Too Cute!!!!!


Howdy everyone!  Day 79 of illustrating everyday...thought I'd draw these characters again and see if I could improve on the style just for fun.  I draw so many different things and characters, sometimes it's nice to develop existing designs and see how much cuter they can get!  I just felt like drawing something cute.  For those who are curious...the cat is biting the bunny's ear.  Done in Flash.

Pretty much spent all of today working, it was a nice and sunny day too.  I prefer to be stuck indoors working in front of a computer when there is a storm out and am sure most people think that...unless you do outdoor work...

People, myself included, think too much of the future or the past and not really taking the time to enjoy the present.  We can plan all we want for the future, knowing very well that the decisions in the present "could" affect it but am sure most people have had the experience of a monkey wrench being thrown into those plans by some unforeseen event/person.  Then there are the people who can't enjoy the present (or even the nearby future) cause they are so stuck in the past.  All the ghosts that haunts them and it ruins any enjoyment that the present people/situations can bring.  Of course not thinking about the past or present is bad too because you don't learn your mistakes from the past and you don't prepare for what may come in the future.  Balance is the key to all these things...people spout about it all the time but it's true.

"The past is history, the future is a mystery, but today is a gift.  That is why it is called the 'present'. 
Quoted from the Kung Fu Master Turtle (Master Oogway) from Kung Fu Panda 01....though am sure it's an old existing quote but I have no idea who.  Yeah, am a nerd and a cartoon buff, but I have an excuse!  Am an animator after all.

  1. Very wise sentiments Marta! And it seems that bunny is thoroughly enjoying the present here and not caring one whit about the past or the future...unless of course, it's the hope of more ear biting in the future!

Some journal entries!

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: 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!

IF: Remedy

"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.
