Urban Sketching Art Town: Yellow Bird Cafe

Hi!  I did some drawings today and I've decided to split it up to two posts.  Today was the start of Art Town.  A fun and artistic events that goes for 4 days (2 weekends split up) where artists are drawing all over the street and have the chance to exhibit one art piece (if they registered before the due date).  This was the first of two drawings I did today.  I was hoping to do more but it didn't work out that way.  Oh well. It's not a race.  I drew the line work on location and finished the coloring using reference photos in the afternoon. The place was getting crowded and because the loights were so dim, it was hard for me to color.

I did this in the morning over breakfast before meeting up with the other sketchers.  My pancakes and coffee got cold in the process because I kept on drawing more than I was eating, but it was still delicious.  If you're on Chapel Street, Windsor area, make sure to check out this gem!  Totally awesome joint with good food.

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.
