Botanical Fantasy Footwear

"A shoe has so much more to offer than just to walk." —Christian Louboutin


A cobbler has tools to create a shoe; we have nature's botanical beauty to help create an illustration of the ultimate whimsical footwear! Imagine stretching your sensory vision to fashion a framework of Earth's bounty. You can add shoelace vines, chunky heels of moss and bark, and textural ornaments using fruits, vegetables, leaves and flowers. Embark on a historical journey about footwear: how early man’s crude coverings progressed to become a paramount fashion statement emphasizing exquisite style over comfort. First, we will create a mock-up using live botanical specimens arranged on a provided mannequin foot form. Your final three-dimensional botanical shoe will serve as a model to draw from. Your whimsical mixed media illustration will be the envy of many a shoe collector!

Prerequisite: Botanical Illustration in Colored Pencil II.
