Saibu no Akuma Exhibition: Blurring the lines of Bespoke


























Hi!  So first of all, everyone needs to support Saibu no Akuma  and to check out their website and philosophy.  They are shirt tailors located in Melbourne and they do really cool stuff.  I met the guys from Saibu no Akuma when I was doing some urban sketching on my own at Fitzroy  last year.  You should check out their blog! Some cool stuff in it, including me!  Anyway, they had their Kickstarter campaign and exhibition yesterday and I was doing live drawing there and here are the results!  I have never done this sort of thing before and it was very tiring and a lot of fun.  The whole concept was to draw people while they weren't looking but before long, people started requesting for drawings and suddenly there was a queue.  I was very lucky to have Rob there to tell me to take breaks and make sure I was still drinking since I because really flat out.  He even helped with one of the pieces when I was getting quite tired in the end (Tony, the guy in blue and his girl friend in black).  I didn't have enough colours to match everyones skin tone which was frustrating and I didn't have naxy blue so alas, not the most accurate today.  I need more skin tones...bah! 

It was great fun, everyone seemed to enjoy it and it was a good experience for me.  I probably should draw more people when am urbansketching for practice.  Am still doing more drawings for them on the side but this time, i get to draw from photos and not at a manic pace..so let's see the difference, shall we?

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!

Howdy!  It's been a while since i posted anything up on the blog.  My bad. I've been super busy with one job after another and I WAS doing a few drawing challenges too before I got overrun with work.

For news, I finished up with one of my animation jobs last Monday, started work at one of my regular studios on Thursday and we're working on a cartoon movie for DVD, did drawing and freelance illustration in between those days and caught up with a friend, somebody was being a jack ass on the tram and I let them know it.   Rob and I also watched Logan, a great movie and I would totally recommend it.

Today, I did a bit of work, received text from one of my employers about more work and we're about to enjoy the day in a country fair.  Well, if we make it in time.  I also cooked up pancakes this morning and it wasn't a disaster.

Our kitty Hanzo (changed from Dorian) is causing a lot of mischief and he likes to eat electric cables.  Guess we have to find something to stop…

Hello! Hello!  Some news!  I was on TV a few weeks back, April 07 to be precise, to represent Moshi with Christien Clegg and Dale Andreson for Space Chickens!  It was really good fun.  The hosts Lauren and Andy were super nice.  I was quite nervous, there wasn't a lot of warm up before filming and it was all very spontaneous.  We were advised to just run with any mistakes made. smile and just have a lot of energy!

Dale and I had a couple of draw offs while Christien refereed and described Space Chickens and  animation.  There were some really weird topics that we had to draw for the last segment, I had to draw a chicken doing taxes on the sun (with Andy) and a Pelican doing the lambada on a shooting star. We only had a minute each for each drawing.  It was crazy to say the least.  I did enjoy myself though.

The pictures below were taken by our Producer that accompanied us to the shoot!



In the first drawing,, where we had to draw the chickens, I was like grabbing colors to color m…
