Hey guys

sorry I've been a little out of it, just finished of the book the other day and handed it in for printing, hopefully it will be done by Wednesday in time for class, AND I finished my essay (woohoo) so now I'm relaxing, doing some drawing and watching Toy Story 2, then its of to bed (I'm so tired I had a three hour granny nap tis afternoon ^_^

Hope you like this pic, the pose is inspired by one of Andrew Stanton's drawings (he did the designs for Lilo and Stitch) not sure about the colours, but I can always change them later

Colourful Mary

Hey everyone

As promised, I did this one up today in class, I've gone back to using illustrator, as I just wanted nice clean lines and some blocked in colour, I'm gonna put it in my book... probably shouldn't, but Meh ^_^

Thanks for visiting : )

Mary Mary quite contrary

Hey everyone

I was at work all day today then uni from 5 to 7 so I thought I'd take a bit of a drawing break tonight... I know I know
I should be doing my essay.. but I have 6 more days (very unlike me I know : )

Any way, hope you like this, the style is inspired by Sean Galloway, the character is my own though.. well mostly, the outfit is inspired by "The secret garden"

I didn't have time to finish it of, but I'll do it up nicely in flash or illustrator tomorrow... after some essay research ^_^

until next time...

The back, a back, what a back...

hey guys,

Haven't been doing much drawing unfortunately, just trying to get everything together with my book, but I did this for the back page, its the mirror image of the previous drawing... thanks again Ant for the inspiration

Hope you all enjoy,

and if your interested in seeing my book, make sure you stop by on the 26th at COFA - I'll be shamelessly carrying it around and stuffing it in peoples faces (I didn't manage to secure an exhibition spot in time)

- over and out

Almost there...

Hey guys and girls, robots, aliens and... anything or anyone else that stumbles on this blog

I did this today for the inner front page of my book, thanks to Anthony for giving me the idea, even though all your ideas have now doubled my work load ^_^
hope your all well and things aren't as crazy for you as they are for me... speaking of, my computer broke down the other day... so just passing on an important message... back up back up back up... and with that

until tomorrow : )

finger painting

Hey bloggers,

tried to upload this last night but blogspot was being slow... I drew the pic with pencil on paper (inspired by Annette Marnat) then coloured it in photoshop using my track pad : ) nothing like a bit of finger painting

Hope you all like it

Now for the book...

Hey guys

I'm back, and now things have wrapped up on the animation its time to move on to the book, unfortunately my In Design has gone all screwy the very day I need it (surprise surprise) so while I'm waiting for the wonderful ant to fix it I thought I'd start designing the title page and chapter separators

Hope you like what I have so far, I did this with the touch pad on my laptop again (I'm starting to get the hang of it)

catch you round!

Are you using this scanner?

these are kinda old, but I went on a massive scanning spree today for the book, and decided I may as well show some of them of... I ended up with waaay more pages than I thought I would... which is a good thing I guess, better too many than not enough

as always, comment if you can


just a quick shout out

Just thought I'd add a quick note, that the latest girl drawings have been inspired by the awesome Annette Marnat - find her at - http://marnette.canalblog.com/ - let me tell you its well worth it!

- ok thats all :)

staying between the lines...

Thought I'd do this one at uni as its about 50 times faster and more reliable to upload the pics... the bottom one needs a little work, but I thought I'd go old school with the top girl and use my good'ol faber Castel pencils... it came out better than I thought it would but I think I need more practice with my colouring in....been a while ^_^

thanks for visiting!

I'm Back... did you miss me?

Well as you can see from the title, I'm back from Brisbane and ready to jump straight into blogging... ok thats a lie, I got back on Friday so didn't technically get "straight into it" but considering I was extremely buggered I figured I'd catch up on some sleep so I could provide some more decent entries than what would have happened on Friday night (polar bear in a snow storm style) ^_^

Thanks Ant for the message, and thanks to those that hung around, as a present I give you a few sketches, some I did tonight and others just before I left... enjoy!

The one of the girl in the hat was inspired by the Dutches with Keira Knightley, if you haven't seen it already, do... its a great film, just the right amount of funny and sad... made me appreciate being a girl in this era a lot more : )
