Sketching isn't only the reason I fell in love with art and design, it’s also the way most big projects start out. Drawing can be the beginning of a long journey to a completed, finished work. This series of shoe drawings captivates my enthusiasm for sneaker in simple, small scale sketches. I drew shoes that I like, and some that I’m proud to own. The drawings capture the simplicity in sneakers. I compare their casual beauty to simple pencil lines and texture.
