Tangle Boots

Personal Project, 2016

Tangle boots is a series of four graphic illustrations inspired by the fashionable footwear of the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. The idea, if you can call it that, was resurrected from an old sketchbook scribble and developed into four distinct illustrations which retrospectively capture the mood and flavour of each decade.

Acting on a whim, with a good gut feeling that this doodle would make a strong graphical image. I extended the original idea to encompass a range of boot designs and different tangled patterns. Many of my sketchbook creations never see the light of day, but sometimes, something idly drawn years ago can initiate a new piece of work. Sketchbooks are very important.
