Finally making use of Adobe Illustrator. So far so good!
One of my favorite projects. I did the original one over a weekend, after learning I was way behind on one of my class projects. For my portfolio class I added two more to make a set, with color and pattern variations.
Formosa was a vintage fashion line for the sake of the project, but for me its a reference to an aesthetic paradise where everyone dresses well. ( see the link on my homepage. )
I’m no fetishist, but as artist I’ve always had a fascination with these kind of boots. Its all in how they work with the natural S-curve of the leg, but at the same time give it that blocky, powerful, masculine quality. The shininess helps as well . . . Sharpie + whiteout marker
A sketch from awhile back of a stylized heraldic dolphin. You can probably see that it has more in common with the Dolphinfish, or Mahi-Mahi, than with the normal variety. Naturally, I love the serpentine shape.
