A new business venture coming soon....

Cat Angel


Day 36 of drawing straight and this is a character that my younger sister came up with years ago when she was a teenager.  Thought I'd draw this one for her today as she came by and gave me lots and lots of art goodies (papers, paints) that I am very grateful for and this is a small token of my appreciation.  She and her partner also treated me out to lunch today which was so sweet!  Ah, feed the poor starving artist with art and food...what more can one ask for?

This was done with watercolours on canson watercolour paper, with a bith of brush penning and some Photoshopping.  I haven't painted using this medium for over 10 years and it's my first time on it.  It will take a lot of practice to get the feel of water colours again and even when I was using it regularly I always treated it too much like acrylic paints.

Did a bit of work this weekend for different jobs which was very nice and got approvals from the client as well which was even nicer.  More to do tomorrow and gym!  I baked brownies today...I really need that gym.  I am also currently trying to find a costume to wear to Armageddon in Australia (and most likely to the Super Nova next year).  See how we go...

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!
