This is talent with a pen which is way beyond my skill level.  They are fantastic.

Great work, man. They look very professional and in general pretty rad. I'd love to see more of your work.

Hands down, best painted/drawn shoes I've seen.  The level of detail is amazing.  Having done a pair of shoes with fabric markers I can't imagine how you were able to do that. 



It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

omg I am jealous of your feet.

I didn't even see the actual mention of Roy... I was looking at these and going "man this looks like a Lichtenstein!"  And it was.  Smiley  Good work!

Cheers guys!

In response to your questions:

They should withstand reasonably well to getting wet as I've ironed the canvas and sealed the ink in but I wouldn't recommend wearing them on a very wet day (which I wouldn't anyway because they're canvas and my feet would get wet). I can't tell you exactly, however, as I gave them away to a friend.

No, I didn't use a stencil, I just copied them freehand. It was easier than I expected, actually. And having fabric pens with fine nibs helped enormously.

I've got a few more pairs of canvas shoes (not exactly in the same style- these ones have rubber toe caps) that I want to decorate so if any of you lovely people have any ideas of designs/pieces of art/comic books I could draw on them, I would very much appreciate it.
