Red Forest Jewel Cichlids
Hallo!  It's been a few days since I last wrote.  Things have been busy! 

This is a Red Forest Jewel Cichlid.  I do love drawing fish.  There are bunnies hidden, can you find them all?  Colored with markers and inked with indian ink and a dip pen.

What's been happening....I misplaced Rob's passport in 2015 and we spent 3 nights looking for it and we found it in a bag full of old Japanese pamphlets in his study cabinet.  What a relief, I was super duper stress.  I was suppose to put it in a safe box, but since I just recently moved in I made a mistake.  Oh well, all is good now!  I never want that to happen again though.  It was not a pleasant experience.  I was finally paid for a job that I finished ages ago, I picked up another e-book job and I might be booked all of July, shortly after my current contract ends in June.  Then I'll probably be contracted for a series job in August.  Busy, busy!  There's so much stuff happening this year.  Rob and I are also sorting flights for a trip we're taking later in the year and I need to sort out our itinerary.  I have also started drawing my lucky cat collection.  I've drawn 7 so far.  I'll post them here in the coming days.  That said, because I haven't been posting regularly, I actually have a backlogged of drawings to put up.  Sorry, some days I just don't want to talk about stuff.

What's on in the next few days: I have to do some work after hours for the e-book job, a friend of mine is visiting from Canada and is staying over for a night this coming week, I have a BBQ tomorrow and studio works.  Lots of it.  I am really enjoying the job.  I've been doing character design and turn-arounds as well as coloring.  It's definitely a lot of fun and I am enjoying myself!  I can't wait to announce the project!  Sadly, until it's released, I can't really say much.

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.
