52 week illustration challenge: Week 35 Botany


Hi!  I entered this to the 52 Week Illustration Challenge last week (theme was Botany) and it's been used for something cool too... but it's a secret for now!

For other news.  Am really overloaded with work and been working around the clock.  I only leave the house for gym and to get myself some real food.  I survived on mostly coffee, nutella on toast, a banana and oatmeal today. I ate real food for dinner and only because there's a Japanese place next to the gym.  The dishes have piled up on the sink, the laundry needs folding and the trash needs taking out.  Been chained to the computer for hours and hours since Monday.  Two weeks before travel time and I need to get a lot of work done.  I do mean a lot....as in finished.  Madness I tell you.  Madness.  I also feel quite poor since I haven't seen a paycheck in over a month....close to two now. That's what happens when you take 2 week break from work and then finished a few jobs but not get paid until after two weeks.  Crazy times.  Crazy times....I need to save up more.  I truly do.

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: 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!

IF: Remedy

"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.
