idealized vision

A pair of shoes with colorful interior

On the doormat rested this pair of shoes bathing in sunlight shining through the door glass.
What is the design intention for their colorful interior and bland exterior, maybe giving the wearer the internal confidence that she doesn’t have to show off to the outside world?

If you have attended SIGGRAPH this year, you probably have noticed this Corgi cam inside the experience hall of the Vancouver convention center.
I am not sure if there was a live video feed, whether someone was behind the camera, and what was the purpose of this whole setup (except for people to play with the dog), but below is my sketch of my (imaginary) mental image of the Corgi cam based on a reference photo.

A flower can last days, if not longer, by submerging its rear end in water.

This sketch was inspired by a face of similar style I saw today.

I don’t like this drawing as the contrasts on the puffs are not strong enough to convey their shapes, but here it is.

I also drew the wrinkled/folded shape of the bag.
