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.

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.
