Illustration Job: Egyptian Chararacter Design

Hi!  Something I worked on late last year.  It was for the History Book job.  Been putting up old jobs (that am allowed to post) and delaying posting on the blog as I do have heaps to show but can;t show anything until after the exhibition that's coming up on Feb 27, this Thursday!  Very excited and nervous.  I have never done a solo exhibition and this is the first joint exhibition am doing which is really close to being a solo since there's only one other artist to look at.  Kinda one of those moments where you have no place to hide, you know? 

I haven't freelanced in over a month, it's a great feeling to get more rest but it makes me nervous too.  Extra money is always good after all. Doing exhibitions is an expensive hobby.  However, I think it is beneficial as it gets my work out there and I would like to focus on more exhibitions and selling my after in about 5-10 years time.  Don't think I can ever give up animating but it would be awesome to make a living selling the works I feel like drawing and designing.....we shall see. 

The economy in Victoria is looking a little dire come the future as a lot of manufacturing jobs are being moved overseas..really hoping that we don't end up in a depression.  Trying to sell art at that time will be extremely difficult as people will only want to pay for necessities.

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.
