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!

Howdy!  It's been a while since i posted anything up on the blog.  My bad. I've been super busy with one job after another and I WAS doing a few drawing challenges too before I got overrun with work.

For news, I finished up with one of my animation jobs last Monday, started work at one of my regular studios on Thursday and we're working on a cartoon movie for DVD, did drawing and freelance illustration in between those days and caught up with a friend, somebody was being a jack ass on the tram and I let them know it.   Rob and I also watched Logan, a great movie and I would totally recommend it.

Today, I did a bit of work, received text from one of my employers about more work and we're about to enjoy the day in a country fair.  Well, if we make it in time.  I also cooked up pancakes this morning and it wasn't a disaster.

Our kitty Hanzo (changed from Dorian) is causing a lot of mischief and he likes to eat electric cables.  Guess we have to find something to stop…

Hello! Hello!  Some news!  I was on TV a few weeks back, April 07 to be precise, to represent Moshi with Christien Clegg and Dale Andreson for Space Chickens!  It was really good fun.  The hosts Lauren and Andy were super nice.  I was quite nervous, there wasn't a lot of warm up before filming and it was all very spontaneous.  We were advised to just run with any mistakes made. smile and just have a lot of energy!

Dale and I had a couple of draw offs while Christien refereed and described Space Chickens and  animation.  There were some really weird topics that we had to draw for the last segment, I had to draw a chicken doing taxes on the sun (with Andy) and a Pelican doing the lambada on a shooting star. We only had a minute each for each drawing.  It was crazy to say the least.  I did enjoy myself though.

The pictures below were taken by our Producer that accompanied us to the shoot!

In the first drawing,, where we had to draw the chickens, I was like grabbing colors to color m…
