Toughen Up!


Day 94 of illustrating everday.  It has been a very interesting last few months, turbulence all around but I can't say that there hasn't been a lot of enjoyable and satisfying times too. That said the last few months got me thinking that perhaps I should change my personality a bit and be harder...and less accommodating.  I don't know what it is, I make time for people cause I can.  I know how to juggle my time, am a freelancer and am good at what I do.  I don't know how people perceive that I guess.

This was done with copic fineliners and coloured in Photoshop.

  1. She looks fearsome! :)
    It can be really difficult to find a right balance between being accommodating and helpful and being able to know when it's right to say no to someone. I think there always comes a time when we just know that we're being either too helpful for our own good or too closed and unwilling to compromise our time so go with your gut feeling, it almost never fails :)

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: 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.
