Game 28 Round 04: Hello there!


Hello!  Today is the last day of the Easter Break and we had a few Easter items for Kookyrabbit.  I don't do a lot of pin ups but I do find them enjoyable!

That said, it hasn't been much of a break.  Been doing a lot of work but it has been good! I got a lot done and have managed to have some drawing time for myself too.  The working day is not over for me yet though.  I have a few more things I need to design or animate before I can call it quits for tonight.  That's what happens when you take more than one gig.  Maybe I will take a breather after this is all done.  I haven't had a chance to fish for more new jobs so it might happen anyway.  Eek!

 I do love working and freelancing but I am coming to a point where I realize that I need to start making a push towards my end goal.  Artists don't really retire unless they have to and I would rather not end up in that category...however..we all get old.  That's just a fact or we die before we can get to that stage.  I would like to be able to sell my own work autonomously through websites and galleries as well as doing more paintings and private commissions in the future.  I haven't done a whole lot in that front and I would like to but I admit, it's not something I am positive I can succeed in. I would like to try though!   I just can't stomach turning down well paid and interesting projects as of yet and I know that at some point, to work towards another goal I might just have to bite the bullet.  Or work myself to the ground.  Either, or.
Hope everyone had a good Easter!

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.
