Beware the Platypirates and their tri-corner hats.

I haven't posted a project forever and ever, and so I finally knocked out one of those "since I'm making this for myself it will never be finished" ideas. Behold, the Sarah's Scribbles converse!





These doodles are all based off of original work by Sarah Andersen, creator of my absolute favorite webcomic Sarah's Scribbles.  If you haven't read it yet, you're in for a treat. Those who are familiar will recognize Sarah, her bunny, her cat, the angry uterus, the insecure introvert brain, and some others. I used regular ol' fabric paint for the back of each image, then micron pen for the black ink and sharpie for color. I got really annoyed with the sharpie because it ran with every kind of sealant I tried, so I gave up and painted clear nail polish *very carefully* over each image. Overall, I'm fairly happy with the result. Maybe someday there will be a comic con close by and I can show my shoes to the original Sarah!

Thanks for looking!
