Old Brown Shoes

Monday, April 04, 2005

4_04_a
I joined a Yahoo group called Everyday Matters Discussion Group. It’s a cyberspace drawing club based on Danny Gregory’s web log (blog) and book: Everyday Matters. The EDM group posts a drawing challenge weekly based on, you guessed it, everyday matters. I’m a little behind the pack (I think they’re on number nine), but I thought I would begin at the beginning and try to catch up.

The first challenge was shoes: I drew my old faithful Pumas. Perhaps you’ll notice, I don’t bother much with “everyday matters” such as doing and undoing my laces. It drives my poor husband crazy.

OK ... are you trying to show us all up with your athletic shoes? Not only good with the pencil but also a fitness phreak ... not fair :-)

Thanks for sharing and I look forward to see your responses to more of the EDM challenges. They are fun, aren't they.

Cheers

These are really impressive - they look so real. And the soft colours are beautiful. Inspiring.

Oooh, nice. :-) My hubby has the opposite problem to you, his shoelaces are always coming undone and he doesn't bother doing them up again. It drives me nuts!

We all have a thing about our sneakers. And your drawing is really good.
