A new business venture coming soon....

IF:Shades


Hehehehe, I wanted to draw someone wearing sunnies and Illustration Friday's theme this week is "Shades".  I only used a red fineliner for this piece.  Been trying out drawing with blue and red fineliners the last few days.  I am really enjoying it.  It's a bit of fun and the look is quite different to using black fineliners.

I got on the exercise bike today and cycle for 40 minutes to make 21 km.  It was tiring....and I actually needed to have a nap today which is very very rare for me.  I also keep getting hungry so am not too sure if my metabolism has sped up quite a bit today.  Another busy day tomorrow with picking up supplies, contacting places to display my work, doing stuff at the studio and training!

  1. Talk about attitude, just a hint of sneer! I think the red fineliner looks really cool. Great job with the blowing hair, probably my favorite part.

  6. Its interesting how using another colour other than black can make such a dramatic difference - I would never have thought of using a red felt tip pen - I'm partial to black myself - although I have used purple and that gives it a whole different feel again. Its great to be reminded to think outside the safe little boxes we put our creative selves in...

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

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!
