Sneakers del Arte, Shoes for charity

The Ellen Hermanson Cancer Foundation asked me to create an invitation for their charity event “Sneakers del Arte“, held in Southhampton, NY. More than 70 artists and celebrities were provided with blank sneakers to serve as a blank canvas, from which one one-of-a kind shoes would be created to be auctioned for the cause. The event was a big success and it was an honor to be a part of it.

Keeping with the theme, I painted and bejeweled pair of sneakers to be used on the front of the invitations. The idea was to get everyone excited about the event and the creative possibilities while still allowing others to imagine their own shoes.  In addition to being really fun to make, these cover shoes were also auctioned and brought in $900 for the foundation.
