My entry to this week's Illustration Friday.  I get a lot of mail for previous tenants at my place and I used to always go to the post office with a whole pack of envelopes saying "Return to Sender".  I've been living at my current abode for the last 3 years and I'm still getting mail from the same companies for the previous tenants.  It would be nice to have some "return to sender" faeries do the job for me.


  1. Eek, I hate to mention this but we're still getting mail from tenants who have not lived here in twelve years. Mostly just junk mail to their business, but blech! This poor little fairy seems to be struggling so! Or perhaps it's not heavy at all, she is just hungry for lunch. So cute and really neat background.

  2. I love the colors and the texture, how did you create it?

  3. This is just too adorable Marta...and really, a brilliant idea!!!
    xo J~

  4. Lovely creature and the background is wonderful!

  5. Oh this is great! I love the color and texture of the piece--not to mention the concept. My husband and I have lived in four different places in the last seven years and we still remember all the folks' names we constantly got mail for! It never seems to end.

  6. Love your textures and the cool little fairy - interesting take on return to sender!

  7. I agree--the color & texture are wonderful! And the fairy, simply adorable, toiling away!

  8. Awwww, poor fairy! I bet she has some seriously strong wing muscles. She's adorable! Love the colors in the background. :)

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.
