Quantum of Solace – James Bond

“Bond, James Bond”. The tagline of from MI6’s most famous spy is not uttered once through the whole movie. Quantum of Solace picks up about 30 minutes from Casino Royale (Hint : Watch Casino Royale again before Quantum of Solace) with Bond tracking down a secret organisation with nefarious plans in Bolivia. Through the movie, […]

Drawing Course – Week 6

Following on from Week 5, the class started with some gesture drawing. It’s an easy way to capture the sense of movement of the model. I hope to develop a gesture drawing into something more academic. It’s a good way to get started on getting a “sense” of the subject. During Week 6, we revisited […]

Heroes Vol 2 – Graphic Novel

I was very excited to pick up Heroes Volume 2 – Graphic Novel over the weekend. It collects the short online comics of the TV Series. With a multitude of characters in the show, it would be impossible to give an adequate back story to everyone so the comic provides stories “behind the scenes”. With […]

Latte – North Shore

A delicious latte from Chatswood (North of Sydney CBD). I prefer the lighting of this picture to the previous latte picture I posted up. The black table gives a much better contrast.

Drawing Course – Week 5

I couldn’t make it to Week 4 so Week 3 was my latest update. The class started with 15 sec then 30 sec and finally 1 minute gesture drawings. The combined poses on the one page gives it a life like quality. You have to concentrate to pick out the different poses. The next task […]


Watchmen by Alan Moore and David Gibson is one of the most definitive graphic novels of all time. With the movie (Zack Synder) coming out soon, I borrowed the TPB from the library again. It’s been quite a while since I last read it and I seem to be picking a lot of detail I […]


It’s not a Green Tea Latte. An affogato is a shot of espresso topped with ice-cream or gelato. The one featured here is with Rum & Raisin ice-cream from a little gelato shop just north of Sydney CBD. The gelato will melt ever so slightly over hot coffee. I think one of the best gelato […]
