Happy Mothers Day 2016!

Hi!  Mothers Day today!  A big shout out to all the hard working moms out there and especially to my own mom!

One of the early memories I have with my mom was baking chocolate chip cookies.  She did a lot of cooking and baking when I was a kid but I don't remember being in the kitchen often...but I do remember that chocolate chip cookies was something we did do together.  I think I got my love of baking from her.  She's a total gun with it and I do miss her baking (and her cooking) absolutely fantastic.  She is a superwoman.  A great artist, fantastic cook, achieved a lot in life, multi-talented, awesome gardener, flower arranger, calligrapher, craftsman (we're talking about someone that built a Christmas lantern out of plastic spoons and can make it look super expensive), saleswoman, baker, amazing woman.  Very grateful I have her as my mom.

Happy Mothers Day, Mama!

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


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.
