Urban Sketching: Melbourne Emporium foodcourt

Hi!  Was out sketching today with a couple of my Urban sketcher mates and this was actually the second image I drew for today.  I wanted to try and refine the first one before posting it. This was at the Melbourne Emporium Foodcourt.  A place to draw and I captured what I could.  Colouring stuff becomes pretty difficult when there is a lot of detail.  I should also try to make my people look more real rather than cartoony as well.  A bit of a habit I must admit.

Been feeling a bit sick in my tummy since yesterday, stabbing pains.  Still feeling it a bit today but am recovering.  I suspect that it's a mild case of food poisoning.  Alas.  Anyway, going to bed early now and hoping am mostly recovered by tomorrow!  I have quite a bit of work to do as soon as I get up tomorrow morning.


  1. I like your cartoon-type people - there is still so much detail and they all look different.

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.
