The Creation of Spicoli
Alexis Winslow is an artist from Norman, Oklahoma who has her hands in just about every medium you can think of. She's making hand bags, painting, designing clothing...what ever she feels like trying out. I hate her. She's good at it all. About a year ago, a friend of hers asked her to design a pair of Vans for a charity art show called CANVAS. Not surprisingly, Alexis blended a couple of her talents on the project and ended up with "The Creation of Spicoli." It's a clever little tongue-in-cheek homage to Michelangelo's "The Creation of Adam."
(Sistine Chapel, bros. That's like "Art for $100" on Jeopardy.) It ain't just paint on these suckers, either. Nope. Homeslice be embroidering on these things!
HERE IS MORE of Alexis' work. Holler at this girl.
