A new business venture coming soon....

Inktober 2017: Betty Blueberry and life and stuff


Wow...it's been a while since I last wrote.  Close to a month!  I have been doing Inktober this month but I am not very far behind and have run out of imagination, it would seem.  I was attempting to do a theme of "fruity witches" and hiding a bunny in the picture.  Can you spot it?  I may have to call it quits though, am exhausted!

I haven't started my first week as an Animation Supervisor in a current studio job,  and though I am enjoying it, I do find it challenging.  There is a lot to think of and keep track and the real work hasn't really started yet, in my opinion, this is just a warm up.  I am sadly finding that I can't seem to do much drawing when I get home.  The increased workload, on top of the travel time, is making it a tad difficult for me to remain productive at the end and am also answering any emails that came about while I was traveling to go home since I leave before every one else does.   

What else has been happening...I've been buying too much books...but I love books.  My wish list on book depository is very long.  I keep ordering though.  I am still after James Jean: "Rift" and am spewing that this book I saw years ago, "Art of Yuko Shimizu", was about $60 and money for me was tighter then and now that I've tried to find and buy the book it's now $200 or more.  Insanity! Oh well, luckily, there are plenty more art books that I like and enjoy browsing though as much as I like collecting it.  

The family has had a few birthdays and I've gone to friends exhibitions and I've had a few social gatherings during Friday pub lunch at work and after hours. I still have a life!  I've dropped freelancing after hours for a few weeks now and it's probably not wise for me to pick up anything else while am in a supervisor position...the project will end after all and my role will switch again, depending on the project.  Busy periods in general always end, so am just trying to squirrel away but also enjoy the abundance of work while it is there!

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: 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.

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!
