Still-life drawing at the local cafe

Hehehehehehe.....I haven't done still life since I graduated from Visual Arts in Monash about 12 years ago...wow....am old!  I like my salt shaker and I don't mind the pepper grinder.  Sugar bowl needs work.  Ah well!  I drew this at the local cafe today.  I needed a break from the computer.  This was done using Smiggle colour pencils and Faber Castel pens.  

This is Day 19 of drawing everyday till December 31.  Only 164 days to go! 

The folks at the local cafe also asked if I wanted to display and sell my artwork at their joint.  That was really cool and very flattering.  I am not too sure what to do yet though.  Is digital and printing and framing that out cheaper than painting on actual canvasses?  Should I have a theme?  I am erring towards painting on canvas and doing whatever I please...then again, perhaps I will just do a combination!  I don't know about prices or anything like that as of yet, I am just pleased that someone thought my doodles are good enough to display in their establishment.

  1. Brilliant, you should definitely do something about that offer, your work is really good, go for it.
    I've been playing on canvas some more as well, I love the way you can just gesso the whole painting if you don't like it and start again :)

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

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!
