got my boots tied tight

I haven't been able to get this song out of my head the last two days. For this reason it seems almost apropos that the first drawing exercise we assigned our design visualization class was feet. Only, unlike Billy Madison, few of the students were wearing boots...instead, lots and lots of flip flops.I've completed this same exercise a few times before with other classes and with better results. I think I was trying to draw too fast today. Maybe I need to remind myself that this isn't the Olympics and there is no gold medal for fastest drawer. Regardless...I think its pretty neat to see all these feet in one place.

Wow...those are wonderful! I think feet are one of the hardest things to draw well.

I like the quick sketches. I also like the more careful, nuanced ones. They're two different things entirely, it seems to me.

so im not a huge fan of feet... but i do love how you put this together! So fun!.
I also think one of these prints would make a very cool textile design. similar to those of merrimekko where they do those fabric art panels. again, so fun!

I bow down to you in your feet drawing prowess. I can't really draw very well at all and thus feet are completely beyond my reach. I love it!

Much luck with the rest of the year!

I love these. Love 'em, love 'em, love 'em. I'm gonna have to do this excercise one day. Another for the list! Great stuff.

Very nice, I might have to try an exercise like this... but drawing feet scares me as well as hands.
