Illustration Friday - Homage



Once upon a time, long, long ago, there lived a princess who loved shoes. She had such a fabulous collection of footwear, it was legendary throughout the entire kingdom. There were sneakers, boots, sandals, slippers and clogs of all sorts, not to mention the pumps... high-heeled pumps of every color in the rainbow, and every variation of every color of the rainbow. All was peaceful and perfect in the kingdom - until one fateful day.

That was the dark day when, seemingly out of nowhere, the monster Arthur appeared. And, while the princess was away, slithered into her closet and made off with her treasured shoe collection, ruthlessly leaving only the less-than-beautiful orthopedic oxfords.

Drat you, Arthur Itis - you hateful stealer of fashionable footwear!

So, in homage to the princess' once glorious shoe collection, I submit the above rendering of a couple of old favorites.

love those lines in the socks :)
I used to be a shoe-fetichist but my feet don't put up with that kind of treatment anymore :(
