Art Vs Artist April 2020

Daily sketch: honey


Hi!  Gone back to food diary and sketching the nearest objects (that may or may not have to do with food) around me.  I find it relaxing and I also control my food intake better when I write it down.  It's amazing how much food you can end up eating without knowing.  On another note, I've gotten addicted to Blood Mary's...without the vodka for the most part.  Tomato juice is really nice...then add Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, salt, pepper and lemon and a stick of celery to stir and to garnish.  Yum!  I wonder if I've gone over quota though...I've had like 3 glasses today!

Feeling burnt out since am a tad under the weather (darn temperature changes) and am a bit overloaded this week.  Finishing off Moshi, submitting 2 exhibition pieces, finishing an illustration job, got mounts done to send a commissioned framed piece to Tasmania, work emails, got to go and do an early vote...gah!  I actually had to skip training and Japanese today since I really wasn't feeling too well.  Bleh!  There are times when got to conserve the last bit of energy on the tasks that are most urgent or what relaxes....I need to sleep after doing this illustration...

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!
