A couple of Urban Sketch Photos

Some photos I found with me in it from last weeks Urban Sketching efforts.  I really did enjoy sketching at Mailing Road in Canterbury.  I really want to go there again.  So many cool shops to explore which I didn't get a chance to since I was too busy drawing.  When I get into the drawing zone, I pretty much stay in the drawing zone.

On another note, I really enjoy having blue green hair.  For starters, am really easy to spot in photos and I get complimented on it once a week at least.  It's good fun and it's become a trademark.  I think most of the Urban Sketchers know me by my hair alone.  It's pretty funny.  Am the green/blue haired one that's good with markers.  There are worse things to be known by.  Besides, it's nice to be easily recognized.  I think I will stick to the blue/green hair for a while yet!  My doctor, accountant and parents have been the only ones that don't agree with the hair, so far.....however I like it.  So it stays until am bored....or for as long as I can pull off the look.  Either or.

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!
