Poodle Skirt Shoe

"You're old enough to be my-----."


I suppose I should have been grateful that she stopped herself before defining just how ancient she imagined I was. Of course I was old enough to be her "-----", but it's not the sort of thing a guy likes to hear.


I felt like I'd been kicked with a steel-toed pump.

Every shoe tells a story — This piece was started for "Dog + Pony Show" with Northern Ohio Illustrators Society, but put aside for whatever reason and finished several years later to fill out a gallery show I was doing in New Orleans. It was pulled back to life from what I like to call my UFO stash: Un-Finished Objects.
