Wondering.....


 Hi there,

I saw this site today by Ben Hood and he illustrates every day and is currently up to illustration #165.  It is very impressive and insane!  I did something similar last year in April 2010 and the goal was to illustrate every day for the whole month.  I got up to 32 illustrations.  Anyhow, I thought I would give it a go again, drawing something every day (that includes sketches and animation roughs :P ), though not necessarily folio pieces....that would be crazy!  That said, I will do my utmost best to make the drawings I do as good as possible.  I will try a 6 month mark..so until December 31 of this year!

This drawing is hand drawn and coloured and textured up in photoshop.  The image is influenced by a photograph that my good friend, Leisl took on her holiday.

I am currently working on one small game, some illustrations for a university and an animated pilot but am still looking for more work especially towards the last few months of this year.  It has been rather scary as the animation industry has been very slow in Melbourne this year.  I can't really see what I will be doing after August and it does worry me a bit.  I have a lot of personal projects that I am trying to develop and studying certain programs as well.  Just have to take it as it comes.

Anyhow...this is technically the second illustration in a row as I finished my piece for Illustration Friday yesterday :D

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!
