Ian let me sharpie and paint up his (formerly) all-white All-Stars!
I always seem to start off at a loss on crafts for other people so I started by re-creating a doodle I did on my old college shoes. The rest is heavily inspired by album art for Odessey and Oracle by The Zombies and The Virgin Suicides (score) by Air.
Here’s what the shoes looked like after outlining, before painting. I started out drawing on some long-locked ladies, flowers, and unicorns then filled in the rest with whatever. The fabric markers I tried using were way nasty so most of the color is acrylic paint. I forgot how much canvas could soak up, so the paint is a liiittle uneven. I made an effort to weather-proof ’em with Kiwi Fabric Protector but I’m not sure how well they’ll actually hold up in the rain. Fingers crossed!
Wow they’re awesome! Like a ’60s camper van, but with droids. Love it!
Yep, shoes for summer!
Wicked! I bet you there’s a market for that.
Thanks! I’d love to paint up a bunch and try selling some… one of these days.
Very well done! I’m an awful artist and admire anyone with such talent!
Thanks so much, Zoe!!
Oh wow, these are awesome! Tempted to buy me some white cons and decorate them as well. Perhaps if I ship them to you? You’re artwork is far more rocking than mine! :)
Thanks!! I’d never seen the all-white converse before- really perfect for filling up with color- send me a link if you make some! :)
Will definitely send over a link, I have not bought any cons in a while and may have to find a white pair soon!

Oh Wow! You should start selling something like this online. They look amazing.
Thank you so much! I would love to try opening a little online shop one day. :)
Love the pop of colour! :)
