Urban Sketching: State Library

State Library
Before Colouring

Hello!  Despite having a huge workload, I decided to take a bit of time off today by Urban Sketching on my own.  No group today as most of the group are taking the long weekend.  Lucky.  I am doing no such thing.  Too much to do!  I did need to chill though.  Saturday is my day for sketching.  If I can fit it on a Sunday, I do!  I have a lot of areas on my list to draw.  I love being with the group but I do enjoy sketching on my own too.  There is one thing I learned though, drawing earlier in the morning is better than later.  Less people for starters and that helps when am trying to find a good spot to draw.  I was on uneven terrain trying to draw the library.  I actually want another crack at it on a better spot next time.  The sun just happened to be blasting at the very spot I wanted though which makes me think that if I want an optimal view of the library, I need to start drawing around 8-9 am.  Ah time! finish inking some illustrations for a job before bed tonight!  I never stop....never....

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.
