Urban Sketching: Melbourne Exhibition Centre and surrounds

Melbourne Exhibition Centre
Apartments from across the Yarra

Hi!  My efforts for today!  It was based in the city and there really is so much to draw in the city.  Quite amazing really.  I love Melbourne for it.  I want to draw across the river again...I may do that next Saturday which should be quite fun!

I was ony my own at the start for a couple of hours, drawing the Exhibition Centre on my own.  Afterwards, when the group arrived, a few of us decided to sketch at the Boathouse Deck cafe and it had an amazing view of these modern apartments and I felt like drawing them!

Lots of work (both freelance and contract)  done this week but still a lot to do.  There's a job I have yet to start.  Oops!  I better get onto that!

Ps...I bought a new panoramic pad yesterday too...much bigger than the other one!

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


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!
