VANS | CUSTOM MADE RE-CAP

Now that I’m back home and missing Europe, the Vans Crew and all the great people that I met. I figured it would be a good time to post a re-cap of all the shoes I created while on tour. Each of these pairs of shoes took me about an hour to complete and I can’t event post every pair that I did because there would be too many!!!! VANS art machines. You will notice that the skull chief was a popular request, and I enjoyed each and every pair I created… But I must say that my favorite pair…

VANS | PARIS EVENT

The final Vans Custom Made + You tour event has taken place, and once again it was a screaming success! The people that come in get so excited about the idea and when they leave, it’s with something that they are instantly proud of.. The connection between our art, the Vans brand, and the people, extends beyond any language barriers and it’s been so rad to see the reactions of all the people. I would generally spend about an hour on each pair of shoes, and it’s been hard work to constantly produce quality art hour after hour, but these events…

VANS | BORDEAUX EVENT

By now the team of us are all getting used to travel, so getting up at 5am in Glasgow to fly to Bordeaux with a quick stop in Amsterdam was no big production. Upon our arrival to Bordeaux, we quickly realized how amazing the culture and cathedrals are here… It’s one thing to see them in photos, and a whole other thing to see it in person. All I can say is that something came over me when I walked up to this huge cathedral. It’s mesmerizingly perfect… Fast forward into the evening to a little night out with the…

VANS | GLASGOW EVENT

  We arrived yesterday to Glasgow and immediately enjoyed the elusive Scotland sunshine in some nice outdoor street side pubs. The architecture here is remarkable, and it’s hard not to walk around in the streets with your eyes up in the air the whole time. From what I’ve seen of the area, this city is very pretty. However we’ve mostly just seen the inside of the Vans store, and it’s ok with us.. Our work is our passion and the people of Glasgow and all the other tourists were very polite, and excited about what we were doing in the…

VANS | LONDON KICK-OFF EVENT

London day 3, our last day and first event. Coming into the day completely unaware of what to expect, I could not have prepared for what happened as the doors opened to the store. An almost immediate dash from curious crowds and people wanting to get their shoes done up. From that point on, at 11 am, I received my first custom request on a pair of grey classics… “Josephine, in graffiti”. Not a short name by any means, but it was a great kickoff to the day. From then on, my stack of shoes to paint built up to…

VANS | LONDON PRESS PARTY

Today was a walking tour of London and we saw all the same stuff the Griswalds saw. Big Ben, Parliament, Buckingham Palace, and gnarly cab drivers that will run you down with no hesitation, it was quite the family vacation. From there we dove into the kick off of the VANS tour which started with a press party with bogglers and magazine writers. I finally got to meet Erin James, who I have been working with since 2009 and ultimately who put on the whole Tour. While I’m not accustomed to being interviewed all that often, it was a blast…

LONDON | WE HAVE ARRIVED

Yesterday, after a long 8 hour flight to Amsterdam and a 1 hour flight to London we had arrived! Immediately followed by a nauseating cab ride that literally made my wife, Lindsey puke once we got to the hotel.. We were running off only about 2 hours sleep and we powered through the rest of the day. Ben and I went to the team kickoff dinner and met everyone else involved, including the other 3 artists, a professional photographer and a couple event planners. The other artists, Tim Robot is from Berlin, French is from London and Kevin Grey is…
