Faded



This week's Illustration Friday prompt is "faded".  When I saw it, I sat here at my desk pondering what to make of it.  I looked over and saw my little note card I keep, my to-do list for the day.  One of the items is "Wolfgang shoes" as he mentioned that he needs some.





Ya think?

I love what you've created. I am hopeless at throwing out favourite shoes and will wear them till their dying days.

Nah. They're good for another year (or at least Run With Lumber). Converse All Stars?

There's something comforting about seeing an old pair of shoes. Maybe it's because they've obviously been well loved. My question is, will Wolfgang actually throw those away after he gets a new pair? I have to sneak my boys' old ones into the dumpster while they are at school... They hate to part with their favorite things. :)

I hear ya, that's what I have to do too - throw the old stuff out on the sneak.

All Star original classic flavor!

Thanks Claire. It is tough sometimes, but I believe in shoe euthanasia.

You come up with the most original art for these prompts! I love how, in the second picture, one shoe is literally fading out!

This is great. Old shoes are such a good drawing subject, you get their beauty without their odour. Beautiful drawing.

LOL. I thought the same thing. What a beautiful drawing. I'll bet they smell.

Really nice drawing!

Abby said...

Thanks Scott, I'm glad you noticed that fading out in the smaller image. That's the effect I was going for :)

Abby said...

Thanks, they were a fun subject. I admit that I used a photo - for obvious reasons!

Did a dog bite one of the shoes?

Does Wolfgang help with outside work? I used to have my son throw out the oldest pair, use the current ones for outside work, and then he got a new pair for school etc.

I bought new shoes yesterday so I'm inclined to say "Yes" to Wolfgang.
