IF: Myth


My submission to Illustration' Friday's Myth.  I am new to this whole fish-keeping business and been told that fish only have memory that are in the seconds (3 -10?) and I don't think this is the case.  The fish I own definitely remember which corner I feed them from.  People also say that fish don;t have personalities.  Well and truly untrue....they just can't voice it like birds, fish and dogs or have any facial expression.  Hard without eyelids but you can tell a fish's personality by watching how they move.  Who is shy, a bully and gets a long with everyone.  Perhaps this is only in the case of guppies but I doubt it.  Then again...maybe I've just been watching my fish for too long...

I am worried I might be overfeeding them but at the same time I don't want them to starve...though I have researched and saw that it is better to underfeed rather than overfeed.  Perhaps I will get the swing of things once I have more of a routine.

I love watching them though.  It relaxes me.  I do get a tad anxious of the idea of seeing one of them floating belly up.

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.
