Illustration Job: Steampunk Shoes

Something I illustrated late last year for a job.  It was for an app and one of the props requested was Steampunk Shoes.  I never used to draw any props but over the last 2 years, I started getting hired to design props and backgrounds which is absolutely awesome and it makes me more versatile as an illustrator.  It's good fun and I really enjoy it.

Studio work is going well and I am on target and having a good time with the work.  Looking forward to MOSTLY chilling out this weekend.  I say mostly as I still have freelance and personal paintings to do.  As always, it would be nice to have more robotic attributes and not need food, sleep and never getting tired.

I also managed to do this at training today.....


Pretty happy with that!  Next aim is to be able to hold the stand for longer and reduce the amount of support.  Considering this is my second time trying to do a handstand, am doing pretty well!  I remember being terrified of it and certainly being jealous by some of the kids back in school who could do it.  Now here I am...physically stronger and more fit than I ever was and am 33.  Having a personal trainer is one of the best things I have ever decided to do for myself and having Justin be my trainer has been fantastic.  He knows how to read me and I trust him to make sure I don't break my neck.

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.
