I often feel that we've become stunningly detached from nature as human beings. I think our natural instincts and...for many of us...our muscles have atrophied! We float way above our natural origins in our cozy made up environments.
I was recently getting a pedicure, and the woman who was painting my toes mentioned that my feet were so soft and free of calluses that she suspected I just floated above the ground instead of walking. While that is kinda funny, it does showcase my modern day passtimes, and it did pop into my mind while conceptualizing this illustration. Its true...I don't do much walking around barefoot on pebbles....my feet spend most of their time tucked into tennis shoes or curled up underneath me while working.
