Urban Sketch: Old Treasury (unfinished still)

Hi! I always colour on site but I wasn't able to this time for this building and I was hoping to colour it this week but I just haven't had the time.  I've been so busy with freelance and full-time work.  Been a bit on the mental side.  Now, I wasn't able to finish this one, simply because it really was starting to get way too cold and dark and I was drawing on the sidewalk, right next to the road and colouring on a sidewalk next to a busy road, really isn't ideal (that said, I have done it before).  This one posed a lot of problems for me and I made quite a few mistakes (you can actually see it if you compare the drawing to the building in the photo) and stairs...drawing that without any support was mental! 

Anyway, am looking forward to Urban Sketching once again this Saturday.  Am hoping that if the weather isn't kind, I can find shelter and still have a good view of an interesting building.

Some journal entries!

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

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!

IF: Remedy

"Little Benny is off to remedy a pest problem" Howdy, When the theme "Remedy" for Illustration Friday came about, this came to my head.  I suppose I always had a thorough and maybe a tad bit on the overkill side when it comes to remedying certain problems.  I got bitten by bedbugs while I was in an Austrian hostel and this is exactly what I wanted to do...eradicate the nasty little creatures from the face of the planet.  This is hand drawn and then scanned into Photoshop for colouring. I went hiking again today. Went hiking in the rain and mud in the Dandeong ranges and treated myself to scones afterwards.  Not a bad day at all.  Keeping active and having a balance between work and staying at home all the time and just trekking outdoors really helps me focus on what I need to do.
