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 **
