Today's sketch - day 4 ....

That Hippy guy...

Maybe one a day was a bit optimistic - maybe I should make it once a week to make sure I can keep up with it.... its not the drawing and sketching thats the problem, its uploading it to the PC every evening :)

Todays sketch -day 3

Back to school today for many Aussie kids after Christmas holidays. Back to work for me after 4 days off too. Its been a bit of a scorcher here - in the 40s. A dip in the kiddy pool with Miss A was just what I needed when I got home today :).
Very excited this evening as I ordered the 'Drawn to Life' Golden years of Disney master classes books and they arrived today and Ive barely cracked the first one and I lovvvvveeeeee it! :)
Anyway, here are two little sketches to celebrate back to school.... dedicated to all our little friends who are this year starting school for the first time xx

Its Australia Day!

Happy Australia day to my country men and women. To me, some of the most wonderful aspects of the Australian culture are the sense of 'mate-ship',  giving everyone a fair go, standing up for the underdog, being laid back and a having a great sense of humour. I hope we always keep that! ××

Once a jolly swag-man camped by a billabong, 
under the shade of a coolibar tree...

In honour of Australia day... well because i really want to progress with my illustration, I have decided to do some form of art /illustration every day for 12 months ( i think I have done this before and i think I usually last a few weeks before full time work and other things get in the way....).  This time I am going to give it a good go, try to go from this Australia day to  next Australia day. 

They won't always be elaborate or maybe even that good, but no harm can come from daily practising:).    I really want to improve my artwork, get my skill levels up and basically have fun and see how much I can progress my abilities .... so ....   

here I go! 


Illustration Friday - disguise

There were those that thought the Big Bad Wolf 
was enjoying his new look just a little too much! 

When you think of disguise you can't go past the BBW in my opinion!

Illustration friday-search.

That terrible moment when Susan realised the last time she saw her car keys was when little Johnny had been playing with them.

Dont know it should be 'search' or 'panic'
