Yep, this is going down in history as one of my strangest live gigs ever. Believe it or not…. I was recently hired by an agent to draw SHOES. I’ve drawn faces, all sides of figures, people as Simpsons characters, as Superheroes, as M&Ms, as Cars, as Animals, all sorts of things. But this was my first “from the knee down” gig.
Here I remembered to snap a picture of my “models” for you. Let me tell you, feet aren’t the easiest things to draw. Well, cartoony feet like I usually draw, aren’t hard. But pretty, even sexy feet… well, that’s not something a cartoonist who usually specializes in caricaturing faces is accustomed to drawing. I learned one thing for sure-don’t give a woman a “fat foot”!
Now by THIS time, I’d kinda figured out a “style” for the feet. Likeness, I learned, wasn’t important. Just drawing a sexy, elegant foot was. Oh, and the shoes had to be pretty exact! This particular pair was for sale for $1200!
