  1. Cheers all! Old thread was rightly locked due to age. Here's the best of what I've done since.
  2. Thank you!
  3. Recently learned of these and have really fallen for them. Maybe not $700 worth of falling, but still think they are lovely. The spare heel makes it look like a sketch of a heel, and I also like the juxtaposition of the steel and the leather. Does anyone own a pair? Are they a joy or pleasure-is-pain to wear? http://us.casadei.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-Casadei-US-Site/default/Product-Show?pid=6532N164%2eDN6T372O60&start=9&cgid=shoes-pumps
  4. If so, what are your impressions of quality, fit of their products and their service over all? http://www.fernandoberlinboots.com/en/ Thanks!
  5. I'd love to design shoes... not sure about how one starts that career at the tender age of 53!
  6. I know that some sites will let you customize your order. These are derived from some beautiful giuseppe zanotti two tone t-straps that are no longer available. 4-1/2" heel.
  7. Saw these in a Shoedazzle ad. Normally I'm all about the classic, sleek, and black, but these have a funky charm to them.
  8. The latest study—thinking of the oriental custom of foot binding (ick) and went to the ballet heel as a way to minimize the foot. Am starting to wrestle with the play of light on finish. Photography makes it look so easy!
  9. Got a Wacom tablet for Christmas, and have been learning how to draw... again. This is a study from a composite from three photos. The model is Tarja Turunen—formerly of Nightwise The boots are my own creation—going for a victorian feel with a little juice added.
  10. I'm an Illustrator and all-round image maker by trade. The thing I seem to working through includes heels, but it's much more about a complete femininity. Think Hollywood stars of the 30s and 40s and I'm trying to present that vibe in a current visual idiom.
  11. A holiday card. The shoes are Dolce & Gabanna pumps—love the heel. The woman is based of a photo of greta Garbo. The car is the equivalent of a 1930 bat mobile.
  12. I'm reminded of the scene in Wayne's World where they meet Alice Cooper" "WE ARE NOT WORTHY!" beautiful shots! Thank you.
  13. I've been away a while, so my old thread got locked. I sorta cycle in and out of projects like a comets orbit. Here's the last of my angel series, the theme being a "good death." The idea was one of comfort at the end of a well-lived life. Death is sometimes referred to the other side of the veil, so the angel is lifting the veil as the act of transitioning the soul. Pata was very gracious to me in encouraging my work, so all thanks to her! Next is a fashion image that was inspired by the Andy Warhol museum, although for the life of me I cannot remember how: And finally there is another fashion/fetishish portrait inspired by a number of sources. I don't often think of brown and black as a pleasant combination, but after some study I see it works pretty well.
  14. With encouragement from the wonderful Pata, I've drawn up another angel. The theme of this is the blessings of good dreams.
  15. For whatever reason, I keep getting file upload errors, so I linked to the image from elsewhere. This started from a 15-second idle doodle. I dressed up model Ulorin Vexin a 20s-themed dress and pumps that I designed as I went along.
