Urban Sketching: Port Melbourne (at the dock)

Port Melbourne at the dock.  My first ship drawing!

Hi!  So I drew the sketch on the beach and in the cold and wind last Sunday (06/07/2014) and there really wasn't a place to colour on site.  I coloured this up yesterday and unfortunately forgot to make a recording of it.  You know when you get really focussed on getting something done and you just forget everything else.  Well, I did that yesterday with this piece.  Am pretty happy with it.

Am wondering if I should create a tumblr blog with just my urban sketching adventures or if that's just too much...considering I have a facebook page, Twitter and an instagram page that am already trying to keep updated as much as I can.  That said, it would be nice to make a specific page for people to check out if they only want to see the Urban sketches.
 Hehehe!  Not the best photo of me but this was taken by the birthday girl (it was a beach party).  See the little structure connected to the dock on the water?  I was drawing there.

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


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: 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.
