I had a good run of sketches today!  I like everything I drew, which is pretty rare when I sketch up multiple pieces.  Melbourne University has so many buildings that are great to draw!  I would love to go back.  There was a building I spotted that I didn't get to draw today.  I started drawing at about 9:30 am and didn't really stop till about 4pm.  It was a great day.  Caught up with a lot of Melbourne sketcher friends and it was nice to just enjoy the sun and to relax a bit and to draw stuff that I want to draw, rather than what I am hired to draw.  It re-energizes me creatively.  Hanging out with creative people is very energizing too!

Tomorrow is all about work though!  Got to get my e-book done!

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!
