Deepest apologies to all for my neglect of this site for the last while. It’s been strange being back in Melbourne, settling back in. I was in Sydney for a week, not online, so that excuses me for one week I suppose. It was great to catch up with the family up there; sorry to those I didn’t make it to. Swimming in the ocean was also great.
I guess I just feel like I haven’t otherwise had much to report on; I’m just looking for work, swimming, running, skateboarding and occasionally hanging out with people and catching up. Last weekend I was up near Beechworth for Peta’s birthday, which is a nice little spot and was lots of fun. It’s an old gold rush town a few hours north of Melbourne.
The break in work has given me plenty of time to sit around sketching and things, some of which are appearing on my flickr. At the moment, I’m enjoying working in ink and watercolour. The ink with whatever means I feel like; brush, nib and for a while, rapidograph pen (though the cheap crappy one I was using crapped out). I know I should be doing more digital work, getting back in practice, but I’ve been enjoying the traditional mediums. Here’s a quick one from yesterday:
The major news is that it looks like I’ll be going to Jakarta, Indonesia, on another volunteer position in late January or early Feb. I’ve know about this for a while, but wanted to wait til it was properly confirmed. This one’s only for 6 months and doing similar work; web design training.
OK, think that’s it for now. I promise to be more attentive from now on…
