Human Shoes by The-Wizard-of-Art Human Shoes by The-Wizard-of-Art
I'm not sure where Rainbow Dash and Applejack found a couple pairs of Chuck Taylor All Stars, but it looks like they haven't the foggiest idea what they're for. Apparently that won't keep them from having fun with it.

Watercolor on Canson cold press paper. Painted in November/2012, so no, this is not an Equestria Girls joke. It hadn't even been announced yet.

Applejack's got the right idea turning them into a pair of bolas! :lol:

This is a great painting, but I just noticed that you said "but it looks like they haven't the foggiest idea what they're for" in the description.  I thought this was a reference to Fall Weather Friends as an obvious joke about horses playing "Horseshoe" with human shoes?

Well yes, that is the joke. But what I meant was they don't seem to realize that what they're playing with is footwear.

So, whenever I see a pair of those dangling over the power/ telephone lines in my neighborhood I'll know that AJ and RD have been in the area recently.

Hopefully Lyra won't see this. She would just loose it.
Great job though, really like AJ's posture and the motion on the shoes is very well done.

Well, that was a . . . thrilling read to be sure. Though, I'm not certain the Klauser Schuhe business has any ties to or influence over the Converse Shoe Company.:shrug: Thanks for the random wiki attack!

Hah, that's really neat. I love their expressions -- Dashie's probably more amused than anything else, while Applejack's caught somewhere between fierce determination and "what in tarnation?!".

Lol, in Fall Weather Friends I did wonder why they referred to the game as "horseshoes" instead of just "shoes."

Did you just steal :iconkp-shadowsquirrel:'s hands? It looks like one of his sketches.
ARE YOU A WIZARD?

Oh, you really are a wizard. Carry on.
Also, I think I don't get the joke you hid there.

No, I assure you Mr. Pawlinski still has his hands, though I will admit to being inspired by his style. And yes, of course I'm a wizard.
I wouldn't say the joke is hidden. I just took the human practice of playing horseshoes and reversed it. ;)
