My mom painted these Converse Chucks in the Attic red-figure technique as a gift for my fiancée, the classics prof. Each of the four sides displays a different scene from a different Greek vase — that’s Odysseus bound to the mast in the foreground there. (If it were really in the red-figure style, of course, the red clay would be the only unpainted bits. But why be a noodge?)

Wow! Thats amazing!!
Good job on the detail, if it were for sale I would totally buy!
Older post, I know, but just found it. We actually sell ancient art and would LOVE to own several pairs of these. Would your mother be interested in doing more? I would be very interested in hiring her. If so, please email me directly >> Teresa Dodge, email@example.com. Thanks!
So great! What kind of paint or marker did she use? Now he just needs a pair of my socks to go with them: http://www.verdantgryphon.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=22&products_id=4697
