Custom-Painted Vans Start to Finish

April 7, 2010

Here’s a really entertaining process post from Illustrator Grant Gilliland in which you get a front seat to his approach to custom-painting a pair of Vans shoes.

I was surprised by how much fun I had reading this post.  Grant really lets his sense of humor shine through in his running commentary while showing photos of his unique work from start to finish.

It’s always enjoyable to watch an artist at work, especially on this type of hands-on project.

    Just curious, is there a specific type of paint or ink that is recommended for working with shoes and other similar fabrics? The last time I painted a pair, I painted them using diluted acrylic paint.
