IF: Deja-vu

Hi all!

Here's my submission to Illustration Friday's theme: Deja vu.  This was not how I thought the drawing would end up being....I actually had a girl in a cafe originally and have somehow ended up with a scientific dude going through the lab inventory.  Go figure.  I like how this has turned out though!  This was all done in Flash.  I have also discovered that Flash CS4 does not like too much shading but Flash CS3 handles it very well.

Things have been going well.  I am still working on creating backgrounds and props for a 10 x 1 minute TV series and doing illustrations for a University for their online tests.  A lot of fun.  I am also going back to kick boxing training soon and have started rock climbing again.  Yay for activities!

So much plans for this year.  Thinking of doing an exhibition and displaying nothing but hand painted non-digital works....going to be interesting since I've gotten so used to doing a combination of both.  Least I have a theme in mind now!


  1. I like the look on his face... really expressive!

  2. there's a sense of madness in this picture

  3. Great work! Good luck with the project!!!

  4. like it a lot!!! hope to see part of that exhibition of nothing but hand painted non-digital, sounds pretty good, i'll try to post something like that (: i"ll check ur blog soon for more inspiration

  5. I love all the colors!
    She also has such a great perplexed expression.

  6. Wow! When do you sleep? This illustration is very cool Marta! Love the colors and expression :o)

  7. Wonderful! I love the psychedelic feel. Whoa, painting and illustrating and kick boxing and rock ROCK, girl! Happy New Year!

  8. Great vibrant colors. I'm glad she has on her protective goggles and gloves, some of that stuff looks toxic! Safety first I always say!

  9. Wow - so much detail and you did that in Flash!

    Sounds like a busy start to the new year! That's great!

  10. Very funny! The science dude's expression is awesome hehehe. And in Flash? That's impressive.
    I hope all your friends and fam in Bris are all doing ok. It's been a very sad day for some of our close friends losing loved ones and businesses :(

  11. I love this and I love when a drawing starts off one way and ends up as something completely different to what we originally intended :)

  12. Deja vu all over again! Love the perplexed expression!

  13. I love your illustration Marta! and love the expression and the background! :)

    Thank you for commenting on my blog!!!

  14. I Love his expression too! Great work.

  15. I love the colors in this and would NEVER have guessed this was done entirely in flash.
    Awesome work!

Hi, hi! 

How are things going?  Thought I would touch base.  My first week and a bit at work has been quite full on.  Lots of work to do for now.....will see how that goes.  Rob and I went to Sushi Jiro at the QV last weekend for some delicious sushi train.  We love sushi train.  I especially wanted to draw the scampi nigiri and the spicy salmon nigiri.

I also drew my fatty boombah kitty, Hanzo.  He is on a diet...but it's going to take time to lose weight, so he's still fat.  I need to lose weight too.  I really need to lessen my sugar and certainly exercise more. 

Working on some test animations tomorrow.  Should be good fun!

IF: Burning


This is my illustration for Illustration Friday and the theme is Burning.  I wanted to do something simple with bold colours and I went for "burning passion" and why not?  I think it's the type of burning most people wont mind at all.  This was illustrated in Flash.

I bought two awesome fashion books today: Dreaming of Chanel and Dreaming of Dior.  I would definitely recommend them!

IF: Mail

"Peggy was so surprised when she discovered that........"

This is my submission for Illustration Friday: Mail.  Thought I would leave it open ended for everyone else to fill in the blanks.

I haven't been able to submit for two weeks because of freelance work and it feels so nice to have something up for this week.  I am still on fashion illustration mode and enjoying it a lot.  Done in Flash and tweaked in Photoshop.
