Watermelon Heels by ursulav Watermelon Heels by ursulav
Xerxes Finchbones, greatest of the elven fashion designers, was famed for his revolutionary work in the field of grown, domesticated, and tame clothing. He believed that nature was the ultimate arbiter of fashion, something that elves have always espoused in theory, but have tended to fudge a bit in practice (nature is not very good at providing flowing, impeccably white robes for example.) Some of Finchbones' greatest works included the Trained Mouse Dress, the Live Dragon Handbag, and the interesting, if somewhat painful Jellyfish Brassiere.

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!
