Mockups shoes in SAM store

Last year my friend and amazing artist/activist/educator, Louie Gong invited me to test out a pair of his Mockups shoes, which were still in beta. He was in the process of making his website about these fun, customizable toys, and asked some artist friends to try out the samples, so that he could feature them on the site and test out different techniques. I got mine right before going to New York for a family visit so I photographed them in different places around New York and Brooklyn to get some inspiration. As it turns out, when I got them home, I ended up painting them with one of my underwater scenes, then spraying them with gloss varnish to make them shiny. Now they are on display at the Seattle Art Museum Store, next to the display of Mockups.
