IF: Stripes


Illustration 127 and dang, I am exhausted!  Not just from drawing the fish either.  I have been doing work pretty much all day.  That said, I went to the Camberwell Markets in the morning before work with a friend and had an awesome time.  I love thrift markets!  Full of both trash and treasure and I am pleased with MOST of my purchases.  Alas, two of the dresses I bought will be difficult to wear.  The disadvantage of these type of markets is that there are no dressing rooms.  Luckily, they were cheap!

Now, this is my attempt of designing a candy cane fish.  I just started doing freelance work which are Christmas themed so the Christmas Holidays is definitely upon us!  I suspect, I will get last minute jobs demanding that everything be done by Christmas.  Always the way...better to be busy than have nothing to do though!  I am starting to stress out on how am going to move stuff to the studio.  I have a lot of stuff on and coordinating times with other people can be a bit aggravating.

Anyway, this is also my submission to Illustration Friday the theme being "Stripes".  I am really inspired to draw my fishies and I keep coming up with more ideas, themes and objects to incorporate in the design.  Really excited to do an exhibition!  Feel free to suggest themes too!

  1. Copic markers, love them! You've done a fantastic job with this fish. I do appreciate the green candy canes and the cute green bunny but man, that is one mean fish. Your lines and shading are really great.

    Have you ever done a dapper fish - something like tuxedo tails and a monocle? Or perhaps flea market fish, where he (or she) is made partly of old tools and other random flea market type items? :)

  5. Fab fab fab! I must agree, that IS one scary face. But come on, he's not such a meanie. Anyone with a bunny and candy has got to have a soft spot somewhere. Sweet stripes!

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!

Howdy!  It's been a while since i posted anything up on the blog.  My bad. I've been super busy with one job after another and I WAS doing a few drawing challenges too before I got overrun with work.

For news, I finished up with one of my animation jobs last Monday, started work at one of my regular studios on Thursday and we're working on a cartoon movie for DVD, did drawing and freelance illustration in between those days and caught up with a friend, somebody was being a jack ass on the tram and I let them know it.   Rob and I also watched Logan, a great movie and I would totally recommend it.

Today, I did a bit of work, received text from one of my employers about more work and we're about to enjoy the day in a country fair.  Well, if we make it in time.  I also cooked up pancakes this morning and it wasn't a disaster.

Our kitty Hanzo (changed from Dorian) is causing a lot of mischief and he likes to eat electric cables.  Guess we have to find something to stop…

Hello! Hello!  Some news!  I was on TV a few weeks back, April 07 to be precise, to represent Moshi with Christien Clegg and Dale Andreson for Space Chickens!  It was really good fun.  The hosts Lauren and Andy were super nice.  I was quite nervous, there wasn't a lot of warm up before filming and it was all very spontaneous.  We were advised to just run with any mistakes made. smile and just have a lot of energy!

Dale and I had a couple of draw offs while Christien refereed and described Space Chickens and  animation.  There were some really weird topics that we had to draw for the last segment, I had to draw a chicken doing taxes on the sun (with Andy) and a Pelican doing the lambada on a shooting star. We only had a minute each for each drawing.  It was crazy to say the least.  I did enjoy myself though.

The pictures below were taken by our Producer that accompanied us to the shoot!



In the first drawing,, where we had to draw the chickens, I was like grabbing colors to color m…
