22: Socks Make The Man
Ironically enough, this week's Illustration Friday topic duplicates the theme of the recently completed (and soon to be mailed) HOWieZine – black and white. Fortunately enough, I was then able to create one of the discarded ideas Kerry and I had for the zine, that of a formally dressed individual wearing white socks. Kerry works in the hub of Winnipeg, and on occasion has sighted the faux-pas businessman who dares challenge convention by matching up his three-piece suit with a pair of run-of-the-mill sport socks. These fashion victims are the inspiration behind this piece, built from an original sketch simplified in FreeHand and dressed up in Photoshop with a background of scanned newspaper stock reports.
Side note: In an unrelated matter, I'm stoked. Exactly three weeks from now – and for the first time – I'll be sleeping in my very own house. And I'm looking around and I realize… I've got a lot of sh*t to pack.
