blue monday : brown suede shoes

So much for never drawing leopard print again!


Hope your week is starting off well. I'm afraid I'm having "a case of the Mondays" that started on Sunday afternoon. Don't you hate when that happens?

wow...amazing job! As they appeared on the screen, I thought it was a photo. What did you use to color them in?

Thanks Lesley-
This is a combination of marker (chartpak AD) and colored pencil. I'm a little disappointed with how the colored pencil scanned...but I'll chalk that up to a learning experience.

Who'd have thought colored pencil doesn't scan in well?

Hope you get over your case of the Mondays soon!

How do you manage to be so prolific at the same time as doing such a great job? - every one's a winner!

I thought they were a photo when your blog first loaded on my screen. Pretty cool!

Hahaha! About the leopard print: just tried to draw it today (on someone's shirt) but it didn't work too well.
Love the shoes. Delightfully wonky here.

Beautifully executed, I love these!

I appreciate this post..I'm a middle school art teacher and I'm having my students draw shoes or clothing. I'm showing this example to them,(as a good example) and a comforting one, as they are having shoe problems too :)
