What more can I say ? Go the West Coast Eagles ~~~~~~~~~~ !!!
I originally wanted to do one of my 'Golf ball' looking goldfishes, but I couldn't find a decent picture on Google images. I searched for 'Goldfish Art' instead and drew the above picture while getting ideas from the many little thumbnail images that popped up from my google search.
This is proving to be more addictive than warcraft !!
Not sure why it looks so dark and gloomy. I had originally started with bright blue skys with full sunshine on a beach. Then somehow the colours got darker, and my painting had turned to night with a starry sky and with a cliff hanging off the side.
I'm off to do another one now... :)
I guess only the people who can read chinese will find this funny. The shop itself is supposed to be a hairdresser (no idea who would actually go there to cut their hair), but they used the wrong chinese words on their sign. The words used, actually means somewhere around the lines of 'ILLEGAL SHOP'. The pronounciation still sounds the same as 'hairdresser shop' - atleast in Cantonese it is. I'm not sure about Mandarin.
The first character means something like 'Not' or 'Non' when used in a sentence. The second character means 'Legal' or 'Law'. The third character means something like shop. So putting it all together, you get something around the lines of "Not-Legal-Shop'. Or Illegal Shop. (Pls correct me if I am wrong, I've never really learnt chinese and all I know now is from playing online chinese games).
This is the chinese character for hair - 髮
It took me about 10 minutes to figure out how to type that, so if anyone else knows how to type out the chinese equivalent for hairdresser, pls post it in the comments section... thanks.
And no, I don't live in an Asian country. This would probably never occur in an Asian country. With a name like that, the shop will probably get raided by police everyday. Only in Australia would you see something like this. Although I can't be too sure, if the owner of this shop knows which country he is in.
Take a look at this...
Before anyone actually says that this is the Australian flag. Let me just say it isn't. The Australian flag has only 6 stars. This looks more like a cross between the Australian flag and the American flag.
So either the owner of this shop is completely clueless, or maybe they are just trying to convey a political message.... That Australia will one day become the 52nd state of America ???
I hope not.
