Urban Sketching: Government Building

Hello, hello! Was at the Botanical Gardens today with the rest of the Melbourne Urban Sketchers (the meetup is getting big) and I decided to draw the Government Building with a few of the others.  It was a lot of fun!  Quite a few friends came today too from Studio Moshi.  It was a good day all around!

I took the big panoramic sketch book today and it takes me forever to draw and it really is quite cumbersome to bring around.  With that book, I need to be sitting down (tried to draw standing up and it hurt my left wrist) and with a table and if I don't have a table, I need to draw in portrait so I can use my legs to support the weight.  I was also trying to pencil today and it really doesn't work for me.  As soon as I ditched the pencil, things flowed much better!

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


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: 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.
