Face study at a cafe

Hello, hello!  I actually drew this up last Saturday when I was at the Giraffe cafe.  There was a very pretty Asian girl sitting a few tables away and I thought I'd try and sketch her quickly.  Looks too cartoonified though.  Doing quick sketches and studies of people in public spaces is certainly on the list of things to practice on along with backgrounds....I just decided to put most of my efforts on hands this year.

I keep staring at my aquarium.  I have 7 fish in the tanks and it is looking very pretty!  Justin says I can't add anymore plants or fish to the aquarium for a month though until the aquarium has fully cycled.  I am being pretty diligent with the water change and the checking of ammonia and stuff though.  We're in for a heatwave the next few days here in Melbourne and am hoping for no casualties.  My apartment does get rather hot since am on the top floor.

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: 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


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!
