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: 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!

IF: Remedy

"Little Benny is off to remedy a pest problem" Howdy, When the theme "Remedy" for Illustration Friday came about, this came to my head.  I suppose I always had a thorough and maybe a tad bit on the overkill side when it comes to remedying certain problems.  I got bitten by bedbugs while I was in an Austrian hostel and this is exactly what I wanted to do...eradicate the nasty little creatures from the face of the planet.  This is hand drawn and then scanned into Photoshop for colouring. I went hiking again today. Went hiking in the rain and mud in the Dandeong ranges and treated myself to scones afterwards.  Not a bad day at all.  Keeping active and having a balance between work and staying at home all the time and just trekking outdoors really helps me focus on what I need to do.
