Unfinished sketch #1

Trying to go for a bewildered, "what the?" look here. Appears more angry than anything else.

Illustration Friday - Sorrow

Here's my illo friday entry. Quick toy with color in photoshop using channels to get my outlines, etc. Original illustration was done with blue biro on lined paper, so I reckon it's turned out alright.

Cycling adventures

No pic today... but a little story on the beginning of my day.

well then, another glorious morning for a ride to work.

left the house at approx 8am, cruising along at normal pace until I got to the hill on Whitehorse Road between Elgar and Union. hisssssss.... punture number 4032 in the road cycling adventures of Scott.

"not to worry!" says he. "I'll quickly whack in the spare punctured tube that I fixed the other day!" So in it goes, start pumping it up... no love!!

Ho hum... best fix the puncture then shall I?! start fixing it... starts raining... looks ready to go... glue not holding... throw away patch, try again... rain shower number 2 passes... looks ready to go... glue not fricken holding again!

cracks it. looks at the time - 8:55am. strewth! there's a bike shop about a km up the road, I'll make a walk for it, buy a fresh tube, whack it in, get to work - super plan.

get to shop - Open Mon-Thurs 10:30 am! what the??!! look around for somewhere to try for the 3rd time to fix the damn puncture.

"hey buddy!" yells some bloke from his ute across the road. I look at him. emblazoned on his car is a logo - "The Bicycle Mechanic" - what are the odds.

"throw your bike in the back and I'll take it down to the shop and fix it up for ya!" he says.

"cool!" i think. he says he saw me down the road walking to the bike shop so he thought he'd wait in case something was wrong.

so off we go down to Rays bikes in Balwyn. apparently they are moving shop and today's the last day to get out of the old one. so we rock on into the shop and everythings in packing boxes.

"bugger!" he says... "I've taken all the tubes down to the new shop"

oh well... I'm thinking, back to fixing the old one

then another ray of sunshine hits us. out the back in the workshop he finds a tube... and it's the perfect size... holy cow!!

so he takes my wheel and fixes it up... don't I feel like royalty!

then I say "how much do I owe you?" and he says - "no worries mate, it's on the house!"

then I bust my ass to get to work at a reasonable hour - 9:30am

I love the cycling community!

Illustration Friday - Flight

Pretty busy this week so I had to pull this one from the archives. Was for a folio website concept that never got around to implementation.
