About

Hello, I'm Hippy of Doom. I'm currently an art student, and when I'm not busy with crazy assignments, I like to paint shoes.

► My Shoes

All the shoes I use are brand new shoes. Sometimes I use shoes that are made from leather, so make sure you read materials before buying (I always include).

All shoes are hand painted by me.

I state any noticeable faults with shoes, and I do not sell anything I would not be happy to wear myself (and I’m very fussy with shoes so that’s saying something!)

► Custom Shoe Orders

► Custom Shoe Orders

I am not currently taking custom orders on my shoes. However, when I do these will be the prices:

• Standard commission $100 – Includes the actual shoe and the customisation, but may take a few weeks to find the perfect shoe. Due to the time it takes, the Hokusai Wave design will be $120.

• Priority commission $150 – Again includes the actual shoe and customisation, but allows me to find suitably priced shoes more easily, meaning your shoe should be ready to post a lot quicker.

• Own shoe customisation $60 – You send me your shoes and I will paint your chosen design.

N.B. If you want customisation that is very specific e.g. names, initials, I might ask for payment upfront, as it is unlikely I would be able to resell should the commission fall through.

If you want a pair of customised shoes, send me a convo stating:
- the design you want (if you would like one of my previous designs also tell me if you want to make any changes to it)
- your shoe size – and whether that’s UK, US or EU.
- the type of shoe you would like including material, colour, heel height and style, toe style. Make sure to also tell me anything you absolutely DO NOT WANT as finding the exact shoe you want may be difficult and I would not want to get you something you cannot wear.

If you want a pair for someone's present or by a certain date, please contact me *at least* two weeks before they are needed, to make sure I can have them ready by then.

As I'm a student, I understand cashflow problems better than anyone, so I will always look for the most cost effective solutions to what you want and my prices are always open to negotiation.

► Prints

Prints are signed and dated by request. Prints are available in different sizes and formats and some available on postcards, mousemats and coasters. Just convo if you are interested.

► Commissioned Art

I accept art commissions. They will be priced on a case by case basis due to the variety of different media and styles. As a guideline, a photorealistic A5 graphite drawing on Bristol Board will cost $80

I'll try any technique/style, and the media I can work in are:
- graphite
- acrylic
- oil
- charcoal
- coloured pencil
- soft and oil pastels
- watercolour
- egg tempera
- Photoshop and other digital programs such as ArtRage and Facebook Graffiti

and surfaces I can work on are:
- bristol board
- silk
- agate
- canvas
- canvas board

► Shipping and Packaging

I try to recycle packaging supplies as much as possible, so please don't be alarmed if the packaging looks used before. If this is a major problem, please convo me before buying. All items are packaged so that they are safe and can withstand a lot before there is damage.

If the addresses on Etsy and Paypal are different, I ship to the Etsy address. Please make sure your Etsy address is correct.

Items are usually shipped the next working day, but depending on time differences it may be two working days.

If you would like quicker shipping, contact me for a quote.

► Exchanges and Refunds

Regarding shoes, I accept returns and exchanges and give refunds on the condition that the shoes are in the same condition as when I posted them and you notify me ASAP (no later than 5 days of receiving the item). I do not refund postage.
