A new business venture coming soon....

Angry Cat


Hello all!  Felt like breaking up the monsters with an angry cat.  I was doing some cat sketches on my notebook before going to the gym.

I was sorting out how much I need to pay for taxes this year and .....oh my....it's going to be a big one.   I need to buy some equipment too before the tax year ends.  Sigh.  Money,  I don't care what anyone else says, it does buy you some amount of happiness.  Like security, new clothes, food and fun.  No money, means you can't do a whole lot of things.  A lot of fun costs money nowadays you know! So aside from needing to tighten my belt  am going to take on as much freelance work as I could possibly do to supplement income and stuff.  Got to bite the bullet.  I want to do certain things, so am going to work for it.  Certainly not going to be lending out cash or anything like that this year...money as a freelancer is equal to security.  Having that taken away is so disheartening and it drives me crazy.

It's a hard balance.  You can't take money with you when you die and you don't want to live to work either but money pays for the stuff I love like eating out, travelling, gym and the occasional shopping spree.  Money pays for my lifestyle, paying rent and bills and being to afford equipment and supplies as I need them.  It's difficult....lucky for me, I love my job.  I do love freelancing and working on different projects and I find myself very fortunate to be able to afford stuff because of it.

Now back to work!

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

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!
