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...

Drawing Request 08: A rancid baby teething on the enterprise while a stray shrink ray lies on the porch of the redneck family.

Day 34 and I've finally done another one of the drawing requests.  Only 2 more to go! This one is for my friend Peter Douglas, he requested this on facebook a while back, his request: A rancid baby teething on the enterprise while a stray shrink ray lies on the porch of the redneck family.  This was done with fineliners and brought into photoshop.

I am worried about what's going to happen after the pilot gig.  It's been really slow this year and with financial crisis looming...who knows what's going to happen.  I've never done any other sort of work that wasn't creative...with the exception of that one summer job I had working at a chocolate factory and admittedly that was fun.  Oh the chocolates...so many chocolates...ending up in my pocket (it was all perfectly legal, they encouraged workers to eat chocolates thinking that will make us all sick of it....obviously they didn't know that I could live solely on chocolates).   Anyway, I can't complain, I&…

Howdy!  It's been a while since i posted anything up on the blog.  My bad. I've been super busy with one job after another and I WAS doing a few drawing challenges too before I got overrun with work.

For news, I finished up with one of my animation jobs last Monday, started work at one of my regular studios on Thursday and we're working on a cartoon movie for DVD, did drawing and freelance illustration in between those days and caught up with a friend, somebody was being a jack ass on the tram and I let them know it.   Rob and I also watched Logan, a great movie and I would totally recommend it.

Today, I did a bit of work, received text from one of my employers about more work and we're about to enjoy the day in a country fair.  Well, if we make it in time.  I also cooked up pancakes this morning and it wasn't a disaster.

Our kitty Hanzo (changed from Dorian) is causing a lot of mischief and he likes to eat electric cables.  Guess we have to find something to stop…

Outfit of the Day 024

Hallo! This outfit was from weeks ago now when we did Formal Thursday.  First time I wore my hair in a bun and a long time since I appeared in business attire.  I find our weekly clothing themes so much fun.  I have a lot more to post here too.  I borrowed some earrings off Astri because I misplaced the earrings I was originally wearing.  Turns out I accidentally tucked it into my shirt.

Dean did the Photoshop goodness for the Jazz album rendition. 

Anyway, things have been busy with delivering episodes, my weekends and Fridays are now booked for the next 3 weeks with birthdays and I have a Kid Lit conference on the 19th.  Busy, busy, busy!  Trying to exercise and move more and not eat as much but it does get hard

I spent the weekend at a baby shower, doing my taxes and catching up with outfit of the day drawings.  I just finished number 33...pretty awesome.  I can't remember the last time I made over 30 using the same medium, subject and style.  Am pretty happy about that.  Now…
