Urban Sketching: Royal Exhibition Building and Gertrude Street

Houses I was drawing that was right across the cafe I was in on Gertrude Street, Fitzroy.

Royal Exhibition Building.  Right before the rain hit.

What on earth am I looking at?

Hi!!!  Urban Sketching was on again today!  I really am enjoying it and I look forward to drawing at different locations every Saturday.  It makes me happy and I am all for doing things that make me happy (that's legal and not harmful to others).

I used Copics and Mepxy markers again today.  The thing is about colouring on location is that I have to guess which colours I will most likely need at the time.  Makes it a little difficult.  A lot of folks use watercolours but I find that a bit iffy to do on location.  Too much waiting around for things to dry. I think I need a better marker bag...or more see-through pencil cases.

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.
