Well once again it turns out I have a very singular take on things-
I probably should have gone with the prevailing memes... and booby girlies with a bit of insect strategically stuck on...not that booby girlies is bad but I thought it was all about armour.
The movie version of starship troopers annoyed the hell out of me because the soldiers weren't properly protected with armour- and looking at the other CHOW-ites- well nude and unprotected seems to be how they like it. Protected except for the soft pink bits that is.
forgive them Ron Cobb.
All I can say is- if I'm stuck on an alien planet of giant killer insects - I know which armour I'll be wearing.

An evening and a little bit of mornings worth of CHOW. As you can see they are all done very fast and sketchy. But for me the ideas are important- and just trying to get them down quickly because I need to be working on the book series.
The subject was 'insect armour'

Its Grace the Gecko and her Go karting friends.
I was going to have a green cicada on the back powering/pushing the go karts (a bit rescuers like) but unless I have time they'll remain "turbo snail" powered.
(I have a lot of letters/books still to go.)

And on a completely different topic- I was having a look at The Loop site-
and you know I really wonder why I don't just work from photos like everybody else seems to be doing-
instead of doing it the hard way the way I do- ie just drawing/doing it from my head.
All this stuff classified as illustration and they've just worked from/copied a photo of a pretty girls face say....
expect some pretty flowery girls if I cross to the dark side.
In the meantime heres some kooky characters and a nudie girl from Aussiecon( and all off the cuff/from my head). And some doodling on the cover of a sketchbook on the plane home.

Some of the drawings I did while at my table at Aussiecon4- all A2 except fpr the bottersnike.
The photography isn't flash I'm afraid(literally) but the drawings were fairly nice- there's more that weren't sold that I've brought back-
but there were about 6 I did that I didn't get a shot of before I gave them away- including some which were prizes for an Aussiecon costume event.
I'll scan in the ones I have left and they'll look much nicer than the photo's do..
I'll write a lengthy post about it all soon.
