SMILE!!!  It's Saturday!!!!   Day 21 out of a 183 today.  People need to smile more.  I read somewhere that if you smile, the action actually tricks your body into thinking you're happy (just incase you aren't).  Anyway, smiling makes people look better and more approachable.

I saw a woman who looked pretty much like this on the train a few days ago and I just felt like drawing her.  I drew this at the local cafe, no pencils, straight with a copic 0.3 pen and then coloured in Photoshop.  I find drawing loose and scribbly very relaxing. 

A nice day today, was doodling some concept art ideas, went to the gym, met some friends and now I need to do some work.  Yup, life of a freelancer.  That said, I slept in today and it felt very nice.


  1. I'm smiling right now because it's weekend and (I'm a bit scared to write this) the sun's come out! Big smile for that :-)))

  2. Aha great drawing Marta! It kind of goes with our dolphin twitpics, smiling is meant to release endorphins into one's head too :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: 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


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!
