Custom Culture Street Shoes by AudreyBenjaminsen Custom Culture Street Shoes by AudreyBenjaminsen
These are some shoes that I designed for a Vans Custom Culture competition. Some of my fellow classmates and I entered as a team ( this was my contribution to our "line" of shoes). They are supposed to represent balance needed for a country to function, and the balance you need to walk. I hope you like them, they were fun to do! (meduim: ballpoint pen, watercolor paint, colored pencils)

Sounds like these wouldn't hold up in the rain if anyone were to actually wear them. That's unfortunate. Awesome design though!

These are gorgeous! May I ask, how did you "seal" them (what product did you use) so they could be worn without the watercolor running if the shoes got a little wet..?
Reply
:iconaudreybenjaminsen:
AudreyBenjaminsen Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2012  Professional General Artist
Thank you! I didn't seal them XD haha they would get destroyed by water

AthenaTT Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2012
Oh! I thought everyone who made art on shoes sealed them from the elements (since they are shoes and all)
