luck EP(bottom right corner). Everything on them is drawn using sharpies.
Done best on converse.

This was my first design, made for the Jonas Brothers’ Burning Up Tour. The top pair is brand new, on the vans shoe, and the bottom pair are my personal converse, which I have worn to about 7 concerts. A little dirty and messy, but still fun. All of the designs are done in sharpie.
These are my newest pair. The left side of the shoe is the inverse of the right side. The two pictures above are the same pair, one is the inside and the other the outside. The pattern on the shoe is just a doodle I always draw; a bunch of little shapes. I can switch the color of the slime/background of the shoe(where there is no pattern) to whichever you’d like. The black is done in sharpie and the green is fabric markers.
This design goes best on converse.
These are my best sellers. I have sold several in both converse and vans style. It might be somewhat difficult to tell, but the colors flow in the order of red, orange, yellow, green, teal, blue, and purple. All done in sharpie.
I can do these on both the Converse type, and vans type. I can also change the color of the sky to whichever you’d like. Both the sky and buildings are done in sharpie, the silver details are dont in paint.
Excuse the bad condition of these…this is my pair and I wear them very often.
(The ones in the picture above are a different pair, painted and sprayed, made for a customer.)
