Purple sneakers

English graphic artist Becky ‘Cozy’ Welton has produced a pair of very Purple sneakers for herself.
The sneakers are now on their way to New York for an audition for a Converse ad campaign. Yay!

Be sure to check out her other artwork, lots of it is Purple related, including the utterly hilarious Ritchie’s Quest comic strip.

Thanks to Andrey Gusenkov (deep-purple.ru) for the info.

    Aw, thanks for the share! My fiancé just let me know it was shared here. 🙂 I have a whole bunch of other arty stuff here on Facebook, quite a bit of Purple/Rainbow/Whitesnake etc lurking around on my page!:

    Thanks for sharing my work and supporting my shoes’ audition, haha. 🙂 I don’t update my deviantART account any more though so I’ve linked my Facebook art page through my name if anyone wants to check out my stuff!

    Glad to have an official and positive shout-out for Ritchie’s Quest too, it’s one of the silliest things I’ve drawn but it has a special place in my heart!

    You can’t buy them in any shop as they were a vanity project for my feet, haha… However, I do bespoke Converse for people so get in contact if you’d like a pair – any design, any band(s). 🙂 Just not the exact same layout as mine as I’d selfishly like to keep those to myself, haha.

    too bad about deviant art — i find it a lot easier to navigate around.

    Becky Welton says:

    Problem with deviantART is that it’s a great place to meet other artists… But not buyers! I have a wedding to save up for so it’s much easier selling portraits and shoes through a site nearly everyone uses.

    i see your point. but at least maintain some sort of “best of” portfolio there. it’s good to show to prospective customers in one place. as opposed to fb which has a stream on consciousness vibe to it.

    Nick Soveiko says:

    to add to my point: i’d have never found ritchie comic on fb.

    I never wear Convers but certainly would, if I could buy these in a store. Wow.

    If the Sneakers available, I want to buy a pair of them. Great with the classical DP-logo.:-)

    I want a pair … NOW !!! 😉

    Becky Welton says:

    Not really Nick, nobody has ever bought a single thing off me from deviantART, that’s why I set up a Facebook page in the first place all my sales have been through there. I arrange all my stuff in photo albums there rather than randomly and people have no trouble looking around, haha. The Ritchie’s Quest album is there!

    I’m also in the middle of setting up an official website, just want to make it look all nice and spiffy before unveiling it. 🙂

    I think Converse can seriously think to produce them. They are all 4 little masterpieces.
