These Boots – icon for Justine Larbalestier

Justine Larbalestier's boots

The latest project to go live! Pen and ink with digital colour, over a coat of arms supplied by Justine. These boots are an icon for author Justine Larbalestier, and are based on her own remarkable boots (which I first saw at the Brisbane Writers Festival last year).


I am a fan of good boots, perhaps because of scarcity. I grew up wearing boots (elastic sided RMs, in my part of the country), but I have large feet with a high instep, and have spent too much time having my plastic-bag-wrapped foot physically wrestled into boots by aggressive salespeople.

Now, I often send my characters (drawn or written) off wearing good sturdy footwear, which they do not have any difficulty buying in their size.
