Royal Arcade sketching group!
Hi!  Totally awesome day today!  Urban Sketching, out and about!  My piece took me almost 4 hours to do!  It was madness.  I was at this cafe in one spot the whole time.  The waitress loved the piece (but couldn't afford the original) so I let her take a photo of it.  Ah well!  She was nice enough not to ask for the table back even when the cafe got very busy so all good! 

A good day today but I ended up feeling sick for drawing too long, without a break, so only one sketch done today and am busy tomorrow with sorting out my taxes and seeing friends for a BBQ in the afternoon so I may not get a chance to draw tomorrow either.  Oh well.  It will all work itself out.

My parents came over today and mum helped me cook which was lovely!  I don't enjoy cooking when I have other things to do I guess...and dinner tonight was very good!

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: 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.

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!
