Monster Face 17



I am really wishing for some time to sit down and do some proper illustrations just for myself and not just for work or exhibitions.  I just want to draw a couple of whimsical drawings in my head but I haven't had the time to sit down and do it lately.  When I have free time, it's been going to house chores, drawing properly for freelance and exhibiting pieces, and seeing my partner and friends.  There's really not a whole lot of time at the moment.  I just want to sit down for hours working on one nice piece just for me.  Sadly, this won't be the case over the next few months.  I've only had time to draw in-between scenes at work and then relaxing before bed by colouring up what I draw.  I suppose, I need to make more of an effort to bring proper sketchbooks to work and draw on my lunch break.  This may happen yet.

I enjoy the monsters and doodling on my notebook because I find it relaxing and I like not being too precious but then I see some fabulous works by people I follow on blogger and on Facebook and I am inspired, intimidated and frustrated by it all simultaneously.  Inspired, because I do want to make amazing pieces, intimidated because am not sure if I can ever reach that level and frustrated by my lack of time.  I have a lot of projects on my plate, both professional and personal.  I know I am doing a lot and I always take more.  I suppose my downfall is finding that balance.  Or needing sleep.  If I could lose sleep, I probably would.....

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!
