Happy Mother's Day


Happy Mother's Day to my own dearest mom as well to all the mothers out there.  I may have left the roost but when something comes up, like sewing clothes, burning my blanket and doona with an iron and getting something that's similar to bubble gum stuck on it, something to do with food, being sick...I still call home and ask my mum for some advice.  Sometimes, she fixes it, sometimes I get solutions for what needs to be done.  I still show her my artworks from time to time and still get some really good advice on how to improve it. 

My mom is the most multi-talented person I know.  From gardening, sewing, cooking, arts and crafts, sculpting, building, painting and she's a much better traditional artist than I will ever be and everything she has touched or attempted has flourished.  She's absolutely awesome and I wish I had half her talent.  I don't always agree with her decisions and I some times think that she would have been better of choosing a different path but this is to be expected.  No child will ever fully agree or appreciate everything their parent/parents do for them and I don't expect her to support all of my decisions either.  I know that my mom does things to the best of her abilities and that is all one could ever ask for and I appreciate her for it.  She is the most amazing woman I know.....she also has the most fantastic coconut macaroons known to man and I hope she passes down the recipe to me one day.

Happy Mother's Day Mom.

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!
