IF: Asleep

Hello,

This is an old hand drawn illustration I did a few years ago which I re-worked in Photoshop.  I have not posted it in my blog and I thought it suited the Illustration Friday theme perfectly.  I drew this during my break at work in 2009.  It was a tough time back then in that particular studio and we were working ridiculously long hours to get the project done.  I remember just running on coffee, hot chocolates and sheer will.  I knew that after the project all I was going to do was sleeeeeeeeep!

I would like sleep now.  I spent most of yesterday and all night looking for a folder of important documents which ended up being at my parent's place.  Thank God!  But alas, I do need to get some work done today so sleeping needs to wait a little longer....

  21. Man, this is the best feeling ever... reminds me of just sinking into a nice, hot cup of coffee, and letting your thoughts drift. And the stained paper is perfectly appropriate for this. Great illustration. :-)

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

Howdy!

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!
