If you are interested in purchasing some for the 2011 Homecoming season, leave me a message at the bottom of this post.
Here is how it works: You supply the overalls (to ensure fit, as teens can be picky)
We will meet and go over the details
Cost is $165 for the bib, and 2 other places (usually the right leg and buttocks area)
Deposit of 50% when the overalls change hands.
It takes 2 to 3 weeks to complete the overalls this time of year, what with my job and my own family. I want to ensure I have enough time to make sure your overalls are absolutely perfect!!!! UPDATE: I just updated my website to make it easier for you to secure your slot for the 2011 Homecoming season. Listed is a $25 non-refundable DEPOSIT that will be applied to the final purchase price of your artwork. That way you can secure your slot and then we can meet at your convenience!!

Hi!!! My painted (with Sharpie) Tom's have a little story.
My 9 year old daughter really wanted some Tom's for her 10th birthday, so my 18 yr old son got her a pair from his workplace, Sun & Ski Sports. He guesstimated the size and bought my size instead. LOL So instead of taking them back for a trade, I talked him into letting me keep them and he bought her another pair.
On Lindsey's birthday, we went shopping in the mall he works at and at lunchtime, we stopped in to see him. From out behind the counter he pulls out the COOLEST pair of Tom's (or any shoe, for that matter) One with a sun, the other painted with the moon. I had no idea....!!!
Turns out, the very day of her birthday, S & S had some starving artists there to paint Tom's (for a cost). Of course, since I am an artist, I had to go and investigate.... What mediums are they using? What designs are there? What is the inspiration? etc. I watched and learned and then asked the artist of Lindsey's shoes to sign his work on her shoes. He was pleased, as he had NEVER been asked before!!
When we got home, I immediatly had to Google "Hand Painted Tom's" and only found a handful of images.
That very night I started planning MY pair of custom Tom's.
I searched the house for every Sharpie marker I could find... my art stash, the kids rooms, my kitchen drawers. Then went to the craft store and bought a few more.
My pair Tom's took about 20 hours total to draw. I hope you like them. They are very "Me". Pictures, words, doodles.
I hope to create many, many more custom Tom's for as many people who will have me design them.
