I was contacted by a customer from my home town to work on two pairs of shoes for her son and daughter. Her daughter, I was told is very into peace signs, tie-dye, and essentially everything hippie colored. I figured what says hippie more than an old Volkswagen Bus panted with rainbows, and flowers. So I began my journey to transform a pair of Nike Dunk Hi sneakers into a VW Bus. This process was very different from the way I usually plan my customs. My designs are usually meticulously planned out before they are applied to a shoe, but this time (in an attempt to keep the hippie vibe alive) I simply went for it. As always this custom was done 100% freehand, and I am very happy with the results.
Last night, since I am back home for a couple weeks of summer time, I was invited out to the customers house to deliver the early birthday presents in person. Everyone was pleased with the shoes, which as you know is the only thing that really matters. :)
