Doesn't this supposedly whimsical and charming kids' fantasy illustration show undertones of weird horror? An obscene alien monster keeps a human female slave..... Shades of Jabba the Hutt and Slavegirl Leia!
This is someone's foot. With a face drawn on the sole. Wearing a collar and tie, glasses, and a hat. With fake "head" hair attached. I know it's "just a drawing." But the concept is ludicrous and creepy. I will not buy your shoes, Mr. Roblee!
