The Letter "A"


Hey there,

Day 12 with less than 15 minutes to go.  This is me doing an exercise in Typography.  I bought a few typography books from Readers Feast and was inspired to try and designing my own letters.  This is actually 1 out of the 10 designs I made tonight  I did this one while sitting in a tram to go to this film meeting this evening.  I managed to get up to the letter C while on the tram and then  I drew another 8 at the film meeting.  Is it cheating if I post up a letter each day as an illustration/drawing?  26 letters may get a bit boring I suppose....but I did have fun designing letters tonight.  No pencils, all done with a 0.3 Copic fine liner and then brought into Photoshop.

I was very busy today.  Sent of my very first PDF of my illustrations to a company, not too bad considering it's my first time in doing a PDF but I spotted some errors only after I sent it!  Gah!  That will teach me to do too many things at the same time.  The pictures are pretty though.  I am pleased on my progress as an artist in that department.  Now to see if I can actually do it professionally!  Blocked out one of my more difficult shots for this Pilot and emailing people about other gigs and meet ups and hikes...there really isn't a lot of time during the day!!!  I need to finish my Monster Loop still!  Progress is sooooo slow for that one :(  Sob!

  2. I didn't make it to "Z"! I got up to J though...I should just use those Letter designs as my back-up when things go a bit astray with time. I don't think I can stand looking at my blog if I put a letter up each day for the next 25 days :P

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.
