on occasion, i can become overly sentimental with material possessions. i had a particular pair of converse that held more than their fair share of nostalgia. when i did the sketch below [way back in jan 2009], i titled it “the shoes i got married in”

however, like most of my clothes, i wore them until they were dropping to pieces. but i eventually threw them out [in sept 2010] and by that point, the image had been given a completely new title…

“the shoes that outlived love”  [ps2, wacom. jan 2009]
