The Foot Laments

I’ve been thinking I need to draw more feet. Using your own feet for reference is a little kinky (as in "inconvenient" kinky) and I haven’t yet felt like browsing any foot fetish sites for finding reference images. So I still need to practice drawing feet because I haven’t even started yet.

But the feet issue reminded me of an old comic I did roughly two and half years ago. It was originally published in "66°:25° #5". I wrote and drew the whole thing in couple of days of miraculous creative frenzy. That happens once in a blue moon and I’ve yet to witness another such occurrence. I really should draw more comics, but I seem to be overwhelmed by the effort to write a plot that I feel is worth drawing.

The comic was sort of a poke at all the whiny, autobiographical comics with people doing nothing but smoking, lying down and being all angst-ridden in their inner monologues.

    This is an amazing piece of work. Such drama with the only character a foot! I love it. I am feeling empathy for foot for christ sake.
    Very nicely done.

    Thanks, Dwayne!

    It was kind of weird and amusing experience to draw it – finding yourself making all kinds of sad facial expressions, relating to the character while you’re still just drawing a damn foot.
