draw something

I hope everyone in Australia had a nice Anzac day and remembered the Anzacs...what an awful cold day for them though!  The first wintery weather for the year hit us here in Melbourne yesterday and it was a bit of a shock to the system...I particularly felt it as I was up early to go to a leather workshop at the hub and out late at the patsyfox drawing salon.
I really haven't turned my hand to any serious illustration attempts since my undergrad fashion days, and I feel the pain every time I try to get ideas down on paper.  I've been thinking about it for a while, but decided to bite the bullet and get some skill brushing help from the wonderful Angie Rehe.
We started with drawing the fashion figure and here's some sneaks at my first attempts...I'm not quite ready to show full illustrations yet, just the bits I like best, plus the first lady was toppling off the page a little as kindly pointed out to me by Angie!

Angie liked the shoes in my second drawing so I'm showing you this bit...her face was a disaster!  We're doing faces next week, thank goodness!

Enjoy what you have left of the last public holiday that we have for quite some time peeps!


  1. Great to see these sketches! I love your lines so I can't wait to see what you draw over the next 8 weeks...
    What a great idea cropping is - I'm such a purist that I never think of it!
    So nice to have you in the classes : )

  2. Thank you lovely lady...looking forward to it myself xx

  3. Tan, I love your new look, the header images look great!

  4. Thanks bel, it's a slightly tedious work in progress! xx
