52 week Illustration challenge. Week 03: Retro

Hallo!  I drew this up last night for the 52 week illustration challenge, theme being Retro.  One of the first things that came to mind.  I used to have so many cassette tapes.  No idea where they are now.  I even had recordings from friends. Oh well.  Truly retro now these things.  I did this illustration really quickly and it did surprisingly well in terms of people liking it on social media.  I will never get what appeals and what doesn't appeal to people.  People are weird.

I may be ending at the current studio soon.  We shall see.  Being a specialist ( 2D animation), I tend to be needed on a project by project basis, so am quite used to flitting from one studio to another.  That said, I already picked up two big jobs today.  One is a very fast two week turn around (more illustration work) and two books with lots and lots of illustrations this time.  Pretty cool!

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.
