Doodling at Selfridges...

Just started a bit on my sketchbook but I ended up doodling onto my front cover.

Now I've got to really start drawing proper shoes...

V&A Sketch and 'My New Bomb'

Yesterday, I went to the Victoria and Albert museum to see the exhibition containing Yohji Yamamoto's work.

Obviously, one would know at exhibitions like this, photography is forbidden. The next thing to do is sketch which is usually alright...not for this exhibition!

Here below are the fast sketches I did before I was 'caught'...and yes...very crude lines!

After looking at the series of videos of the fashion show and the display of garments, I bought the book, 'My New Bomb' by Yohji Yamamoto.

I would recommend this exhibition to anyone who is a Yohji or fashion fan. In addition, if one is conceptual with designs, there are three books to browse describing his inner thoughts which were interesting. Don't expect sketchbooks.

The pump (almost completed)

Even though the project's completed, I'm still not satisfied with the results.

Sign, move onto the next project and no more dwelling about it.

Meantime, two angles of the pump with cleaning up to do.

The photo of the cleaned up and completed version will be next time (hopefully).

"Making the simple exciting?" Ballet Pumps for Drapers

This is one of the times where I would confess...I am stuck...

Literately, I am stuck with my design. I have come up with a form. The criteria of this project is to come up with some ballet pump designs; something exciting, yet easy to manufacture and marketable...

So far, this is what I have as the final form (with a quick (and rather crude) sketch).

Of course, this isn't the work I am most proud of (actually hated it at some stage)... Hopefully, with little more stitch details and other enhancements, I will be at least satisfied...
