Urban Sketching: AAMI Park

Photo by Evelyn Yee

Hallo, hallo!  This is the first Melbourne Urban Sketcher meet up for the year last Saturday Jan 23.  I had a great time.  The weather wasn't with us though as it was drizzling and raining at the start of the meet up and then became all nice and sunny when the meet ended.  Tsk, tsk!  Melbourne weather.  We were actually suppose to draw tennis stuff at Rod Laver but because of the rain and lack of shade, a lot of us ended up sketching AAMI Park.  Ah well!   It was still a great day!  I spent the sketching session with my friend and fellow organizer Evelyn Yee  at a nearby cafe to draw the park and to keep out of the rain.

I also caught up with a friend and fellow animator from Sydney who is in Melbourne at the moment for a job after the sketch meet ended.  It was a great catch up and time flew by so quickly!  Afterwards I met up with Evelyn again.  Stuff about that in tomorrow's post!

Rob took me to another country town today, during my break from work, it was lovely and I had a great time.  We went for an hours walk in a walking track at the Botanical Gardens and then we went to very nice restaurant there.  I like Kyneton very much.  They shut stuff too early though!  Anyway, am now back on the computer and back to work!

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!

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…

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…
