Urban Sketching: Studley Park Boat House

Hi!  Was sooooooo cold drawing today.  Took me like 3 go's to get this drawing and I think I could do a lot better.  Hoping to come back here again when the weather is nicer and give it another crack.  Another no pencil piece and I had to draw this standing up while balancing the sketchbook on my left arm in the rain.  I had a really good time today though.  The people are really nice, there's a great variety of professions. ages and skill levels and experiences with everyone here.  I'm socializing a bit more now too.  I tend to zone out once am in the groove.  Urban sketching really is a lot of fun!!!  Hopefully my perspective will get better naturally!

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.
