I work outside a heck of a lot, and one of the things I always need (and always wear out) are rainboots! It's hard to find a pair that you can actually run in, so when I found a pair, I bought them... even if they're just plain grey. Just in case you're wondering, they're the Kamik brand, which are surprisingly snug, not boxy and floppy at all like most rainboots.

I had a silver DecoColor marker lying around... and approx 20 minutes later, here are the results.

Note: Not sure if this'll actually hold up in the rain or not, no promises. Could probably be done with a silver sharpie if I had one on hand. The silver color here is RIDICULOUSLY reflective - super eye-catching. I personally love it and think it'll be perfect for cutting through those foggy, gross days. Also, you can easily tell that I drew this without sketching and in a short amount of time, hahaha, no laughing at my wonky fish. =P
The lighter silver color is actually from the marker running out. Whoops! It worked out well for trying to fill in the shoal of fish, though.

Even though I live in Southern California, I'm a sucker for rainboots. These are awesome.

There is not a single wonky fish in the entire school of 'em that I see! What a brilliant way to jazz up something that is primarily utilitarian! No need to be boring!! Very cute!

I love the way you've got an entire shoal there, besides fish sometimes swim wonky when they're in a shoal.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Aw cuties! I actually like that your fishes aren't each painstakingly planned out, gives them character!
