Entry: 8th annual contemporary art prize entry

Hello!  I entered a piece to this exhibition which is on tomorrow!  It's going to be very, very packed I think as there's about 60 artists displaying.  I think it should be a good night though!  I will be displaying the mecha catfish I finished a week or two ago.  I hope it is received well.  It will be displaying at the Brunswick Arts Space.

I also went to the aquarium today and bought an air pump and an air stone to keep the water aerated and also bought some premium fish food that has garlic to help with the fishies digestion and if they have any parasites in them.  The medications available may be too strong for my guppies and it may actually kill them.  My keeping is an expensive hobby and the funny thing here is that the buying of the fish is the least of my expenses.  I don't regret it though and am hoping to be quite knowledgeable in this and less stressed before the year is out.  I really enjoy aquascaping too.

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.
