Two whole months ago I was invited to do a mural for the ELLERY trunk show in Perth and just now I am posting, tsk tsk. I had the lovely Cheyne Tiller-Daly photograph it for me (now you all know what I look like too, eeek). Easily one of the best jobs (and nights!) I have had and so flattered Kym likes my work as much as I like hers. I drew three of my favorites from the night. See more photos from the event here and here.

A couple of nights ago I participated in a Perth illustrators sketch group at 399 Bar. It was great fun meeting everyone and drinking wine and chatting about art stuff because I don't have many friends I can do that with (which can sometimes be a positive thing too). I brought a copy of Vogue Italia (supplement) Sep 2006 and did some 30 min, randomly picked couture images. This is the 1st.

I have been going to lots of life drawing classes lately and the thing I love most about them is the warm up time. Having to put down something in 30 seconds and 1, 2 and 5 minuets. So today I did a 30 min sketch of Abbey Lee. I gave myself 2 mins for initial pencil layout, 10 mins for ink and the rest for filling in detail with charcoal pencil. Now for a colour one...

Promised you! The second illustration of Arizona. Now I can move on to the rest of the 'Draw It NOW' file. I'm liking this technique of laying down watercolour then drawing over the top in colour pencils so will continue on with that till I get bored of it again!

I have a permanent file on my desk-top called 'Draw This'. I put all the images I come across and fall in love with in it. Nothing ever gets drawn. I get bored of them so quickly, so, the file has been re-named 'Draw This NOW'! Arizona went in there this morning and came out this afternoon! She is A3 so excuse the photo instead of a scan, off to do another one!
