Illos Shoe line:
This project was completed in 2011 for my senior exhibition at the University of South Dakota. For this project I wanted to use hand drawn sketches as the main focus.
The shoe line consists of four pairs of shoes that are in accordance to the seasons of the year. The title Illos is my play on the word Illustration.
For the packaging of this project I used paper mache as the texture in order tostrengthen the hand done quality of all of the pieces. The shoe boxes are significantly smaller than most shoe boxes you see on the shelves today. This is to help reduce space when stacking multiple pairs of shoes.
In order to further this line t-shirts, business packages, and posters were created.
