Guppy Death 01

So about 2 weeks ago I lost my first guppy.  He was alive and well the night before and when I woke up the next day, I found him on the carpet.  He must have jumped out during the night.  I felt pretty devastated, was really trying to keep all the fish healthy and happy.  I feed them twice a day with top of the line fish food, check the temperature regularly and ice the tank if it gets too hot, I test the water everyday, clean once a week and I always check for any abnormalities like loss in colour, if they're stressed in any way, so on and so forth.'s done now.

The corpse was taken care of for me.  I was told by another mate, who is an avid fish keeper himself, that there will be plenty of fish deaths as I go along my fish keeping hobby and that I need to take care of the remains myself next time around.

Frankly, I rather not lose any more any time soon.

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.
