Howdy, Day 73 and it had to be a quick one as I have more work to do tonight. I needed to take a break this afternoon and went to the city to do a little bit of shopping. A little retail therapy does wonders to ones mood. I find it did! Especially when there are bargains to be had! That said, I do have to get some work done now and make up for the hours I didn't do today. The joys of being a freelancer is the flexibility of time. So I can take breaks in a sunny day and then work till the wee hours of the morning if I please. That said though, watch the panic when work is slow or the insanity when there is too much to handle.
This was done in Flash and some textures in Photoshop. It has been a long time since I drew anything in Flash for my blog!
"Little Benny is off to remedy a pest problem" Howdy, When the theme "Remedy" for Illustration Friday came about, this came to my head. I suppose I always had a thorough and maybe a tad bit on the overkill side when it comes to remedying certain problems. I got bitten by bedbugs while I was in an Austrian hostel and this is exactly what I wanted to do...eradicate the nasty little creatures from the face of the planet. This is hand drawn and then scanned into Photoshop for colouring. I went hiking again today. Went hiking in the rain and mud in the Dandeong ranges and treated myself to scones afterwards. Not a bad day at all. Keeping active and having a balance between work and staying at home all the time and just trekking outdoors really helps me focus on what I need to do.
You know what the nastiest predators are? The ones who look cute and friendly! Dont you want to hug these guys? Look at their big smiles! Take a wild guess what they have in they're lil sacks and what they're going to do with them. I imagine that these guys mugged a few storks in the way..... My entry for Illustration Friday ! Yay! I love what I do. I love drawing and animating for a living but sometimes....sometimes I wish I was in something steadier and am not always looking to where my next gig will be coming from. I enjoy and have been very lucky as a freelancer and hope to be able to keep it up. Thinking of getting into 3D and perhaps games..that would be fun! I have a few more weeks before I leave for Japan. Very excited!
Did you know that if you give someone 6 red roses it means " I want to be yours". It would certainly increase your popularity with that person. My first school of flower fish. Did you guys notice the bunnies? It's nice to travel with company. I went and sold my zine and a print of this image at a zine fair today. I've never done it and I had a great time and sold a few things too. Anyone interested in this print? There are still some left! Send me an email and we'll work something out ;) I did find it interesting that people didn't notice that they were fish. I shall label the signage next time. I am thinking of releasing a limited edition picture book of this series. I am currently working on a pair of Bluebell fish. I also trained today. I had McDonalds before training. Note to self, never have that junk ever again. Meh, I was silly and in a rush to get back to the Zine fair. I paid for it at training though. Much work needs to get don
