Painting my cake
Managed to finish the painting before the sorbet melted!

Hallo, hallo!  A very, very busy but good day today.  Gym in the morning at 7am, then I went and had a big brekky and worked on my second book and answered emails and discussed fix-ups with the client for the first book (so easy to do business with smart phones).  Afterwards, I met up with my friend Evelyn (instagram: @evelyn.yee) and we first sketched on a lawn near the Eureka Tower.  Well, she sketched bikes while I did more work and while we were there we got accosted by an adorable corgi.  I want a corgi now!  Anyway, we ventured off to the Belgian Beer Cafe (they make awesome Bloody Marys) and then we drew the GAYIP sculpture on the Southbank Promenade but it got too hot so we finished the colouring at Crown Casino food court.  I had to dry my piece at the ladies toilet using the hand dryer.  Then we finally chilled out at Hophaus where I painted a nice flourless orange cake with orange sorbet.  My last piece had no pencils and just straight watercolors.

It was a very good day today.  Tomorrow is a day of work though.  Need to get huge chunks of stuff done.  Finish off the first book and make more headway on the second book.

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: 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.

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!
