I dig R. Crumb…and Vans…and now for the cream filling…
I subscribe to a big stack of magazines…mostly fashion and culture, its part of the job and all (insert write off here) and have a bog old table full in the studio. Admittedly I am a bit behind on my reading this month and have been catching up this week and kicking myself for missing out on a few fnatastic things. I actual had a near panic attack a few minutes ago resulting in a mad dash for my computer and an immediate Sierra-style google search (I am the google master and am known for my blackberry googleing skills while out and about). By golly I did it though, and very shortly I will own one these (with free shipping!):
I have been wearing black Old Skool Vans FOREVER and have been wanting a pair of slip ons but couldn’t figure out which ones I wanted…and then I saw them in the November Juxtapose magazine…what happens when you combine Robert Crumbs Fritz The Cat and Vans? Perfection…thats what happens. Did I mention that I used to doodle Fritz the Cat all the time in college? I even have the exact drawing from the shoes in a sketch book…this is so meant to be.
These are so f-ing Rad yo*. ok, its time to calm down now.
*if you know me well, you’ll know what an incredible compliment that is.
