Commissioned to design and paint artwork for a massive (easily size 22) Vans® shoe, live at the Vans® Hi-Standard Series 2014 event/Ontario.
During this event, Vans® gave out 10 blank pairs of shoes complete with coloured markers to contestants in the base lodge of Mt. St. Louis-Moonstone. Their task was to decorate these shoes however they saw fit, I was there as inspiration, drawing and painting on the massive model shoe. At the end of the event my shoe, now completed was awarded to one of the participants in a random draw. The lucky guy was super stoked (both he and his dad were extremely grateful people). Ten minutes after winning his prize shoe he posted it up on Instagram for all to see (photo attached).
Here’s the finished product at the end of the day.
• Spray paint
• India ink
After having my work published in the March 2012 issue of Chatelaine Magazine, I received a phone call from a client interested in having her old family furniture painted for her young daughter’s room. I jumped at the opportunity to paint these beautiful pieces.
An oldie but a goody, back from 2002.
My Father once told me that trends come and go, but good design will never go out of style.
