    Mom’s got mad skills…and a copy of The Killing Joke.

    Nice work.

    I remember early 90s when Converse came out with Batman and the Joker shoes. I had the Joker version, and it was all purple with his face on the ankles. I wish Converse would bring back those classic shoes.

      For what? Painting on their own damn shoes? They’re not selling them on the mass market.

        See, for example, here :

           Arguably that representation should have been licensed, it certainly saved the artist time coming up with their own mural/IP.

        • Ramone says:

          Uh, that’s a business, and the murals helped enhance the daycare’s aesthetic for BUSINESS purposes. This is some dude’s shoes. There are absolutely no legal ramifications here.

            As the MPAA/RIAA has proven time and time again, not being a business or being a private ‘dude’ has nothing to do with them suing you. 

            “There are absolutely no legal ramifications here.”

            Yes, there are. Stupid ones, but there are ones none the less.

        Modern IP law makes no distinction between the number, nor the  intent of the ‘infringer’.

    I wish she was my mom.

    I know this isn’t going to go over well but it seems to be newsworthy that a woman  who has a child can paint Batman images on Converse sneakers? Can we stop with the “mom”meme?
    She’d probably make a great tattoo artist. Mom-schmom!

      The story is from her son.  What’s he supposed to say?  A woman, whose relationship to me must remain secret, painted these.

      • rattypilgrim says:

         But does the headline (or whatever) have to read: “Mom…..”?

        • tré says:

           That’s a valid point. The point of the article is, after all, the shoes, and not the maker. Perhaps something like “Spot On DIY Batman Sneakers” (sneakers as opposed to Converse, because why give that sweatshop brand more publicity when it hasn’t earned it?).

      There’s a picture in that reddit thread of his tattoo.

      That’s what I don’t get: he’s not old enough to afford his own shoes, but old enough to get a tattoo?
