Although his designs grew increasingly demented towards the end of his life, corresponding with late-stage syphilis which he acquired from a prostitute in the dwarven quarter of the city of Remus, few will argue the groundbreaking nature of the work at the height of his mental powers.
Among the early work that hinted at things to come were the famed "Fruit Shoes" which were carefully grown to his specifications by legions of bemused gardeners. Heels derived from watermelon proved one of the most enduring designs, eventually developing both seedless and square-toed hybrids.
You know, these ideas always seem to happen in my parents' kitchen for some reason. As we all know, I never, ever promise a series, but I will say that I could see a coupla more shoes on the horizon. (Which is funny, 'cos I'd never wear heels like that...I'd break my ankles if I tried.)
Anyway, this is an 11 x 14 mixed media on gessoboard. The original is probably for sale, although I haven't quite decided yet, but prints are definitely available for $10 and $20 apiece, plus shipping--send a note or visit [link] for details!
