The Future - Shoes

Hi all. 
Hope you had a great day.

Today I designed these two shoes inspired by the mood board I did yesterday. 
When I did the top drawing I wasn't sure if I should keep the blue heel, plateau and collar or if I should use silver paint on top. So actually I made them both. 
But I think the one with the silver turned out the best so that's the one I posted. 
The shoe with the big collar is inspired by Dora Mojzes' dress

I think both of them turned out really well. 

What do you think? 

Well. I'll jump to bed now.

Hi everyone.
Hope you had a nice day.
I didn't sleep well last night because of my bag so I've been tired all day! 
Good thing I took a two hour nap earlier. Haha.

Before i went to bed I just wanted to share with you all the new mood board i just made.
I got inspired by the futuristic shoes i posted a couple of days ago so I wanted to explore the subject further.
I have the day off tomorrow so hopefully I will have the time to make a few drawings. 

What do you think? 

Sleep tight everyone!

Hope you all had a great weekend!
I had a good weekend except from the fact that I fell and hurt my back saturday.
So now it hurts everytime i breath. That sucks.

Well. These two drawings are also inspired by the mood board "Golden Fire". They have the same silhouette and round end heel as the McQueen shoes, but these are just a tad more futuristic I think. Mainly because of the crack of the heels and the "collar" that goes up on  the ankle.
The black one I did with a black pencil and then a black marker on top.
The shoe with the gold heel and plateau I first drawed with black and curry pencils and then I painted black and gold paint on top.

I really like how they turned out.
What do you think?

Golden Fire - Inspiration

Model: Abbey Lee, Shoes by Alexander McQueen, Painting: "Skriget" by Edward Munch

I tryed to make a mood poster the other day, and I think it actually went well. 
I get really inspired by McQueen and his wonderfully weird univers. I just love it. 
So here are two booties I painted after making this mood board.  

When I did these drawings I was inspired by the McQueen silhouette with the round end heels.
The top ankle boot is inspired by the fire and flames, the colours and the movements in the wind. 
The gold bootie is inspired by.. Well the gold McQueen shoes in the mood board. I did this drawing by a mix of a curry coloured pencil and finger painting with gold paint.

What do you think?

My Red Love

I'm gonna start with something pretty simple. Like this red pump. 
I really like the chunky black heel and the hidden plateau. 
I drawed it the 4th og Jan (2011). 
I think the hole reason why I drawed this red shoe was because I really need a red shoe! And as they say: "Necessity is the mother of invention".
And I mean, they are no where to be found in Denmark right now. I really think that's a shame, cause the red shoe is classic! 
Everybody should have a pair in their wardrobe. And I'm still looking for mine.

Do you like it? Tell me what you think.

Hi all.

So.. This is my first post on my new blog.

As described in the "About Me" section I'll use this blog to share my drawings and hopefully get your respons.
I'm really looking forward to this, it's something I've never done before.
I mean even my closest friends haven't seen most of my drawings, so I'm both nervous and ecxited.
Also I'll share other stuff that inspires me. Both fashion and arts.

Hope you'll help me getting better.

Have a nice day.
