IF: Midsummer Night


Here's is my entry to Illustration Friday's Midsummer Night topic.  I decided to go with Midsummer Night's Dream and enter a faerie.  Nothing like a good excuse to draw up a fairy!  Done with colour pencils and then brought into Photoshop.

I went on a 10km hike at the Dandenong ranges last Saturday and it was so much fun!  That said, sweat, cold weather and just recently recovered from the flu do not mix.  I am a bit sick again and am not happy about it.  I wanted to get a lot of work done for a couple of small jobs this week and next week before the pilot job starts up again.  Ah well.  Still managed to get some work done.  Hopefully tomorrow I will be much better...some sleep will do me some good.  I am going to bed soon after I put up this post.

Happy Monday everyone!  Hope it was awesome.  Or as good as a Monday could possibly be anyhow.


  1. Beautiful tones and textures. I love the flower arrangement behind her ear.

  2. This is really beautiful. I've not participated in IF for a while now, really need to get back into it again, thank for the reminder :)

  3. The thoughtful expression is intriguing. Very nice colour palette.

  4. I like the look in her eyes. Well done.

  5. This is very beautiful. The composition and the technique really fit the topic. I like it very much.

Space Chickens in Space Trailer

Hi, hi!  A trailer for the projects I've been working on all year at Studio Moshi, as an Animation Team Lead, has been released!  Here it is in all it's glory.  It's pretty fun and manic and colourful, with funny stories and appealing characters. All the good things that I enjoy when working on a project.

It's always interesting when working with people from different countries and time zones, getting assets and feedback but it works.

We have 4 months left on this project.  Where did the time go?  It feels like it just zipped by.  I am looking forward to a break.  I think...this time around I will focus on getting my website done and working out all my social media accounts and perhaps a few new pieces as well.

Been doing budgets too.  I think I may have been eating out way too much and shopping, but hey...can't take money with you when you die!  That said, I think I will endeavor to be a bit more frugal in the next production.

Drawing Request 08: A rancid baby teething on the enterprise while a stray shrink ray lies on the porch of the redneck family.

Day 34 and I've finally done another one of the drawing requests.  Only 2 more to go! This one is for my friend Peter Douglas, he requested this on facebook a while back, his request: A rancid baby teething on the enterprise while a stray shrink ray lies on the porch of the redneck family.  This was done with fineliners and brought into photoshop.

I am worried about what's going to happen after the pilot gig.  It's been really slow this year and with financial crisis looming...who knows what's going to happen.  I've never done any other sort of work that wasn't creative...with the exception of that one summer job I had working at a chocolate factory and admittedly that was fun.  Oh the many chocolates...ending up in my pocket (it was all perfectly legal, they encouraged workers to eat chocolates thinking that will make us all sick of it....obviously they didn't know that I could live solely on chocolates).   Anyway, I can't complain, I&…

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…
