A gift idea...

I had an idea to draw on some shoes for my friend's birthday. But then when I got the shoes, a fresh blank canvas I was a little nervous.

What if I  messed up? Would  I need to start all over? Maybe I should use pencil to drawn an outline first? 

I began mulling over reference photos and looking at objects: Flowers, guitars, people etc.

Ultimately I decided to eliminate color and go with a plain black pen (From Sharpies STAINED collection). When I took the color out of the equation and simplified the process I quelled my nervousness and just drew.

I drew quickly and in free form without thinking too much and enjoyed the outcome. 

Obviously there's always room for improvement but I am happy with the way they turned out and hope my friend enjoys them too :)
