Thought I’d give y’all a break from the New York shit. Here’s some graf/shoe porn Toronto style in trade. Keep’er real.
It takes my breath away to see some of these ones, from the glam leading film lady stars of course, to know that they were truly worn in movies I’ve seen. I also have a Judy Garland thing.
Marilyn too obvs. Both girl’s lives ended in tragedy. Hmm. Liz Taylor didn’t exactly end harmoniously. Don’t speak ill of the dead though.
Shoes are such an intimate thing and yet so, seen. They tell stories about humanity, the time that we spent here on earth who we are and what we did and who we want to be. That’s what I think.
And some got a lotta stories to tell.
Shantell’s work is all over the front of the building of the Bata Shoe Museum right now. Looks tight.
One of the first pairs of sneakers there ever was. Tiny.
Converse galoshes from 1910 talk about diversifying your expertise yeah.
Lanvin. ‘Nough said.
What’s up Stewie.
See. Gots to go. Happy Thanksgiving Canada!
Love the graffiti pics. Speaking of Judy Garland love and shoes, did you know I once painted a pair of platform shoes especially designed for Judy by Salvatore Ferragamo? See: http://www.etsy.com/listing/35822470/platform-shoe-original-painting?ref=shop_home_active One of my faves.
I always loved that painting, didn’t know those were made specif for her!
Aw thanks! Yep, they were! And then Jeffrey Campbell knocked them off, and I bought the knock-offs, and then just recently I painted the knock-offs http://www.etsy.com/listing/165800130/rainbow-platform-shoe-with-stars?ref=shop_home_active The greeeeat circle of liiiiife.
Did you take Nina to the Bata Shoe museum?
