Even Artists Wear Shoes. by start-static Even Artists Wear Shoes. by start-static
UPDATE: If you're in Australia and you want a pair, check out my journal here: [link] for more info.

Alas, we are not exempt from this aspect of society and thus, extra precautions must be undertaken to ensure footwear meets our creative standards.

These shoes cost me $6 from Kmart and were plain white canvas hi-top takeoffs. I couldn't resist a blank canvas (as many of my fellow artists will appreciate) so I decided that they should become my new shoes.

Hence, 6 hours and a crap load of acrylic paint later - the shoesies are born.

The graffiti-style inners of each shoe say "Start / Today" when placed side by side (or worn whilst standing duck-footed) which was a tribute to my spontanaeity and regular impulsive behaviour.

The outers feature two characters, the one that looks like a chef's hat is featured in my other acrylic piece 'Acid Rain', and the teddy bear is a recent original from a comic I created for a friend's birthday.

As a funny note, I wore these on a school excursion to Sydney and have 8 people offer to buy them off me - with offers from $20 - $120... That was kinda cool considering they cost me $6 to make haha.

Anywho, enjoy them in all their glory.

Specs:
Time: around 6 hours (i was using the smallest painbrush available for the entireity of the shoe)
Materials: Canvas shoes, acrylic paint, an extremely fine paintbrush and scotchguard (for waterproofing afterwards)
