Zombie stompers - SOLD

From nostalgic antique ducks to kickin' zombie stompers ; ) Starr (who is a fellow artist blogger and does really great work) sent me a picture of these awesome shoes - and SHE HAS A PAIR! How cool are they?! You really should check out her Victorian praying mantis. Anyway - I digress... but we share a love of quirky things and (I'm assuming here) Tim Burton. And she thought I might like to paint these. Okay - I thought the duck was challenging! lol

Oh, Wow! Fabulous! I believe you should just begin making up your own designs, and you may have another business before long!

Thanks - I wish I could say I thought up that witty title but that's what they're called! They are fun.

I saw the photo of these shoes and wondered how the heck you were going to capture the quirky, graphic thing they had going on. I needn't have worried! Nicely done! :)

Great painting and composition! Love the yellow background with the red line which adds to the funky feel of the scene and brings it together. Some crazy shoes for sure!

You nailed it! Hope it was as much fun to paint as they are to wear :) And thanks for the props... you rock.
