Hallo, hallo!  These were the first drawings I did this year but I haven't posted them on here.  My bad!  I went to Japan after Christmas and I didn't really write about my trip on the blog.  I was working on the Shopkins Wild movie, as Animation Supervisor, when I went to Japan.  I booked the trip in April after the Shopkins World Vacation movie project.  When I came back in January, the project has wrapped up.  I helped do some fixes but then I was pretty much on Space Chickens in my new role as Animation Team Lead, the role I am currently in.

Anyway, one of the things I did do while I was in Japan was buy lots of Lucky Cats or Maneki Nekos on my trip.  I love them.  I like what the represent and just the look in general.  I do love kitties as well, after all.  Well, I bought over a dozen and I actually would love to buy more when I go back.  My partner collects sword replicas and I collect maneki nekos.  I think I've got about 40 or so at home.  I haven't drawn all of them either.  I'll get around to it!

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.
