Inktober Day 16: Blue Ringed Octopus

Hallo, hallo!  A decent day of drawing today but no masterpieces or anything. Still, it was good to catch up on Inktober...more or less.

Sometimes forget that people might actually read this blog.  It's kinda easy to fall into the trap that only I will ever read my actual posts and my when I get words of encouragement, it is very surprising to me.  A very good surprise though and probably what I needed to hear at the time.

I have been concentrating on my own projects and I get very frustrated when it doesn't turn out the way I want.  I am sure that most have felt this though.  I have started to slowly sort out some images for my shop and trying to source out music for my videos.  Stuff....

I am starting to feel worried about not working though.  I more or less might have something at the end of November, but I do feel I should start sending some emails out.  Maybe.  Hard to do my own work and do other jobs at the same time.  I freak out when am not working though.

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.
