Illustration gig: Fire children badges

Howdy all!  I may have put up a pick of a fire child or two up in this blog previously but never the finished product.  Here are some of them now!  I drew these up some time last year.  Hand drawn and inked then coloured into Photoshop and placed in the template. 

A very busy day today.  I visited the studio I will be contracted too from late April and played with Toon Boom, the program I'll be animating in.  I have used the program before and it shouldn't be very hard to pick up again at all.  Things were rapidly coming back to me as I played with the program.  It will still take a week or two till I am totally comfortable with it again though.

I remain busy with illustration work for another couple of weeks yet.  Got to tighten my belt and save up for the tax man!  I know it's months away but I would rather save up as much money as I can now rather than panic later.

Comics camp is this weekend!  Though looks like I'll be bringing my work with me....

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.
