1950s sex symbol Marilyn Monroe's face is everywhere. Her red lips live on forever. Recently I got my hands on a pair of black Adidas Top Ten sneakers to paint. The outside of one shoe features a gray scale portrait of Marilyn's face painted with Jacquard Paints. Marilyn's bold red lips fit perfectly above her iconic signature. This is a one-of-one custom and will not be recreated. Check out the pics below and send me an email >>> HERE and let me know what iconic figure you want painted.

Last week I collaborated with a Call of Duty fan to make paint him some custom Jordans that looked like his favorite camo from the game Black Ops 3. I personally haven't played Call Of Duty in a long time, so I had to Google Image search what 'Dark Matter Camo' even is. Once I saw these guns, I was in love. There is a constant movement to the colors and a perfect balance between black and light colors. Although this Dark Matter Camo won't really keep you hidden, it has landed it's self as one of my favorite Camoflauge pattern's out there. Checkout this video below to watch me paint these from start to finish:

Friday night we had an Earth Day Celebration! Toms invited the B Street Team back to the Toms Flagship store in Venice to paint shoes. From 4-7pm we painted shoes for everyone who wanted some custom shoes. Of course because it was Earthday, we painted painted a lot of World Map Toms celebrating the beauty of the world. One of my favorite things about painting at the Flagship store is they have a coffee bar. Nina is the barista every time we show up and she makes the best lattes. Keep an eye on my Instagram @bstreetshoes for a post of when we will be there next.
These have been a fan favorite for a year now, and I still haven't written a blog post on them. I love the meaning behind the phrase "Not all those who wander are lost." To me it speaks to curiosity, travel, learning and judgement. This design was painted with an Indian Elephant head on the right shoe and the phrase on the left shoe. You can get your pair HERE.
