Lonsdale Street, view from the Emporium food court

Lonsdale street, view from Emporium food court level 02

Me by the window, enjoying the sun as I draw.  I got to sit down instead of standing up!
All coloured up.  sunning myself indoors!

This took forever!!!  No pencils once again, done with a 01 Staedtler pen and coloured with staedtler fineliners and mepxy and copic markers.  Whoo! I spent my whole morning drawing this piece.  The pieces are not very big at all, like half an A4 size and yet this took me hours to get done.  This took almost 4 hours!!!  I should do bigger and more finished pieces at home, based on the sketches I do when am out and about.  I was onn my opwn sketching in the morning and I couldn;t go to the bathroom or eat until the piece was finished, otherwise I would have lost my spot!  Priorities, I know.

I spent the whole day drawing recreationaly and eating too much and therefore spending too much.  I was out with urban sketching friends and it was so lovely to spend the whole day with them.  There are some developments with the urban sketching and it involves me so more news on that later when it comes to fruition. I  need to be good (as much as possible) this week to make up for the spending though!  After all, my contract for animating Psychobutts ends shortly and I'll be in freelance limbo or madness, whichever one, again.  I do enjoy this whole going from place to place and drawing though!  However, once the job ends, perhaps bringing packed lunches or breakfasts would be ideal.

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: 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

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!
