No more birthday posts...at least for now haha. Besides all the blog birthday's, I had a lot of family members and friends who had their birthday. October has always been a busy and festive month. I would like to thank you all for visiting, commenting and your lovely birthday wishes! I always love to hear what you guys think and I really appreciate it that you take the time to tell your thoughts! So if you have suggestions or ideas of what you would like to see...just let me know.
Even though I had many birthdays; school and sketching are always there. School is usually hovering around me (like a stupid fly you can't get rid of!) and no matter how often I try to ignore it, I always hear a little voice
'TJ...TJ...you have to read a your articles...TJ...Helloooo...We know (the 'we' are my books -_-) that you can hear us'...
Yes, I can tell you, it's annoying. But I do it anyway, otherwise it will bug me for the rest of the day (I wanted to say 'for the rest of my life...but please no :|). Also the orders for illustrations are dripping in! I'm so excited about this! So my days are filled with tons of stuff.
I can tell about a lot of stuff that happened during the last few weeks, but that is going to be a long post! So I will divide it and have a random rambling post. Let me start. In this post I shall show you guys a few illustrations that I was requested to do ^_^.
The first one, I did a few weeks back and it was for another blogger, Japaul. He is writing a story and he really wanted an illustration about the main character. He had send me two chapters of his work and I could choose whatever scene I wanted to create an illustration. This is a quick illustration I came up with.
The second one, was for a sweet lady named Paula. Ooh I got soo mad at the mailman *shakes fist*! Okay not for real. That wasn't possible. But I found out about the fact that the package was wrinkled when Paula send me an email that she got her illustration....all wrinkled! I was like 'Noooooo! That can't be!' (shaking fist in the air continues...). I'm kinda a perfectionist and when I do something for someone, I want to do that as perfect as possible. A wrinkled illustration is a definite NO...*sigh* -_-'. But I want to make up to her, so she gets a design for a Christmas card from me ^_^!
Another requested illustration had two cool themes; New York and a Mini Cooper. It was for a birthday for the daughter of the customer. So I combined these two and this is what I came up with:
Have to say, the scan doesn't do the coloring justice...for both illustrations. It looks different in real life. Oh yeah, if you enlarge the pictures, you see more detail.
Last but not least, I got a two other blog awards from Nicx and TimeThief! Really many many thanks! It's always nice that people think of you! I try to post them up soon and answer the questions that go along with the award(s), but I thought I would mention it. I didn't forget about it!
For now, my dear readers, this is it. But there will be more, so stay tuned!
