Hobart Sketch Trip: Journal Entry 03

Urban Sketching at Hobart, Tasmania by Marta Tesoro aka Rabbit Town Art

Yup...it's been a while since I last wrote!  Almost two weeks, in fact, sorry about that!  Though until I get to work from home more and not always in the studio, it's going to be this way for a bit.  The current project we're working on right now is almost finish, yay!  It's great to have work but it's also awesome when it's done and we can all see the results and have it sent out to the wild and I don't have to keep it under wraps any more!  Not that it matters too much, since most animation studios all seem to know what the others are working on but it's not wise to announce stuff in public yet.

I drew the drawing above ages ago!  While I was in Hobart.  Needless to say...I haven't done a whole lot of my own drawings after the trip.  I remember drawing this in the freezing cold as this was a bronze statue on the wharf.

What's been happening...working.  We're down to the nitty gritty for the current animation project at the studio.  I've been working on illustrating some toddler e-books after hours when am not too tired or I do a huge chunk on the weekends.  I find myself sleeping till quite late in the day now, on weekends.  Not because I always stay up late when I can, though this is a factor every now and then, but because I am just tired.  It's been a rather full on year thus far and it will just get more hectic!

I also went to a house party on the weekend and got given a lot of succulents for free!  YAY! I look forward to doing some planting on the weekend.  I've also bee using the slow cooker a lot.  There will be some nice pulled pork deliciousness and mash potatoes waiting for me after this blog post! 

Anyway, not much else to report.  I am super dull at the moment.  Hopefully I can do more fun stuff soon....or at least draw something of my own!

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.
