Art Vs Artist April 2020

Illustration Job: E-book ( one of the pages, rough version)



This is a version before I made quite a few changes on it.  The pattern on the cat doesn't look like that anymore for starters and more textures were added and etc.  Am not allowed to show the finalized versions but I had permission to put up the drafts and roughs on my blog.  This was a style test.  I hand drew the image and coloured and texturized in Photoshop.  I love hand drawing and fixing stuff digitally.  Best of both worlds, I think!

I am actually working on this job now.  A quick break while I have Milo and write up this piece.

Today...was not a good day.  I was terrible at training today.  Just awful.  My trainer called the session short, I was so bad.  I guess I have a few things on my mind and my diet and lack of excercise last week, did not help this week.  I also got some rather icky news from TAX.  I am going to be paying another hefty amount shortly.  It has put me into major saving and searching for jobs mode.  I have some major doubts that I will ever get a place to call my own but am going to give it a good crack anyway.  It's all I can do right?  It has made me feel really uncertain and when am undertain, I get very pessimistic about everything.  Not good and am trying to get out of this mindset.  I hate taxes though.  I hate it so much.

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: 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.

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!
