I love this little book, and have for a long time! I have a friend who painted a pair of TOMS with Where the Wild Things Are creatures, and then another pair of shoes with The Giving Tree on them. I was inspired to create something, and after some brain searching decided to go with Harold and the Purple Crayon. Off I went to Target to find some cheap knock-off Toms to try before I shelled out the big bucks, and came home with some even cheaper knock-off Keds. Then I thought that I would be satisfied with just sketching it out today, and then finding paint to do the rest later, but the creative juices were flowing, so I grabbed a purple pen and went to town on my $12 shoes. This is pictures of the work in progress, and then the finished product (for now at least!) Wink
