Sneakers!



When I want to have a little mindless fun I like to draw sneakers.... I don't know why. I think it's because each shoe has a personality it's own, and it's hard to draw a bad shoe. No matter how wonky it gets, it still manages to maintain a cool look. Anyways, these two pics are me messing around. I drew the one with "a million shoes" a while back and I thought I would bring it to some kind of resolve. I was going to color in each shoe with wild colorways but I lost patience..haha. The other one has me using some wax over my lines. I kind of like the look.

For those interested heres a huge Shaquille O'Neal size file of the first image. I'm also wrapping up two illos so I'll be sure to post those soon.

best,

That's what I'm talking about.

One thing though, I get the J's (I'm not a big J fan) but did you really have to throw in those sandals? Damn man.

I'll take one of those shoes and cram it where it doesn't feel so great if you don't get back to me! Good work though, as usual.

Peace
