Urban Sketching: Fitzroy GardensCook's Cootage
Hi! Was Urban Sketching with the sketchers today at Fitzroy Gardens. It was lovely and I would have loved to have drawn inside the Conservatory but it was too crowded. Inside is extremely pretty though. Gorgeous flowers. Today was a lot of fun and I thought I would change it up by not drawing in my regular long format book and no markers! All watercolours today on my antique book! I must say that I am running out of pages in my book and need to get a new one. Or I could draw on normal paper for a while and not freak folks out on how am desecrating a book. Yes, this book was printed in the 1930s, a proper antique but seriously...it was all tatty already and I bought it specifically to draw on since the pages were pretty thick. Now to find another book with thick pages again....or music sheets. Been wanting to draw on old music sheets....
"Little Benny is off to remedy a pest problem" Howdy, When the theme "Remedy" for Illustration Friday came about, this came to my head. I suppose I always had a thorough and maybe a tad bit on the overkill side when it comes to remedying certain problems. I got bitten by bedbugs while I was in an Austrian hostel and this is exactly what I wanted to do...eradicate the nasty little creatures from the face of the planet. This is hand drawn and then scanned into Photoshop for colouring. I went hiking again today. Went hiking in the rain and mud in the Dandeong ranges and treated myself to scones afterwards. Not a bad day at all. Keeping active and having a balance between work and staying at home all the time and just trekking outdoors really helps me focus on what I need to do.
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! 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!
