The Flats of Haruhi Chan

Hey, does everybody still remember when that crazy anime, The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi, hit the shelves and swept the nation?  Well, it may not be as popular now... but I still love that show.  Hence why I decided to make these flats for NDK! 

The art style is based off of the mini Youtube series of the show, not the original anime.  There's something really cute about the miniseries - or maybe I just like Haruhi based spinoffs a lot.  But it's a great little show with hilarious humor.  And of course, that 10 second intro is the best intro ever.

I based all the art on these shoes from the first episode, where Kyon tries to sleep and Haruhi dressed in a dog suit tries to help by having the Mikuru sheep be counted.  So here, Haruhi is dressed as a dog...

And here, you can see several Mikuru sheep on the sides of the shoes.  Because Mikuru as a sheep is adorable and we need to have her play the fanservice role without being sexy sometimes.  Here's a closeup.

These are in a women's size 6.  They didn't sell, so they will be sold here!  Send an email if you are interested in purchasing them - they will be $25 plus shipping.

Where's Perry?

Those of you at NDK today may have noticed a very familiar green platypus / secret agent at the Artist's Alley... Perry the Platypus from Phineas and Ferb!

Great show - it's got great characters, great stuff for the parents and the kids, and an excellent humor.  I've had my laugh out loud moments watching this show.  Favorite character of all time?  Hm... probably Candace.  She's funny in the way that you know she will fail every time to catch the two main characters.  Well, maybe "fail" is a harsh word, but her success rate is pretty low...

I went for a simple design here similar to the Pedobear shoes - Perry has a very simplified, yet distinct face, so I wanted to keep that immediacy in the shoes.  You can pretty much tell from a while away that is is Perry the Platypus and Agent P at work.  I'm sure kids will love it!

In a size 8 if you were wondering.
