Illustration Friday: Legendary


The idea of the woman who lived in the shoe is a legendary story and my submission for Illustration Friday's "Legendary " theme. This is how her shoe would look if it were plopped down in the San Fernando Valley. Possibly in a tract home setting with a spanish influence. It looks like it fit's right in!

Tracy said...

Pretty house/shoe! It fits perfectly in with the others. :)

Bella Sinclair said...

My, the lady is stylin'! Looks like she just went shoe shopping in Madrid. Neighborhoods would be so much more fun if you designed them.

enigma said...

great take on the theme, you've always found the right story for your houses. ^_^

Faruffa said...

I love this legend and love the way you illustrated it!

Edrian Thomidis said...

What a stylish home! Love how it stands out from the rest. I wonder what the neighbors think? Great work!

kj said...

i agree with bella. imagine if you and an architect/builder designed a whole neighborhood?

ooooooh! imagine!

isay said...

Eric Barclay said...

Wonderful colors-- I think it's the nicest house on the block! :-)

sophie philo said...

haha...i want to live in it! Then I could let it go with the dog, when it's raining....

Angela said...

Pretty pastel colors! I'm sure she could give the Octomom some tips!

Cathy said...

Beautiful - what I like is the way you have to do a double-take before you realise that the shoe house isn't the same as all the others! It's such a lovely, delicate piece - gorgeous!!

studio lolo said...

Do these shoes require a certain kind of "hose?"

:D

I love every single one of your houses!!

Indigene said...

Well, if the shoe was this stylish, who would mine living in it! It's great and one of my personal favorites!

yoon see said...

I would wish to stay in this cute shoe house but it's just alegendary only....never mind, just let my mind stray into this legendary for a couple of minutes for a ponder:)

NANCY LEFKO said...

the perfect house for this prompt....and beautifully rendered !!!!

Josh (musarter) said...

Great idea for "Legendary." This piece is rendered beautifully too. Very nice work.

Amy C said...

oh I am so glad you got around to doing this in color - its a really fun and beautiful piece.

Nancy Dorsner said...

too funny! i always wondered exactly how one could live in a shoe. At what point does it cease to be a shoe and become a shoe shaped house?

thanks for stopping by my blog, too!
