ArtBoyGallery Exhibition: Star Wars

 Hi!  So this Friday at the Artboy Gallery, Rob (my boyfriend) and I will  have pieces at the exhibition.  These are the work in progress shots for my piece.  It was close but we actually made it to deadline....with half an hour to spare.  There were so many problems with this piece!  I did it with acrylics on wood and that was a a bit of a mistake.  I am rusty and it's not that fast a medium to work on as it needs more than one underpainting to get the colors as intense as possible.  Aaaaagh!  So tough.  I had a varnishing mishap too were I put the varnish on too soon and smeared ink everywhere.  Managed to save it but I cracked it a bit, before saving it.  Luckily Rob was there to calm me down, otherwise I might have thrown it out the window.

Anyway, the exhibition is this Friday!  I am looking forward to it, a lot of friend will be there to chat to!

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.
