IF: Storm


Hello, hello!  Well, my internet connection just suddenly died on me and right before I was about to submit a project too.  I had to call up a phone technician and I must commend these people, especially the one who I was speaking to, for their patience and for putting up with people losing their tempers like me.  Am not that great when I need to submit something and the internet goes down when I crucially need it.  It is sometimes difficult to remember that the person on the other line has feelings and are trying their best to fix the problem.  Anyway, if you are reading this Ms bigpond cable technician, thank you again for your patience.

So, aside from freelance work, I was trying to get this up, my submission to Illustration Friday: Storm.  Perhaps more appropriate than I realized...I looked a lot like this when the internet went down.  Except with less hair and more clothes.  The rest was pretty accurate.

Funnily enough, another issue was what spurred this drawing on in the first place.  I was thinking of the impossibility of me ever owning my own house since I am a freelancer and pay is obviously erratic.  I need a whole lot of cash behind me and I may have been able to do it but life tends to throw a spanner in the works so this may not happen now.   I would never give up the creative life but it still puts me in a mood so to speak.  I get a little frustrated by it all.  Still, I am in a profession I love, I am good at it and I have a pretty good life and I can spend my money keeping my fish happy who are a lot less maintenance than a house so it's a win, win! 

Oh...another thing that put me in a stormy mood.....I over boiled my eggs and therefore killed dinner.  I got distracted with work.  I suspect that I tend to make sure that my fish have proper sustenance compared to what I do for myself.....

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.
