It was a typical afternoon and I had just received an order for a pair of Henry Cavill, Superman themed Converse through my small business Creative Customs, where I paint and design Converse/Vans shoes. Up until this point there was nothing unusual about the order and as usual I continued on building a better idea of what the customers expectations and requirements were, to make sure I could meet and exceed those targets.
Rosa and I got talking and she informed me that she would be in attendance of the London premiere of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. As an avid Henry Cavill fan this filled me with excitement, she was also looking to meet with the Man of Steel himself and as I could see through her profile photo, she had in fact already had an encounter with Henry. The prospect that she will probably get to see Superman himself again and show him the custom shoes that I had designed was beyond intriguing.
Fortunately for me it was not only the Man of Steel who saw and signed my work, but the Dark Knight himself, Ben Affleck alongside Jesse Eisenberg, Hans Zimmer and Deborah Snyder too. A prospect I had never dreamed of, or ever imagined had came to life. Rosa sent over a few images of the night and I was overwhelmed with excitement and a sense of achievement to know that my work had been in the hands of A list celebrities who were currently depicting the characters I've loved for years on the big screen.
It's something I won't ever forget and it will be a proud moment of mine that I will tell my friends and family for years to come. Now to continue on with my pursuit of making Creative Customs bigger and better and getting my work out there for as many people to see. It still amazes me to think that this is my full time job and that I get to create wearable, one of a kind art for people all across the world.
I've had the pleasure of working on various different projects since I started Creative Customs and you can have a look at my behind the scenes work on Instagram. from the very beginning. It's great to see how far my work has progressed and to think of how much it will have grown in the years to come. I've had such a good time working on all of these orders and if you are interested in ordering your very own pair you can do so by using the link attached at the beginning of this article.
I ship all my work worldwide and I've been fortunate enough to have my work shipped to the following places: UK, Wales, Italy, Denmark, Finland, Hong Kong, Australia, Canada, Singapore and all over the United States of America.. I'm looking to get my work delivered to as many countries as possible and I feel I am off to a great start! All of the designs are sealed with a water repellent spray which makes water run off the canvas. This allows the designs to be worn in even rainy weather conditions and the design will not spoil.
Please feel free to take a look at a few recent works of mine and by all means, tag your friends and share to those who you think might be interested in seeing the work I do. I design shoes for all ages and to any size I can get my hands on, large or small. Make sure to message me if you have any questions you would like me to answer.
