Happy new year

I moved back to Adelaide last November-ish for anyone who doesn’t follow me elsewhere. This year I’m gonna stop trying to push my self in a billion different ways with art and just do more fun little illustration/doodles and animations that makes me happy. Health matters a heck of a lot too, I’m really into Vinyasa yoga. That’s all I have to say, here’s a dump.

Supanova Adelaide 2018 caricatures +sum up

I’ve been recovering after a full on weekend of drawing caricatures at Supanova con in Adelaide. I drew approximately 60 people, with at least 10+ people being repeat customers from past years!

This is the only con I’ve done all year, because I got a bit exhausted keeping up with the whole fanart merch making craze, and decided to mostly focus on honing my skills as a caricaturist.

Supanova runs the most efficient and well organised cons out of all the aussie ones I’ve tabled at, and I hope it continues in Adelaide well into the future! I got 5 chairs AND a great corner booth to draw my caricatures off of, so thanks to the great people volunteering and managing the event.

I learn so much from every single caricature I draw and am REALLY grateful to everyone brave enough to sit down and be drawn by me.  Even if sitting for a stranger seems weird, trust me it’s way scarier drawing a stranger in 10 minutes! (and to meet a high expectation for the drawing! )

I’m glad people get a kick out of watching me draw and getting a traditionally inked and coloured drawing. There is something really satisfying about starting my timer and trying my best to capture the people/person in front of me. The girl in the first pic has been getting a caricature from me for the last 4 Supanovas (since 2015), so I must be doing something right!

Don’t know which aussie cons I will apply for next year, or can be bothered travelling to, but we’ll see….until the next one!

‘end of august existential art dump’

Jokkinggg. It’s just THE END OF AUGUST. Crazy how time flies, but I’m having a fine time drawing cartoons every day for a living so it’s all good.  My only issue is there’s so little time to sketch, study and experiment with all the mediums and things I want to draw and make..sigh. Thought I’d dump all this miscellaneous old art here before I just never post it. I try to post most on twitter and intsagram but lately just don’t feel like sharing much….more fun to hide away on WordPress.
