Boots, not made for walkin'

The other day we were doing on a project for Skechers at work. I was doing some really fun illustrations (fun to me, they didn't end up picking them. They did pick others of mine but not my funky line drawings, oh well, win some lose some as they say) of shoes and feet and I got thinking that it would be REALLY fun to draw some books in in this style. I found a great pair of boots and started the illo, then realized that Skechers doesn't make boots like these. Doh! BUT I loved this pic so finished it over the last couple days here and there. I think they are really fun, but not as the old song goes "made for walkin." They are made for standing and looking pretty. I created a new pattern for the background and I think it's fun and adds a new dimension. It's fun to think of ways to fill empty space sometimes. In a way that doesn't detract from the subject that is. So, anyway, happy January 18 everyone. Take care and I'm off to breakfast.

Well, maybe Sketchers should make some boots like those!?! =)

I think that is a splendid idea! Maybe I SHOULD have turned in this drawing after all. Doh! :)
