 Hi!  It's been a while since I posted, I know.  This one is rather late since I was at this location last Saturday.  It was a lot of fun, walking, sketching and being outdoors in general.  I haven't been able to draw as much lately.  Probably only once a week.  I've been working at nights and on Sundays to get all my work done for the current project am working on.  It's been very tiring but the project is looking really good and it will be something that I will be proud to say that I was a part of.  Now...we just need to finish it and we can then enjoy the rewards (and the freedom) from it.

For other news, I am heading to Tasmania soon for a 4 day sketching trip! I am really looking forward to it.  I had to buy some fingerless gloves and wash all my winter apparel so I am warm while sketching!  Fingers crossed that it isn't raining...otherwise, it will all be interior drawings!

Okay...not long now till the day...where I can spend some time just drawing what I want to draw instead of drawing for others.  That said, I already have an e-book job to illustrate as soon as I get back!  It's good to have work.

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.
