Black + Grey print = Grrrr-oo-vy

This one's a late post but it's here finally none the least. This shoe customization was done for a guy ( well obviously as you'll see Anyway, my client didn't have a specific design request & so, left the concept in my trust (MUAHAHA :P). The grey & black was my client's choice..I added the brown to it. I wanted the print on the shoe to be "simple" enough so that it offers my client more freedom to mix & match his shoe with his wardrobe. I first came up with a sketch ( see above). I sent it to the client for approval & he approved the design but wanted it on a lace up canvas shoe instead....& the final touch? His name XD.

Check it out.

It's not the GSS, it's the JSS ( jessica's shoe sale) lol...

If you've read the previous post, you'd know I was away for a couple of months. I brought with me a blank pair of shoes to design while on vacation, hoping I'd be inspired by something. 2 months passed & still not a single stroke of paint on the shoe. Not till a couple of days before I was scheduled to return home -_-

For those who've been following my blog, remember the entry I did that was on a sketch of I did of the phrase " L'Arte Non e Mai finita solo Abbandonata" meaning "art is never finished, only abandoned". Based on that sketch, I transferred the phrase to wrap around the entire shoe. I figured if people would pay to have a tattoo of a name, phrase or whole paragraph of words on their limbs...why not on a shoe? LOL (if that makes any sense) So anyway, here's pics of the shoe at its various stages & 1 of a willing model XD Enjoy!

** NOTE: This shoe is up for sale. It's a euro size 39. Interested parties could mail me **

Admire me, then wear me?

I'm back after a good break away from all the concrete colored buildings with more designs. The "first" item I designed in awhile was this pair of pink flip flops for my bf's cousin " Stiene". I did it while I was on vacation ( yes yes, I brought a sketchbook & a case full of markers, pencils & what have yous). Concept wise, it was easy. "Something sweet, with vines & her name attached" would be good. I took care to keep it simple & & viola! The client was happy ( or so i hope) haha :P

Then a couple of weeks later ( I think. See, my memory sucks) while I was still in Belgium, I had an email asking if I still did flip flop designing. I actually faced out the flip flops because in my opinion, shoes offered much more freedom & design space to work with but still... I couldn't say no. Even more so because the request was to design 2 pairs of flip flops for 2 best friends & the girl wanted the 2 pairs to be linked to each other. <--The more challenge the more fun..LOL anyway, I started work on the pair asap & stuck to working with fluid lines.. here it goes: Pencil + paper--> fluid lines--> adding in their names--> lines & the shapes of the alphabets = something completely personal for the client & a dance of joy ( on my part) lol

Here are pics of the sketches I came up with which I then transferred to the flip flops after I got back to SG last month:

**A QUICK note to all reading: CMYS is stopping all flip flop productions as of this post but will be focusing on shoe, graphic designing & illustrations for print & web. For more info, do send me an email. Thanks for reading XD **
