Chuck Taylor (graphite on paper)

Another ancient relic my mother unearthed and photographed while cleaning out her closets during quarantine. I drew this one in my first high school art class, so I would have been around 14 or 15. This is a just a grainy cell phone photo, but IIRC the actual drawing is larger and fairly detailed (if you zoom in, you can see that there’s a fair amount of fine texture, including the weave on the laces).

At the time I drew this, the grunge movement was A Thing, and Chuck Taylors (a.k.a. Converse All Stars) were THE shoes you had to wear for the authentic grunge look. In high school, I owned exactly one pair of Chucks, which I dutifully wore until the canvas fell apart. (That’s when they became real grunge accessories.)

Actually, I wonder if I still have those old green Chucks stashed away somewhere… I definitely still have a couple of my ripped grunge flannels. That was the most comfortable fashion trend ever.

Here’s a little peek at a special pet portrait that I’m very honoured to be working on colouring today.

This is Maisie the black lab who sadly passed away yesterday.

She was a very special girl to her family and will be sorely missed.

Big love to you guys ❤️
