EDM # 1



EDM # 1 Draw a shoe

Just one challenge a week just isn't enough, so I decided to start from the very beginning as well! So here is my shoe. I realise I didn't chose the easiest shoe to draw, something with less shoe laces would have been a lot easier and quicker. But it turned out pretty good in the end, and I'm happy I stayed with it even though it was tricky. Good exercise!

On a different note, thank you so much for all of your kind comments! I am surprised and very touched, and it inspires me to keep going. I can't promise to keep up with all of your posts all the time, but I'll do my best.

Edit - put in a better photograph on jan 8, 2010.

  1. Lovely sketch! Definitely a good one I must say... and I am too a big fan of Converse's Chuck Taylor series. I don't think they are made to last forever, but the style will never die. ^^ Actually you know what, I'd take back the part where I said they are not made to last... where all my Nike and Adidas failed(stitching and foam padding after a long period without wearing them), Converse All Stars are the ones that will still be ready to serve ^^

  2. Thank you for your kind thoughts. My sister is out of surgery and though I can't speak to her yet, her husband says the doctor gave a very good report.

  5. Great shoe sketch! And I love your profile picture too, it's so good to see someone who wraps their baby on their back and blows bubbles just like I do! :)

  6. This is an excellent drawing! It has personality - this shoe, in the way it bends to one side, and the laces are loose. Nicely done!

    I should really be kicked out of EDM (no, I'm not serious - I want to stay!!) - can't remember the last time I did a challenge. I'm long overdue. Actually, I've totally internalized the spirit of the thing, drawing everyday things that matter to me!
