I'm still here folks......I've just been distracted by all the art work I've to do. I'm nearly finished the front cover illustration for the Children's books - there was a slight delay as I'm doing them in colour and discovered that I didn't have enough colours in my arsenal so had to go out and buy some more which was harder than I had imagined!!! Once it is finished and sent I should be able to give you a link to the website.....watch this space!!!
My commissioned piece is going well (now).....I had a bit of a disaster with it.....I had been working on it solidly for four days and every time I looked at it I felt that there was something not quite right with it. I have no idea what that something was but it was annoying me so much that I started again!! Actually, that's not as bad as it sounds cause I could use most of what I already had so it wasn't like I was starting completely from scratch - I am much much happier with it now!!!
We're been out and about too - I tried real Japanese food for the first time and absolutely loved it!! I had a chicken teriyaki set which is chicken teriyaki (now there's a surprise), miso soup (which is a clear soup with tofu and spring onions) and rice....it was really good!!! We went to the cinema to see Wanted which was made by the same Russian director that did Night Watch (Don't be put off by the pic - it's not really a horror movie) and Day Watch so it had some really fantastic effects, we went back to the Saxophone bar at Victory Monument which is just fab (not been for ages and I had forgotten how much I liked it) and I finally got to see the Sex and The City Movie and I have to say that I loved it - No, Chris didn't watch it he went to the pub and Marissa and I watched it in her apartment with nibbles and wine....a rather lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
