IF: Imperfect

 Hey all! Here I am at Day 35 of drawing straight till December 31.  Still going strong I think and coming up with a lot of different looks, styles,'s a lot of fun.  This was done for Illustration Fridays theme: Imperfect.  Basically was just thinking of the stuff that some attractive people, especially women,  make about themselves like freckles.  I always hear about the freckles but I think they're really cute! Some wear glasses and they feel self-conscious or that they're not as pretty with them on, I wear glasses and personally I think I look good with them on as I do off and I find a lot of people look great with glasses.  Then there's the teeth, crooked, gap, bunny teeth...again I think they all add to the charm of ones features.  Unmanageable or frizzy hair, being a girl of straight and slightly wavy hair I always envied those with curls, especially when I was a young. 

This was done with copic fine liners, a faber castel brush pen and colour pencils.  No photoshop tonight.  I like doing things traditionally too from time to time.  I drew this with the comic people at the NGV.  If you're in Melbourne, come and check them out, they're only there for 8 more days!  I plan to go in again and draw before they have to pack up.  It's fun doing artwork with creative people around.

Gotta do some work tonight as I didn't do much today!


  1. I agree about everything you said except that bit about unmanageable and frizzy hair - I've had it all my life and trust me it's one of the most annoying imperfections, I've battled with it all my life and I will continue to fight with it :D

  2. Oh my goodness how sweet is she!!! I just love her personality, her personal style, that grab between her teeth and those aweseome glasses. She is wonderful.
    Thanks so much for the well wishes.
    Best to you as well.

  3. Hands-on feel from the traditional media goes along with the theme - a very appealing image. Ever notice how folks who get aspects of their appearance 'fixed' all start to look alike? Hmmm...

  4. oh i think she looks FINE!
    always love red-haired girls, heheh :D

    perfect is boring!

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!

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…

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…
