Mermay 2020: Thank you for the Meal

Thank You For the Meal

Here is another Mermay piece that is now available on my Redbubble Shop!  I drew her all digitally.  I'll have to go back and do more work digitally soon. I also really need to get around posting all the drawings I've been working on in my shop.  I suppose that will be my main mission, along with levelling up my skills, once the current production ends. 

It has been pretty busy and I've been doing freelance work as they come and working on my skull series. It has been good but I feel like there is just never enough time in the day.  I am looking forward to having a break later this year and actually studying all the courses I bought, while they were on sale.  In the meantime, I'll be working my tush off until then.

Second week of lock down here in Melbourne.  Got to say, it's been quite the downer not being able to see anyone or go anywhere. I know that I am in a fairly lucky position that I don't have kids to home school, my partner and I are still working, we're in a relatively safe area and we don't live in a shoe box. Still, I would like to see family, friends and go out to restaurants and go to an art store, buy some new clothes, all the fun stuff that many of us have taken for granted in the past, am sure. Who knew that this what 2020 was going to be like. Betcha no one thought they'd be living through a plague when 2019 ended.  Hopefully, we can go back to a normal where we are not required to stay home on weeks on end.  

How is everyone coping?  I am keeping busy, it's my normal state of being, really but that's how I am and how I cope with most issues.

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


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: 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.
