Urban Sketching: Hotel Windsor

Coloured version
Black and White version
Me, at the scene.

Hi!  I was sketching the Hotel Windsor yesterday on Spring Street.  I've been told to try the high tea there before they close down the area for repairs.  The Urban sketcher group where actually taking the week off this week but Evelyn invited me out to come and sketch for a bit before heading to my birthday drinks!  My birthday isn't for a few days yet but I suspect am going to be working flat out this week. 

One of my friends thought that I didn't need to colour the piece so I made sure to scan in the black and white version before colouring.  I think it turned out really well and am most pleased.  It got really cold yesterday am drawing, standing up and leaning on a pole, balancing my book in one hand and freezing.  I do love drawing outdoors though!  Lots of fun! That's going to get really cold here in Melbourne soon and I may need to invest on some fingerless gloves.

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.
