Kandinsky Shoes


So I wanted to have a bit of fun with Artober Nashville: Kandinsky Inspired.  I was going to make a "vest" that was Kandinsky Inspired...but haven't finished it yet.  The shoes weren't even on the radar...until I found a $5 pair of canvas shoes that actually fit my big feet!!!!  So last night during the big storm that was rolling through....
I was watching the second Thor...and making these!!  

I tried to take images from different parts of Kandinsky's career to show the diversity of his work.  Some are pretty literal takes on his work...and some have been "modified".  

I used Crayola Fabric Markers, Sharpie Fabric Markers, and regular Sharpies. It needs heat set...which I'll do a combination of iron & drier.  Since I just made them...I'm not sure how long it will last...how much it will fade...or if it will bleed through onto my socks. 
 I'll keep ya posted on that!!!

If I get the vest done...I'll post some pictures!  


  1. I see you've been bit by the Cassie Stephen bug!

    1. I was Cassie before Cassie was cool! Haha! Kidding! I could have...Cassie is a friend and use to teach a couple miles from me!

  2. Your students are gonna LOVE these, Ted!!

  3. Did you wear your shoes at school! This could be a so cool project for kids! I think kids learn so much doing this kind of project because it's fun and unique. I hope that you will be able to do it. One thing for sure, you can inspire kids to do it!
