I have done a lot of technical art in many genres over the years. In automotive, Biology / sciences
, electrical and infrastructure, procedural, and assembly. That said the example above was off the beaten path. Doing a cut away on a high
heel shoe with a proprietary insert is out there. Still I had seen tennis shoe cut away art and back packs - so what the heck.
As a tie in: This is not my first job in fashion related illustration. The comic bookish characters on the right hand side were
from a freelance job many years back. The job was to create the two characters from text description and also design the jersey top,
short, hoodie, and sweat pants all with the logo incorporated. This was my first foray into clothing design - and not the last.
I also got hired to do a series of sock designs. One other related job was more technical. I did a job for a tailoring company. The
job was to do technical break down of different cuts, collar and cuff styles. Basically everything a custom suit tailor does..
