There was a time when Peter was sort of the underground sneaker decorator for our group of friends back in North Carolina. They would ask him to decorate their white Vans in his signature scribbly, graffiti type art. He loved doing it, and could quickly cover the entire surface of the shoe. I wish I still had some of those, not sure what happened to them all.
For some reason I suddenly remembered those the other day when we were back-to-school shoe shopping for Emma. I asked her if she wanted to decorate a pair of white sneakers herself and she was totally for it. I explained that she would need to do her very best drawing, not rush, and probably think about and practice it all before she started decorating the shoes. I showed her some of my favorite pairs so she could get an idea of what we were talking about.
She used Ugly Dolls as inspiration, I think she did a great job, although she's gaining her courage to do more to them. What's even cuter is how excited she is to show them off.
