Dancing Shoes: Custom Paint

Jailbird Rock!

These I did for a friend who was just released from the slammer! He is near and dear and so I decided to do a comic-style short story with these and incorporate his life. The banner ended up reading "A Setback is a Set-up for a Comeback!" Very witty of him. There is a skateboard with hotrod flames flying through a lightning storm. A padlock freeing a laughing jailbird and a calavera. I am proud.

These I used the Molotow High Solid Markers I received from Art Primo. Check the video demo I did for them on their Youtube Channel;

Dancing Shoes: Custom Paint

Along with acrylic paint I applied with a paintbrush, I was able to get the details I needed. This was extremely fun and I had a good time doing this. Little egg was really interested in this project so I hope I can get her to make her own custom pair! How cool would that be?

Anyhoo, I am excited to give these to him for the holidays. I hope everyone has a safe one as well, cheers!

So fun! Photographer Mike Hipple and I are going to do a photo-shoot next year (ha, sounds so far away) with me in this awesome mask. Mike and his little assistant have been hard at work making this amazing piece that will fit over my head. I am going to be a cute animal! So silly and so fun! I really look forward to this project and the shots we come up with.
