Painted Comic Book Explores The Life Of Salvatore Ferragamo [Pics]

High fashion shoemaker's story captured in a graphic novella using acrylics and india inks.

Ross Brooks

Italian footwear brand Salvatore Ferragamo is trying to raise awareness of its founder by featuring him in his very own comic book. “Making Of A Dream” aims to portray Mr. Ferragamo’s story in a whimsical fashion, telling his story in a unique way.

Animator, illustrator and cartoonist Frank Espinosa was chosen for the project thanks to his artistic ability and the fact he is the son of a cobbler, giving him a personal understanding of what it means to be a shoemaker. A variety of media including acrylic, gouache on pencil and India ink with rice paper inserts was used to convey the messy nature of a cobbler’s store.
