I've neglected my Daily Sketches for far too long so I'm officially changing the name of the series to Random Doodles. With the work that I'm doing for Games for Gummie, all my time at home these days have been sapped up with creating art assets for our latest game. My Daily Sketch book has slowly disappeared under a pile of stuff next to me on my desk.
But I haven't given up drawing or more accurately, doodling. I've just found a new time and place for it. I spend several evenings a week at the Wing Chun Bing Fa Kung Fu Academy in Melbourne CBD. I've been learning Wing Chun Kung Fu for quite a few years now and the academy has become almost like a second home to me. On some nights, my husband and I will lock up the academy for our Si-fu and so I've taken the opportunity to use this time to doodle in the book that Sifu Julian (founder and instructor of our school) uses to keep track of the list of students in each class.
Here's a recent one:
I've been keeping to the theme of martial arts for these Kung Fu doodles (Kung Foodles? :p) and usually the inspiration for them comes directly from what I'd just been doing in class. They're all pretty silly and random but it entertains Sifu Julian and his family when they open up the school the next morning and so that makes me pretty happy! :)
