Hey gang!

While I have heaps of artwork to show you, I'm only showing you this piece cos it's nice and quick. You see, I have my monthly deadline Monday and I have a bunch of work to do. I'm trying to not leave things to the last minute, but I'm not very good at it. That is, I'm not very good at not leaving things to the last minute. Hopefully I'm good at my job! My editor and I are going to try weekly deadlines from now on. Fingers crossed it should make everything much easier.

I have a fairly full weekend planned. It's my last 9 days in LA before I head home back to Australia for Xmas and there's so many people to see and do. I mean, people to see and places to do. Heh. Freudian slip. Just ignore that. But if you need "doing" before I leave LA just form an orderly queue to the left here.

So while I love you all, I'm leaving you with a brief one.

Ollie and I were concerned on the last page of Sum Quod Sum that people might not know where they were (go to the nav links and find the last page of SQS if you're not sure what I'm talking about. But if you're not sure what I'm talking about you're probably like most of the people I talk to - so everything's normal). I was worried my Lyle wouldn't look like Lyle and that we needed an anchor to ground people. I suggested we add a little photo of Claire and Noah in the corner so people would know where they are - the Bennet house.

When I draw photo inserts I generally draw them in a separate file (ie. piece of paper - but digital like) and then place them in as an indicator for Annette. She then colours the flat piece and then mimics my placeholder. This way we get the perspective perfect. It's very hard to draw flat images on perspective. The only artist I know who can do it is Frank Quitely - but he's a genius.

I'm not, so I do it this way.

I think it's one of the best Claires and Noahs I've drawn which is why it gets its own post.

Competition winners, please gimme til Monday. I think I've got you all now!

On Monday I wanna show you guys my Killeroo piece. And no, that's not a euphemism so just settle the hell down.

Now that you put that in perspective (without it, actually) its really cool to do those inserts in a separate file, so we can see them in their original form later :) Definitely worth its own post!

About the competition, no worries! Do your deadline first and then do the winners! :P
