Melbourne Marathon: 10km run

Start of the Race

End of the race
Howdy!  I don't normally post anything non-art related but am pretty pleased with my achievement this morning.  I joined the Melbourne Marathon and decided, with a boost of confidence from my trainer, to do the 10 km run.  I ran this morning and achieved it in 59 minutes and 28 seconds.  Not bad for a girl that in January this year was huffing and puffing doing a couple of minutes on the treadmill.  Making the time to train this year has been great.  I feel that I have more energy and more confidence and belief in myself, regardless of what other people think and my work has not suffered at all.  Not one bit actually and am busier than ever! 

I have my first sport medal.  It's so cool.

Anyway, I am now going to treat my amazing self to some well deserved brekky and enjoy the sun!  Maybe take a nap.


  1. Congratulations and well done. That is admirable time! How exciting to get a medal.

    I ran my first 5K at age 50 yrs and got a bronze, I was so thrilled. I know how you are feeling.

    Well done, well deserved

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


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: 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.
