Further evidence that women are obsessed with shoes

By skepticlawyer

I promise that this will be our last shoe post. Yes, really! DeusExMacintosh came up with the idea, which I then executed. She was unable to find suitable pictures on which to exercise her black belt in photoshop, you see, so I stepped in.

Why, you may wonder, do I not do this sort of thing more often? The answer is that while I can draw, I cannot draw and be funny at the same time. Someone else has to come up with the jokes. I also don’t draw very often — the last time I picked up a sketch block and drafting pencil was about five years ago — so when I do draw something, if I want it to be of decent standard it takes me about four hours to do. Real cartoonists, no doubt, could produce something like what I’ve done below in half an hour.

Apologies for the slight irregularities in the image: I did the cartoon on a sheet of A3, but my printer only scans A4 and smaller sizes, which meant DEM had to scan it in two halves and then remove significant differences in colouration and a large join mark down the middle in Photoshop.

    Really very good SL! Another light, under another bushel as far as your talents are concerned, imo.

    Thanks all; as I say, I can do the drawing (if I practice — go to life classes or something — I do get quicker), but I need someone else to come up with the gags.
