I painted a pair of Vans for a very good friend of mine. He handed over the pair of shoes and essentially said “have at it”, which can be more difficult than someone telling you flat out what they want painted. For instance, if I’m really into unicorns and rainbows, and the person allowing me artistic freedom isn’t, that makes for an uncomfortable meeting to deliver the end product. Anyway, I tried to create something I haven’t seen yet done on a Vans shoe, but at the same time, be something that I would be proud to wear. Below is what I came up with.
Vans California, holla at me!
