Life in the Midst of Shoes

 

Sometimes; in the middle of our work, life provides a moment of absolute awe and joy. Welcome to our family Evin!

Intro to Dream

When I started working at Dragon’s Lair years ago they suggested that I start reading some other comics. Star Wars Legacy was my only comic at that time (it’s a considerably longer list now) and I asked for some suggestions. They asked what I like…. I said No capes! (I like my capes on the big screen.)They gave me The Sandman Vol 1: Preludes & Nocturnes by Neil Gaiman. I had already loved Gaiman from The Mirrormask; so I was totally game!Mirrormask Fanart by Chocolatita

I fell madly and deeply in love with The Endless; the dysfunctional siblings Destiny, Destruction, Death, Dream, Desire, Delirium, and Despair. I devoured that first volume and every one after it. Someday I’ll have that lovely Absolute set! The Endless by Frizelle

What I really love is all the varied mythos wrapped into the story. Cain and Abel, Lucifer and the other angels, Shakespeare and the Fey. All these wound into our universal consciousness via our Dreams. I can’t begin to tell you how honored I am to have a Sandman shoe! Thank you Crystal!

Thundercats Revealed

Dearest loyal fans… I finally give to you Thundercats!

There is a disclaimer… At this point men’s shoes are for art only and not for wearing! I have yet to find a men’s shoe that is stiff enough to take the process and still be worn. If you want men’s shoes for display only; I’m more than happy to make them. If you want men’s shoes for wearing; I am still working on finding the right shoe for my work.

Now….

Look at Lion-O and Pantro! They made these toes look great!

 

IMG_0741[1] This actually lined up in a cool way! Lion-O is on the toe, a totally separate image of the Sword of Omens is on the side toe, and pointing at Mumm-Ra! I didn’t plan that!

IMG_0740[1] Many images had to be built due to the size of the shoe (15)! Thundercats logo (above) and the signature call to battle, the faces, and the Thunderkittens (below) were all built by me.

Wily-Kit and Wily-Kat just had to make it on to the shoe!

IMG_0742[1]  What are our cats without the villains?! Mumm-Ra had a feature spot, but I had to include Slithe, Monkian, and Vultureman (not visible).

I do hope y’all enjoy the Thundercats as much as I do! I loved them as a child and I’m so appreciative of Lisa for having me put them on a shoe for her man!
