Shoe celebration

While most of us were kicking back over the weekend, Agency Rush illustrator Billie Jean was working hard on a commission for the Glasgow branch of shoe retailer Schuh.

Schuh tasked the London-based illustrator with creating a live drawing installation on the theme of self-expression to mark the retailer’s 30th anniversary.

For the mural, Billie Jean created a giant cartoon shoe, populated with a motley crew of monsters and influential cultural figures. Luckily for Billie Jean and the live draw’s spectators, the Glasgow weather held up and the mural’s smiling toenails were completed. Here’s some images of the completed mural.

    Lucky Glasgow! Are Schuh going to get Billie J to paint any of their windows in London or near to?
    If he is can you let us know of the dates.
