SupaNova 2010

Last Weekend Melbourne Supanova 2010, was choc full of twilighters sadly. People with plastic fangs and signs saying do not take photos of this Twilight Store Display. Over exorbitant prices on mostly everything and the special 'Supanova' prices were more expensive than those you can find in your local store. However I did manage to get a few little objects that I am now having to take home.

A Fertility Idol Money Box, A Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Piggy Bank, Fourth Doctor Action Figure and old style vinyl Wario.

My Friend Chris Downes Flew over and made it in time for the last few hours on sunday, as the women swooned for him.
Waiting in Line to meet LOTR & StarTrek star Karl Urban, I was so geeked out but just never mention Xena.
I have the worst geek face in the world, but thats artist Extraordinaire George Perez. You had to pay to be on a list to get a sketch dammit.

The Brides 75th Anniversary

In 1935 a movie would come along that would give hope to the movie sequel that indeed you could have a great follow up story. The Bride of Frankenstein was born and the best girl ever created.

Eating with Angela

I've been in Melbourne for a week so far, It went from Kinda Bad to really Awesome during that time. Supanova was a bit busy this year particulary saturday where I tried to talk to people. They really didn't show and most totally flaked. Sunday picked up with the my friend Chris flying over from tassie to checkout the small press artists alley thank goodness he rescued me from infinite Twilighters. Although I did buy some cool stuff but to me professionally Supanova was a Bust.
Talking about 'Bust' my friend Angela White has a great one and not only that but she has a brain to go with it....I know Unbelievable Huh?? I must admit to being somewhat nervous when meeting Miss White. Despite having met other Models and big Hollywood Directors she's feisty and honest which I admire alot. I have used her images and poses for my own art and whenever I get a little stale or short on inspiration I look at some of her poses, curves and funness (is that a word?) and get inspired all over again. I enjoyed our hour long talk over lunch with this pure Mistress of Delight explaining my concept of 'Red Licorice' 100 of the worlds most beautiful women captured in one book and I think she said yes to being in it as well as the covergirl, but I'm not sure as I was hypnotised by her true beauty and funny wit. A rare commodity. Actually I'd hazard to say shes the most interesting aussie girl I've ever had the honour and pleasure to have met and I truly mean that, Thanks Angie!

Scuttled Part Three

Another doodlie for a defunked project, no not mine. I'm working on something but as always it just seems to take for ever to finish. I need to be more measured with my time.

Scuttled Part Two

Continuing on from a now defunct project (atleast for me) Its a fine Line as to knowing what people want, to what they actually get. I try to sketchout Ideas on Paper using the description they give and then show them to clients. Using Bits and Pieces of what they Like while discarding any unwanted stuff and filling it with the new and continue with this until Eventually you have a character close to there vision.
However Sometimes you are expected to get it right first time, and this is hardly the case. Especially for Major Characters, while creating Extras a Much less Insignificant Character you have a lot more Room to Move.

Scuttled Part One

Some projects fall by the way side, while others are just terminated unexpectedly from another source. Heres one just example a balding jewish looking guy in his 30's a design I have no further use for.
