Mini update.

Currently I'm still working on the painting I showed a snippet of on Friday. I've been going back and forth playing around with the colors on Photoshop to see how they will look and putting paint on paper.
As of right now there are eight layers making miniature tweaks. Yes, eight. Photoshop is great/horrible for crazy people like me.

Here's how it's looking right now:

Sneak peek and a slight detour

Here's a little sneak peek of what I'm working on:

I also did these quick, random images so I could play around on Photoshop and Illustrator:

I quickly made the pattern, but when I looked at it, I kept thinking the shape kind of reminded me of something...

I figured it out, it reminds me of the Chao from Sonic.

... Okay so maybe you have to squint a little to see them, but that's what came to my mind.

It was kind of nice to make an image simply for the sake of playing around and 'loosening up.' Sometimes I think I get a little too tense and feel like everything should be serious business and have a point. Photoshop and Illustrator make for nice little diversions.

Hope you have a good weekend  :]

Material: Aoi Kotsuhiroi

Aoi Kotsuhiroi's heels are like the wilder, more painful and dangerous-looking version of the Day 2. I kind of love them.

I remember seeing these floating around on Tumblr a while back, but I was reminded (and actually given a source) by Haute Macabre.

Deandri - Helga
Jeffrey Campbell - Float
I liked when I saw the Simone Rocha pair of oxfords with a transparent heel, but I like the fact that a majority of this shoe is transparent, giving even more of the illusion you're, well, floating along on your tiptoes.

Jeffrey Campbell - Day 2
I really love the minimalistic design and the subtle twist of the curved heel. It reminds me of a fang and Mugler's heels. Unfortunately, this style didn't work for my foot so they had to go back  :[

Jeffrey Campbell x Solestruck - Taunt
I'd been a fan of the little detail of the heels from Burberry Prorsum's A/W 2011. Wedges feel like the most supportive 'type' of heel, but sometimes the shape ends up looking very solid and bulky. The tiny cutout detail for a mini heel within the platform breaks it up nicely.
And of course, I love the rounded studs. Being able to take off your shoes without stabbing your hand is always nice, since I'm the type of person who forgets they're wearing something that could double as a weapon and proceeds to hurt themself.

Lothian - Daisy

Dolce Vita - Vixen
Senso - Vega
Michael Antonio - Gallista
Jeffrey Campbell - Roque 2
Messeca - Coraline

All ten of these are available as a set here  :]

Music: Sea Oleena ♫

Sea Oleena aka Charlotte Loseth is a Montreal-based musician. Her 2011 album, Sleeplessness, was co-produced, mixed, and remastered by her brother Felix Green.
Charlotte's soft voice is multi-layered over gentle guitar chords and ethereal sounds. It's great for bringing a bit of surrealism into your busy schedule, or to simply relax and let your mind wander.

According to the description, "Sleeplessness is the three seasons' worth of endless nights and half-lived days."

She has released beautiful music videos for the song 'Milk' and 'Sister':

  1. Southbound
  2. Sleepless Fever
  3. Insomnia Plague
  4. Untitled
  5. Sister
  6. Milk
  7. Orion's Belt

You can listen to and purchase her albums here on her bandcamp for whatever amount you decide. Check out her self-titled album too!
