One of my favorite pieces has always been the illustrations of shoes by Andy Warhol when he was chief illustrator for I.Miller Shoes back in the mid-50's.
The work by noted shoe designer Mark Schwartz quickly reminded me of those exact pieces. The man is serious about shoe design and you really have to respect his dedication to the craft.
"My goal is to produce whimsical works of art, portraying shoes as more than an accessory. The shoes are stretched and exaggerated making them imperfect like life, and I twist these images into positions that seemingly dance off the page."
