Prince Albert slipper for Ernest Journal

Here are the final illustrations for Ernest Journal's Timeless style section. This is on the history of the Prince Albert slipper. The slipper was at one time used as the chosen shoe for the Sultan's Harem, these women were often slaves made to ware them as it was too hard to run away in. The Pope also wares red slippers indoors as a symbol of Christ's crucifixion.

Making some new work for Ernest Journal's history of men's style column. This time they're about the Prince Albert Slipper.

Here are the prints, it came out a bit messy but because of time constraints I'll photoshop that out, as well as putting them into linocut circles that were printed previously.
