Melbourne Calling

Very soon I will be animating on a project out of Melbourne. I probably can't mention details just yet, so I won't, just to be on the safe side.

At any rate, the job requires me to leave the comfort of my home office of 9 years! and head on down to the big smoke. Since I won't be able to use my Cintiq on location, I'm downgrading and digging out my previous tablet for the trip.

She's a bit grubby and scratched up, but she should see me right. The above picture is the result of my attempts to rekindle our old partnership. I couldn't think of anything to draw, so I decided to draw myself re familiarising myself with it. It's like riding a bike really, only less energetic.
