Playing around with Mepxy (day of the dead inspired)

Day of the dead piece

One of my work in progress shots

I actually drew this a few days ago using nothing but Mepxy Pens.  I started at the studio at work, I wasn;t feeling the animation vibe last week and I got pretty much everything done so I thought to start drawing.  It was really good fun and a different method to draw than my usual sketch, fine line and then colour.  Here, I had a light sketch and went straight to colour. 

I am part of an exhibition next month.  Details tomorrow.  My next batch of pieces will be coloured using Mepxy Pens on Bristol paper.  Should be good fun!  I am going to need to test if Mepxy and watercolours can mix too as am sure that will yield some interesting results if it does.....

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


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: 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.
