Game 28 Round 10

Hi!  I drew this one up last night for Kookyrabbit.  I've been doing work since 7:30 am this morning and just cannot do any more work tonight.  My brain is fried.  Which is a shame cos I really wanted to get one project fully done before I need to work on another one tomorrow. Ah well.  I can only do as much as I can do in a day and I definitely got very far today and am in a safe-ish position.  Obviously I would rather be done already but again, if I can't do anymore, then I can't.

A few days ago it came under a discussion about making money out of art.  I don't really see myself making money out of art.  I find that art means that people buy my own creations, stuff I've done because I've wanted to do it over doing stuff for other people for money. I love it, don;t get me wrong.  I would rather do this than anything in the world, with the exception of being able to sell my own art and developing a real big fan base of people who support me by buying drawings I've done out of my own imagination.  That for me is making money out of art.

Saw this link on facebook today that drove that idea home.  Have a look at it.  It's from the guy that created Calvin and Hobbes.

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.
