Only good pic for the Alleycat piece

Me colouring at the Alleycat
A very fun and awesome day of sketching and socializing, followed by a great night celebrating a birthday and karaoke.  It was such a beautiful day that I made sure to absorb as much sunshine as I could!

Some exciting news, the piece I did at the Alleycat Cafe off the Mailing Road in Canterbury sold on the spot.  I was sketching in the cafe with one of my urban sketcher friends and I was drawing the interior when the owner saw the piece and asked to buy it after I was done drawing.  I actually sold it on the spot, immediately after finishing.  It was great!  Never had that happened before and I am very pleased.  Very cool to make back to back sales with art!

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!
