Drawing Request 01: Tim and Ben holding hands


How is everyone?  Since getting back from my Europe holiday I have been working on small animation jobs and am currently looking for more work.  I joined a gym instead of going back to kickboxing and that 3D course I was going to do a week ago got cancelled due to lack of numbers so I am on the search for a new one.  There's a possibility of that starting in July.  We shall see.  I have also been working on my own very small animation which is taking ages.

In the meantime, I am drawing requests.  On my Facebook page I asked for people to send in their drawings requests and I will draw the first 10 given.  It all started when I gave friends: Tim Merks and Ben Grimshaw a couple of left of field drawings to do and I decided to return the favour.  Which may backfire.  Here are the list of requests to be done in any order and if it's highlighted then it's completed!:

1)  BEN: I want a flying cyborg octopus, that is in the bowels of hell, fighting off a horde of demons with his varied lasers, and being aided by his sloth sidekick.

2) TIM:  An episode of 'So you think you can dance' where the judges are being harsh at the performance of a giant T-Rex who is (rather than getting angry) is trying to hold back the tears of the public humiliation. Oh I'm sure he's wearing some kind of costume

3) LOMBARDI: Draw Tim and Ben holding hands
4) DANIEL: Requests you say... :P
How about a giant Kitty using a giraffe-shotgun to fight vampire-hulk. In space.

5) AARON: Request: A movie poster for the film "Machete" that would lead one to believe that it was a romantic comedy.
6) MARTIN: Woolly Mammoth paratroopers!
7) SANDRA: giant evil rabbit eating the longest pizza on Guinness world record actually, giant evil sumo rabbit
8) DEAN: a kitten and a baby fox playing in a field of flowers
9) PETE: A rancid baby teething on the enterprise while a stray shrink ray lies on the porch of the redneck family.
10) BEN: i get the last one...nice! okay, i want to see all the Disney princesses clinging to driftwood, in very heavy seas. a ghost ship, from the 1700's English colonial fleet is approaching them, and it's raining miniature grandfather clocks that are shattering when they hit the waves. enjoy.
 The last one, needless to say will be very painful to do.
Anyway, I managed to finish one last night.  The request by talented  illustrator and animator, Michael Lombardi.     To draw Ben and Tim holding hands.  Thought I'd go for a more comic-like feel or a very cute propaganda poster.
More to come soon.


  1. So good to see you back and it looks like you're going to be one busy lady with all those requests :D

  2. Welcome back....good luck with the drawing request....but by looking at your fantastic art I am sure you will nail the request...... It looks like a great way to come up with new quirky illustrations....

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: 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.

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!
