The Lazy Vlog - Us Attempting To Taste Wine

Hello Lovely People! 

Last Friday Lee and I got home from work. We had no plans and decided to go a little crazy and get some nice wine for our dinner. We tried to buy a nice bottle but quickly realised we still knew nothing about wine, even after two wine tours that we recently went on in New Zealand and in Western Australia.
So we did what all good people who can't decide on one bottle do...we bought two. We wanted to test our knowledge and see if we had learnt ANYTHING.....just a heads up....the answer is: no we didn't. 

What we drank: 
*Oyster Bay - Sauvignon blanc - $20
* Wahu - Sauvignon blanc - $7

Travel Doodle Journal - New Zealand Edition

I've always loved to scribble down doodles, normally based on weird things that happen through the day. So a travel journal was the next step. Here are the sketches from our recent trip. All were drawn in my handy Kmart A5 sketch book , which is surprisingly the BEST sketch book and only $2 ...yes it's shocking! I took a ton of Copic pens with me, my Copic multi liners in 0.4 and 0.05 , as well as my prisma colour pencils (which have no rubbers on the ends any more from over use...opphs)
If you have any questions about the certain colours I used, please just ask. I've bought all my colours by seeing other people use them and then needing to get it to complete my weird colour obsession:

A Lazy Vlog - Doodles and Breakfast

A lazy weekend with some doodling was had. Here's a short vlog of our morning. I'm working on a large illustration project at the moment , but I was lucky to squeeze in some time to do a silly doodle.

Our New Zealand Road Trip - Part 2 - Skipping Stones, Sketches, Fog Hidden Mountains and Lots of Adventures.

Here is the 2nd part of our road trip around New Zealand's North Island. It was stunning, beautiful and we laughed until my face hurt. Here is a video of us making fools of ourselves...sprinkled with some doodles I did along the way.

I'll post all of the drawings on here soon :)

Thank you for watching. I can't wait to see the South Island soon. Travel is addictive!!!!

New Zealand - Sketches and Wine (pt 1)

So here is part 1 of our New Zealand trip. This video is filled with a few sketches and a lot of film of me being a dope. I've never talked to the camera before. After editing this I probably won't again :)

Enjoy and I hope your weekend was lovely xxx

Our Day at Hobbiton !!!

Guys, guys, guys !
We went to Hobbiton. I feel it is almost criminal to go to New Zealand and not go to the rolling hills of The Shire. We are massive nerds and we loved every bit of it. I read The Hobbit when I was about 8 and The Lord of the Rings when I was 12 so I was raring to go.
It was expensive (about $79 each) so maybe decide how much you  love the books/films before you go but t was beautiful there any felt like the Welsh hills of the UK.

Here's us being 'filthy Hobbit-sis'

Some sketches to follow :D

What's in my art / travel bag

We are heading off to NEW ZEALAND!! Here are all of the deliciously lovely art supplies I'll be taking with me on our tour of the North island:

I'm trying to make a few more videos. I LOVE YouTube art videos and although I'm no where near as good as the hotties online, I'm gonna give it a go. If you follow my Instagram you my notice i've gone a little art crazy. I'm a cg animator but I really want to be a better drawer so I've been life drawing , filming , painting, sketching and editing like well as animating. My poor old art brain hurts.  Improvement is slooooooow but really fun.

Fingers crossed some vids of our trip will be up on here soon.
