Fox Curls

Day 101 of illustrating straight!  Woo hoo!!  Feeling pretty good.

Soooo, taxes.  I don't like doing them, I don't like getting taxed and I am freaked out about it as I am a freelancer as we don't really get taxed till later and then it hits us. Hits us like an avalanche.  A really big avalanche and in that avalanche is a snow covered yeti....ready to take your limbs off... all at once.  Okay, so maybe that statement was a bit over dramatic, but you get the gist of it.  I am going to see the accountant next am trying to find the inspiration to sit down and sort out my paper work.  Gah.

Other news...if all goes well, I will have gigs till the end of the year which would be awesome!  I am also considering learning how to sculpt and wondering when to fit it in.  Also wondering...when to fit gym in this week.  I got a few due dates and projects am working on simultaneously.  It's nice to have work.  Not so nice is knowing all the earnings will go to tax.  Yup, I have taxes on the brain and deadlines.  Feeling a bit stressed but pleased with progress and opportunities coming at the same time.

Piece is done in Flash and Photoshop.

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


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!
