Everyone, gather around!  Photo by Kym S.
Was so cold today!!!!  Why can't it be sunny when am out sketching??!?  Why?!?!  That said, it was really nice to be outdoors and away from the computer for a good few hours.  It's nice to be able to draw my own thing once in a while.  Anyhow, I've got to draw the Parliament Building next time.  There's just  so many nice places in Melbourne to draw.  If I get a week or two off once my contract is done, am going to spend most of my days sketching all over the city and maybe even venture out into the country like Bendigo (which is suppose to be amazing for old buildings) and I would love to go and spend a few days in Daylesford to draw and explore the area too.  So many things I want to do and not enough time immediately to do it all.

I've been working around the clock lately.  A lot of stuff is due this month and I think it's because of tax time.  I really wish I could clone myself sometimes.

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.
