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!

Howdy!  It's been a while since i posted anything up on the blog.  My bad. I've been super busy with one job after another and I WAS doing a few drawing challenges too before I got overrun with work.

For news, I finished up with one of my animation jobs last Monday, started work at one of my regular studios on Thursday and we're working on a cartoon movie for DVD, did drawing and freelance illustration in between those days and caught up with a friend, somebody was being a jack ass on the tram and I let them know it.   Rob and I also watched Logan, a great movie and I would totally recommend it.

Today, I did a bit of work, received text from one of my employers about more work and we're about to enjoy the day in a country fair.  Well, if we make it in time.  I also cooked up pancakes this morning and it wasn't a disaster.

Our kitty Hanzo (changed from Dorian) is causing a lot of mischief and he likes to eat electric cables.  Guess we have to find something to stop…

Hello! Hello!  Some news!  I was on TV a few weeks back, April 07 to be precise, to represent Moshi with Christien Clegg and Dale Andreson for Space Chickens!  It was really good fun.  The hosts Lauren and Andy were super nice.  I was quite nervous, there wasn't a lot of warm up before filming and it was all very spontaneous.  We were advised to just run with any mistakes made. smile and just have a lot of energy!

Dale and I had a couple of draw offs while Christien refereed and described Space Chickens and  animation.  There were some really weird topics that we had to draw for the last segment, I had to draw a chicken doing taxes on the sun (with Andy) and a Pelican doing the lambada on a shooting star. We only had a minute each for each drawing.  It was crazy to say the least.  I did enjoy myself though.

The pictures below were taken by our Producer that accompanied us to the shoot!



In the first drawing,, where we had to draw the chickens, I was like grabbing colors to color m…
