IF: Stay

Howdy,

Day 11 out of 183 days. Yup from July 1 to December 31 of this year is a 183 days...so the goal is to reach 183 posts.  Holy crud...what on earth did I embark on?  Too late now! This is my entry for Illustration Friday, the theme being "stay".  Boy, did I just want to stay in bed today and sleep in the warmth and comfort underneath my doona.  Alas, there is no rest for the busy and I was very busy today.  A meeting in the morning, a house inspection in the afternoon and dinner in the evening and I worked in-between everything too.  I didn't get everything I wanted to get done today though!  It makes me feel all panicky!

This illustration was done with copic pens and a brush pen.  Then brought into photoshop for some textures and touch ups.  This is the first illustration I've used my coloured copics on!

Oh, I forgot to mention I went to Reader's Feast again and bought more books.  I love art books!  I bought a couple of Typography books, a fashion book and a book of textures....which I will be using on my illustrations shortly.  My wallet is hurting though.....but books are a great resource and a great source of inspiration.  I really like the raw illustration style of Kat Macleod that I found in the book "What on earth are you wearing" by Michi girl.  This illustration was slightly inspired by her works but with my own style put into it.

Some journal entries!

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

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!

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.
