collage:  felt-tip, pencil, watercolour with a little fabric and paper.

i loved the colour palettes in this and the shoes are just plain amazing, with all those beautiful jewel colours i want to eat them.  plus i think the model freja beha erichsen is beautiful.

pencil, felt-tip, biro and tip-ex on paper

sadly the dress doesn’t show up as much as i’d like, as it’s in tip-ex and the texture doesn’t show up on the scan.

pencil, crayon and pastel

pencil, acrylic and pastel on paper

these shoes are made for making you smile. that’s why i bought them. also i consider them very sensible pregnancy shoes. damevivienne westwood teamed up with the ozzie melissa to make these winged platforms that would make mercury blush on mount olympus.

i’m adding a new pic today, i was not happy with the previous sketch.  it didn’t look right …should be more like the gingham lady… or this hot lady in her balenciaga top.  she’s much better i think?  can’t always get it right, but at least i can edit.

pencil and felt tip, some old felt tips.
