Showcase: Baby shoe


This baby shoe is one of my most prized possessions. I initially created this with David Witten as a project in digital art class, but it turned into so much more.

The design represents an ideal, serene seascape. By including an array of colors, it shows my love for nature. The original design shows how I've always wanted to be more connected to nature. Being outside is an important part of my life, and the colors included in the design represent my desire to complete something I love: being connected with nature and the world.

The blue, representing the sky, is saturated, while the sun contrasts with the outside. The unity in the image represents how everything in life relates to each other. The complementary colors create a stark contrast between the focal point of the image, the sun, and the background. The image of a setting sun, with rays filling the sky, symbolize how various aspects of life overlap.

Various elements in the art are conducive to representing my life. For example, the variety in colors and images conveys the eclectic nature of my life. The emphasis of the sun represents that I'm a cheerful person. Overall, the shoe design demonstrates many aspects of my life and personality very clearly through the use of various principles of design.
