be right back

I'll be (yet again) going somewhere for about a week. This is probably the last time in a long time.
I'll be going to Hawaii! It's my first time, but I don't really do well with hot weather, so I hope it goes okay...

So because of that, I'm not going to be able to do the next Illustration Friday, which is too bad.

Oh, another thing.
You guys should have fun playing with Translation Party.
You type in a phrase (nothing too long, or it doesn't work) and then it proceeds to translate it into Japanese, then back to English, then to Japanese etc. until it reaches a point of equilibrium where it can't translate anymore.

I tried it on my bio I have on my website, just to see what happens...
This is what I got...

pelican and envelope

I haven't done an illustration with just a white background in a while...
I had this rough lying around for a while (like the "mangrove" illustration a few posts back), so I thought I would take a stab at it... this weird pelican-human hybrid...

On another note:
Also, just the final look for the promo envelopes.

Sewing them up now...

I changed the design a bit since last time, so I'll be posting more pictures of progress (with the ribbon closures and such).

recently

For the past few weeks, I've been here and there a lot.
In a span of 3 weeks I've been to Ottawa (my hometown), back to Toronto, then back to Ottawa again. AND, at the end of this month, I'll be heading out for a few days to Hawaii....
weeeeeeeeee

But anyways.

A few days before I left for Ottawa for the second time, I updated my site so that now you can full view an image and see it bigger. woop.


And on another different note, I've been featured a few times in the blog Share Some Candy! They have a lot of awesome work, so please go check it out.

I also have a picture or two with the progress of my mail promos that I plan on updating here tomorrow. I changed the designs a bit, so it now involves some clear cello envelopes and ribbon closures.

Anyways, it's past 3:30am. Sleeptime? Maaaaaaybe.
