Illustration Friday – Clumsy

One of my goals is to take part in Illustration Friday.

So here is my first submission.  A rough of an idea with a “clumsy” twist.  When I slip, fall or do something clumsy, observers react with concern, or hysterics and I am always embarrassed first, before I check to see if I’m even hurt.

Sharpie Art on Converse AllStars for Renee

There is something about art on your feet.  I love these and making these are a blast.  I received a request for custom sharpie art on Chuck Taylor AllStars.  I’ve posted finished art before, but here is a progression if you’re interested.

They're here!!

A list of all of her favorite things.

The blank canvas and a basket of juicy Sharpies.

Committed now!!

Sharpies and coffee.

Too bad the tongues get laced up.

Wings on her heels.

Sharpies over a dirty vokda martini.

More Sharpies and more coffee.

Sharpies over Diet Pepsi. Are these all the same note?

Sharpies over Newcastle Brown Ale.

That is a really good beer. Oh yeah, Renee likes stamps and her initials. So I combined them.

Have you tried Plungerhead Old Vine Zinfandel from Lodi? Oh, yeah hearts, clock parts and guitars.

Tah Dah!!

Good bye Converse Chuck Taylor AllStars.  May you live a full existence with Renee’s favorite things covered in Sharpie ink.  Pheww, I need another cup of coffee. 

Safe and sound on their intended gallery.

Oh, and these are going on Facebook Project 50/1.
