One Of A Kind Custom Pieces Created With Recycled Comics.
About Me (pictured here with Harley & Ivy at Denver Comic Con 2015):
If you haven't guessed yet, I am an incredibly stoic individual with no sense of humor who takes myself very seriously. To be truthful (see you've been on this page long enough that we're friends now so I can be honest) I am a grateful person who has the awesome opportunity to marry my love of comics with my adoration for how a unique pair of shoes can change how we carry ourselves.
Giraffe Soul breathes new life into beloved comic books, graphic novels, and other print related materials. Utilizing heels, purses, clutches and wallets; Giraffe Soul creates one-of-a-kind wearable art pieces for adventurous clients. Whether you like an item from our inventory or choose to work with us on something special; the end goal is for you to come away with a piece that is as unique and creative as you are.
What is with the Giraffe?
Giraffes have always held a special place in my heart. We share the same knobby knees, long legs, and elongated necklines. There is also something endearing about giraffes, they have a quiet confidence about them and people cannot help but stop and stare when they are near. Fun Fact: giraffes have the largest heart of any land mammal (just in case it comes up for you the next time you are on Jeopardy.)
It doesn't matter how we identify or where we reside ... shoes transform how we feel and ultimately how we carry ourselves. Heels in particular not only make a person obviously taller, they help to create an air of confidence. In addition to wearable art pieces we offer custom items including but not limited to sketchbooks/unlined journals, flasks, cake plates, serving trays, and game boards.
Why Primarily Comics and Graphic Novels?
I have been over six feet tall since the eighth grade. Let's be honest; how many people did I have to "look up" to at that age? :) I identified with the women of G.L.O.W. (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling - you will want to Google this) and heroines like Lynda Carter. Additionally comics gave me an avenue to escape what was happening in the world around me. I love working with comics since they are a diverse art medium. I am able to create one of a kind wearable art pieces for clients to express themselves far beyond the clip/clap of the average heel.
