Bells

Howdy all!  It is Illustration number 126 in a row.  Another fishy!  My dad said he was missing seeing these guys so I decided to make one today.  One other thing, I wont be doing any Photoshop texturing on all these fishies.  It would seem that the majority of people just like them on a plain white background or something off white.  I guess you can't really see the detail when you put textures upon textures.

Got the keys today for the studio that I will be in with a few friends this month!  Very exciting.  I am glad that work has also picked up so I can pay for all this.  Moving stuff around and settling always costs money.  I also bought a heavy duty laptop and that cost me a pretty penny.  It will be worth it though, being able to bring my work around so I don't have to be cooped up in the house all the time.  I can now do work at the studio, do some freelance work during lunchtime at school or just work at the local cafe to get some fresh air.  Summer is coming in Melbourne and my apartment can heat up pretty badly so it will be nice to find places to escape the heat.

No gym today.  Alas..no gym till Tuesday!  Booked out the next few days with social events and work and my personal projects in-between.  I also need to come up with an animation for this months loopdeloop.  It will have to be simple am afraid, first the theme is giving me some problems ( the theme is condoms) and I am rapidly running out of time to do anything this month.  Busy! Busy! Busy!  That said, I am sad I don't have enough cash to go interstate to see a friend get married.  I was looking forward to it but with laptop, taxes, school, studio and general living stuff...am not as liquid as I would like to be.

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.
