Flemington Races


Hello, hello! Illustration 122 in a row.  Today was a public holiday in Melbourne because of the Races and so there were a lot of fashionable ladies and gents roaming around the city today.  All the ladies have hats or fascinators on their heads and I thought I'd draw a hat that I would like to wear.  I would love a hat full of buildings, would be pretty cool, especially if little people came out to play. I drew this up while I was at a BBQ today with friends. 

I am starting to struggle putting up decent drawings up on the blog.  I have been working on some A3 sized drawings, which am not posting up online, for a proper exhibition I want to do next year.  So creating finished pieces for that, work, socializing, gym, daily drawings and other miscellaneous projects is starting to burn me out.  I have been sleeping about 2-3 in the morning and waking up about 8:30 and it has started to take its toll.  I stayed up working on a fish bone drawing last night.  Tried to do some work yesterday but I guess I wasn't functioning properly.  I have every intention of just sitting down and concentrating on finishing a shot tomorrow....hopefully.  Need to go to the gym tomorrow night too...I hope I get there.

  2. Aww, Marta, you need some rest!

    LOVE this drawing by the way. I'd love a hat like that too! I'll wear my country farm hat, you wear your city hat, and we'll let our little citizens play together. :)

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.
