A new business venture coming soon....

Monster Face 12


I have been eating a lot of  Japanese food out during lunch times at work at this very nice local Japanese place in Richmond called the Happy Kappa.  Though, I think from hereon to save my pennies, i may only eat there once a week or every other week now.  Good cheap food though which I quite enjoy and it's nice being out of the studio every now and then.

Anyhoo, this monster face is close to a Japanese demon (an oni) which I am sure is similar to something I've seen before.  I really want to go to Japan.  If I was to die this minute, my biggest regret is not enjoying some time in Japan.  I miss learning Japanese and I do wish I had the time to just squeeze everything I want to do in life in.  I want to know and learn more about Japanese culture and they're definitely my favourite cuisine hands down.  We used to go to this great Japanese place every Sunday with the family called Shiroi Hana.  I loved that place and I always found it something to look forward to.  

I  am hoping to travel after this current contract ends and have enough cash to do that and survive again as a freelancer once I get back.  We shall see how things pan out though.  Two years is a long time to plan anything in advance and you never know what spanner in the works or other opportunities could be thrown in!  Japan and more of Europe is on my list.  If I could travel for 6 months....my goodness, that would be amazing.  Hoping to have company with me on my adventures too along the way....experiences are good to share with someone..so you can look back at the memories together.

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!
