I've been into painting on shoes lately. Especially cheap $6 pairs from you-know-where. As canvases, they are probably not archival (especially when worn circling the bases on a muddy ballfield or circle-pitting in a beer-soaked basement) so I told my Mom to wear her old sneakers when doing those things. The Fleur-de-lis is common symbol of Louisville (my hometown) and St. Louis (my adopted hometown), both named after French kings.
Happy Birthday and Mother's Day, Mom! Love ya!
On the other foot, I've been obsessed with Madballs lately. They combine two of my favorite things: goofy, gross-out monster art and sports. Remember how much that stupid Madball football hurt if you caught that plastic nose-cone right in the chest?
