Warped Tour Shoes

.           In honor of this year’s Warped Tour, I have put together a compilation of shoes made for band members playing in this year’s tour, as well as shoes that are themed on other bands performing.

First, of course, Dangerkids:

.Tyler, the clean vocalist for DK, wanted a nine-tailed fox concept for his shoes. The idea is very near and dear to his art, so I knew that I had to try and make the shoes as perfect as possible. I usually love going crazy with different colors, but I’m really happy with how the black and white came out for this design; I think that it’s clean and simple, representing Tyler’s design without using even more than one color. I think they came out extremely well and Tyler loves them!

Andy, the unclean vocalist for DK, has shoes that feature a typography/emblem concept. I incorporated lyrics of theirs into the shoes’ emblem, as well as DK’s logo. The design features a black/white/blue color palate, which is the same palate incorporated into their album, Collapse. Enjoy, Andy!!

Katie, the drummer for DK, loves Vegas, so what’s better than a gambling themed shoe? I designed the shoe to have a tattoo-esque style to it in its’ colors and design. Katie also loves traveling, so I incorporated a globe as well! Also included into the shoe is Katie herself, including her ever famous wavy beach hair!

.Jake, the bassist for DK, has shoes that feature one of my favorite designs; his shoes feature a ship lost at sea, with deep teal water, and stormy grey skies. The shoes also feature DK’s lyrics. I just love how they turned out!

I haven’t made Dangerkids’ newest member, Alex, shoes yet, but those are soon to come, so don’t fret!!

Next on the list? The Story So Far:

I made these shoes for an amazing client named Donovan. I loved the concept he had and couldn’t wait to get started on the shoes. The colors all came together so well, especially the blues and reds of the flower on the right shoe. They came out better than I could have ever hoped and I can’t wait to make another pair of shoes for such a supportive client!

The Devil Wears Prada is up next:

Each of the members of TDWP received album-inspired shoes. Chris, the lead guitarist, has shoes that have the album artwork from “With Roots Above and Branches Below.” I absolutely LOVE how these shoes came out. The task was daunting, to say the least, but all the hard work definitely shows in the finished product. I love the shading of the sky and how the black tree POPS out of the pastel-colored background. Enjoy, Chris!

Jeremy, the rhythm guitarist, is the proud owner of these 8:18-themed shoes. These shoes were a huge challenge, with figuring out exactly JUST what shade of purple the background was, and making the shoe look distorted and worn. When I finally finished them, my boyfriend admitted that he didn’t think I would be able to make it look as much like the album as I had, and proceeded to tell me that I was magic! I hope Jeremy thinks so as well!

Daniel, the drummer of TDWP, got an “All Seeing Eye” themed pair of shoes. I found the design in one of their tour posters and I loved the hot pinks in the hand wounds, and the lilac of the skin. I love the black outline of the white TDWP logo, which makes the whole design come together. I’m really proud of how this pair turned out!

The bassist of the band, Andy, received a “Fallen Angel” themed pair of shoes. The other band members say that these are their favorite pair. I think that red of the clouds contrasts the bright teal of the sky so well and the embossed logo fades into the sky perfectly. I loved painting these and even though they were tedious to paint, they turned out awesome!

Last, but not least, Mike, the vocalist of TDWP received easily the most detailed pair of shoes I have ever painted. The Plagues-themed shoes came out BEAUTIFULLY. Mike, being a man of few words, said but two sentences to me, the first being “Thank you so much!” and the second being, “Why the hell would you do this to yourself?!” Why I did this to myself, I probably couldn’t explain, but the hours upon hours of shading and layers and splatter alone, and then the tedious outlining on top of that all paid off in the finished product.

Last, but certainly not least, are Chunk! No Captain Chunk! Themed Shoes! These shoes feature the album artwork from Chunk!’s 2010 album, Something For Nothing. I absolutely love these shoes. The sky blends from bright yellow into orange, hot pink, and then magenta. The moon pops right out of the bright background and black streaks, and the tentacles of the sea monster are a beautiful purple.

I loved making every pair of these shoes and I am so happy to be so involved in the music scene I love. These shoes are each their own, representing a specific personality. I hope all the owners love them as much as I do! Happy Warped Tour!!
