KidLit Vic 2018 and updates






Hi, hi!  It's been a really long time since I last wrote on my blog, I know.  It's been difficult I must admit trying to keep my all my social media accounts updated and because blogging is more of a desktop thing than a phone thing, it has fallen by the wayside a bit.

Anyhoo, last time I wrote anything was before May 19, right before the Kid Lit conference this year.  It was a great event, I met up with a lot of folks I haven't seen for ages and met a lot of lovely illustrators and got some invaluable one on one advice from two publishers.  One of them even gave me her card and said to contact them once I have a proper website.  Food was provided, there were a lot of free seminars to go to in between the paid conferences. It was a very good day.  I went to 2 workshops too and it's great to get some information from that.  I would definitely go again next year.

What's been happening...well, work has been busy as usual but my team is doing exceptionally well this episode, am still going with outfits of the day, I really need to get on with doing my website and updating a few more social media things like Behance and Dribble and do other projects.  In all honesty though, it's a bit of a struggle and I'm just trying to keep one or two things going outside of work.

Mm...what else...have been socializing with quite a few friends, every weekend for the month of July has and is busy and we may have to do some Saturdays soon at the Studio.  Ah well.

And...I've managed to draw 50 outfits.  Yay!  Well, I'll try and write again tomorrow!

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!
