For the love of the flats!

Spent an entire day last week drawing shoes (which I can attest is an absolutely fine way to spend ones day). Will the simple pointed flat ever go out of style? I'm not sure it's possible. They are capable of elongating the leg in such a wonderful way (especially when the toe cleavage is just right), that I think they will always look very smart on most women. Particularly so, when they are adorned with an exciting amount of black dots of varying sizes that don't exactly make sense-(but then again aren't completely illogical either). As they say- "A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men." Roald Dahl -J.W.

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication

There's something about a simple drawing that gets me every time. That's why I like to draw quickly and on the go. When all I've got is a Micron and 15 minutes-I've got to eliminate anything extraneous and get down to the basics.

When one simple, beautiful line can convey so much emotion-you know you're onto something good.
