There was an old woman...

...who lived in a shoe

another sketch blog piece :) probably my favorite so far.

very much inspired by miyazaki, specifically Howl's Moving Castle.

The rest of the rhyme: 

"When she came back, 
They were a'lying dead,
She went to the wright,
To get them a coffin, 
When she came back, they were a'laying laughing 
She gaed up the stairs to ring the bell, 
But the bell-rope broke,
And down she fell!"

This is the kinda picture where I want to see a high-res version not because of the detail, but because of the details. I'm having fun looking around at all the little different things here and omg eye-strain. XD

Good job, there is one thing I've always wondered about this story. (Pause) where did that shoe come from and how does the owner feel about it?
AngryPotato's avatar
i think the old man built it for the old woman...and shes the owner now :)
