Japanese Gym Girl

Hello hello!

Day 14 out of 183 and am putting in my illustration around midnight.  Got a busy day today and I may not have the time to draw later on.

This done straight away with a copic fine liner and a brush pen.  No pencils again. Coloured with Copic pens. The background was done in photoshop.  I drew this after gym while waiting for a friend.  This is inspired by an Asian girl I saw on the treadmill with these awesome headphones of pink and white and I just had to quickly sketch and cartoonify her afterwards.  I really like this drawing.  Could be cleaner and with nicer lines but hey, this is was done very quickly and without using pencils.   I like this rough and raw style.

Oh, I've been meaning to say this, this isn't my first time of trying to draw straight.  I managed to do it last year with 32 illustrations in a row but this time am aiming for 6 months and I've only been drawing straight for two weeks.  Am a bit daunted but still going for it....I am a stubborn thing.


  1. I love this one, really love it, please keep this drawing challenge going, I'm so enjoying seeing what you come up with every day :)

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


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.
