Illustration Friday: Feet

Alas, there are many highs and lows to being tall. Some of the highs are a competitive edge in basketball and reaching the top shelf of those towering kitchen cupboards. One of the lows, pictured above, is shoe shopping. All the trendy shops seem to use 12 as a cutoff size, while I'm pushing a 15.

This drawing actually happened to me yesterday in trendy Queen West in Toronto (but I was wearing socks). I'm seriously considering becoming the Cobbler of Cool after this latest incident, with sizes ranging from Tiny Tim to Shaq. Stay tuned (and stay trendy)...

That's sizism. Don't let 'em get you down. I like your drawing too.
