This is Leisl and I gearing up for the colour run. This happened yesterday! It's a 5 km run, walk, stroll, fun run! Every time we reach a kilometre we get splattered with colour. It was a lot of fun, though lesson learned that I will not be catching public transport when events like this are happening and if I do, I will make sure to catch it at the very start of the line. It was absolute madness even trying to get to the venue! A sea a white shirts at every tram stop...and not enough room on the tram! It was good when we got to the venue though. Leisl and I met up and we just geared up to run. Though...with the crowd and the fact that not everyone was running, it became a bit of a hassle. We ended up walking the 5 km, not a hard work out, but it was great to catch up with Leisl.
After the 5 km
Rock star pose!
Here we are after the 5 km! It was a lot of fun. Going through clouds of colour, bubbles and getting sprayed with water (so the colour sticks) was definitely different to your normal fun run. Now to see if I can get the colour off my shorts.....
Got to mention my awesome partner though for driving me there and for waiting for me and Leisl to finish the race!
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!

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.
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!
