whattttt!! too good to be true!! but NO it is true! a cute little girl (i think around 13 years old) drew a sketch of an octopus couple. she wanted her sketch to be turned into a pair of TOMS and HNC came through!! one of our artists recreated the octopus pair on a pair of ask grey TOMS pretty perfectly. so freaking cute!!
this pair of peace sign TOMS was ordered through email by a customer for her girlfriend "erica" and is the reason i require that all customers PREPAY!! for their custom TOMS orders. upon completion of this very specific order for handpainted TOMS, i could never reach the customer for payment and a shipping address. DUMB! now these TOMS is out at the store waiting for the just the right customer- basically an erica that wears a size 7.5 and wants black TOMS with white peace signs and her name in light blue. ah. they might be sitting a while, but at least we've stirred up lots of orders similar to this pair! and maybe, just maybe, the right girl will eventually come along and we'll have her perfect pair waiting for her!
another pair of somewhat striped TOMS. oh and this is an "oldie but goodie" from several months back. apparently i HAVE done stripes on TOMS before and had just forgotten. this is what happens when you paint TOMS day in and day out. without pictures i forget about past projects. thank goodness this style was documented!!
this is the first time i've ever done stripes on a pair of TOMS and luckily i was given pretty free reign. this customer simply requested using the pink and aqua colors and knew she wanted purple stripes all over. the result was better than she or i could have ever imagined!
