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!

Hello! Hello!  Some news!  I was on TV a few weeks back, April 07 to be precise, to represent Moshi with Christien Clegg and Dale Andreson for Space Chickens!  It was really good fun.  The hosts Lauren and Andy were super nice.  I was quite nervous, there wasn't a lot of warm up before filming and it was all very spontaneous.  We were advised to just run with any mistakes made. smile and just have a lot of energy!

Dale and I had a couple of draw offs while Christien refereed and described Space Chickens and  animation.  There were some really weird topics that we had to draw for the last segment, I had to draw a chicken doing taxes on the sun (with Andy) and a Pelican doing the lambada on a shooting star. We only had a minute each for each drawing.  It was crazy to say the least.  I did enjoy myself though.

The pictures below were taken by our Producer that accompanied us to the shoot!

In the first drawing,, where we had to draw the chickens, I was like grabbing colors to color m…

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.
