EDM #1 - A Shoe (Amy, Amy, Amy by Amy Winehouse)

I won´t be blogging the next few days either. I´m currently sketching EDM #1 - Draw a shoe. It is not ready yet, so I´ll post only part of the whole pic. In fact, when I´ll post the whole sketch, you´ll have a better idea why I didn´t have the time to blog the past days. A little clue: I spent some time at the place where I bought this shoe. (Actually I thought that I would need some practice to be able to walk in them. But in fact it´s not very difficult.)
Due to several requests ;), I have posted a pic of the real shoes at flickr.


EDM #1 - A Shoe

Talking about
shoes, heels and "walking past his desk in heels": Here´s another great song (from the first album) by Amy Winehouse. Please listen to it.



Amy, Amy, Amy
b
y Amy Winehouse

Attract me
'til it hurts to concentrate
Distract me
stops me doing work I hate

and just to show him how it feels
I walk past his desk in heels
one leg resting on a chair
from the side he pulls my hair

(Amy Amy Amy)
Although I've been here before
(Amy Amy Amy)
He's just too hard to ignore
Masculine you spin a spell
I think you'd wear me well
(Amy Amy Amy)
Where's my moral parallel?

It takes me
half an hour to write a verse
He makes me
imagine it from bad to worse

My weakness for the other sex
every time his shoulders flex
way the shirt hangs off his back
my train of thought spins right off track

(Amy Amy Amy)
Although I've been here before
(Amy Amy Amy)
He's just too hard to ignore
Masculine he spins a spell
I think he'd wear me well
(Amy Amy Amy)
so where's my moral parallel?

His own style
right down to his Diesel jeans
Immobile
I can't think by any means

Underwear peeks out the top
I'll let you know when you should stop
from the picture my mind drew
I know I'd look good on you

(Amy Amy Amy)
Although I've been here before
(Amy Amy Amy)
You're just too hard to ignore
Masculine you spin a spell
I think you'd wear me well
(Amy Amy Amy)
so where's my moral parallel?

Creative energy abused
all my lyrics go unused

but when I clock black hair, blue eyes
a teardrop I fantasise

(Amy Amy Amy)
(Amy Amy Amy)
Although I've been here before
(Amy Amy Amy)
He's just too hard to ignore
Masculine he spins a spell
I think he'd wear me well
(Amy Amy Amy)
so where's my moral parallel?

(Amy Amy Amy)
(Amy Amy Amy)
Although I've been here before
(Amy Amy Amy)
He's just too hard to ignore
Masculine he spins a spell
I think he'd wear me well
(Amy Amy Amy)
so where's my moral parallel?

Want to tell me something about your weaknesses?

This is a wonderful shoe! The texture really adds something extra.

i should have posted a pic of the real shoe while wearing them. ;) they really accent the legs, calves and ankles.

This drawing is great! I saw it on the Flickr EDM group, and then followed the link to your blog. It would indeed be fun to see a picture of the real thing. How high are those heels? They look at least 4"!

Hi kathleen, well, they are 12 cm which is almost 5". Wow! I guess they are my highest shoes. You are already the second one asking for a pic of the shoes. I´m off to take a pic. ;)

I posted the pic of my shoes - me wearing them (as I had a request for that too. lol) at flickr.

Great drawing! But how on earth do you stay "up there"? You have all my admiration, for the great drawing as always and now also for your courage in life!
