Urban Sketching: Saigon (?) alley off Chapel Street Windsor

Hi!  I did this last week on one of my days off when I was delivering art work to an exhibition and before catching up with one of my friends.  Fun little alley to draw but I was not in the best position to do it so it's slightly rushed and I had to color at a cafe and not on the spot.  No room!

My short little holiday ended today and am back to working and animating.  I also have a few commissions I need to get through too.  Still sorting out two big jobs though...but it looks like since the timetables are now clashing that I will only be able to do one.  I just need proper confirmation.  It can get frustrating at times.  I wish jobs just lined up properly.  I tend to weigh up gigs based on who asked first, who have I worked with more and enjoy being with, payment is important but being happy is important too.  If I can juggle both, I would...though it will probably hurt me a bit.  Commercial work is very draining.

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


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: Mail

"Peggy was so surprised when she discovered that........"

This is my submission for Illustration Friday: Mail.  Thought I would leave it open ended for everyone else to fill in the blanks.

I haven't been able to submit for two weeks because of freelance work and it feels so nice to have something up for this week.  I am still on fashion illustration mode and enjoying it a lot.  Done in Flash and tweaked in Photoshop.
