This summer I had the chance to illustrate another pair of custom Keds shoes! This time I worked with Chris from Vancouver; like the previous pair, the shoes were a gift from a thoughtful boyfriend to his girlfriend.
Lucky for me, Chris brought a really fun idea to the table! He wanted the shoes the feature the above kitty, which accompanies him and Kaylie on their travels and features in some of Chris’ photos of famous landmarks. I mocked up some ideas, ran them by Chris, and started pencilling in the design:
Kaylie’s a fan of wine, coffee, and music, so those elements became part of the design too. Chris was so kind as to take some awesome photos for me (you can certainly tell which one is mine). He’s a professional photographer, and you can check out his work here.
Another fun project I was sad to finish — but then it’s really exciting to send the shoes off their their new owner! If you want to jazz up your own Keds shoes, give me a shout.
