Hello! Hello!  Some news!  I was on TV a few weeks back, April 07 to be precise, to represent Moshi with Christien Clegg and Dale Andreson for Space Chickens!  It was really good fun.  The hosts Lauren and Andy were super nice.  I was quite nervous, there wasn't a lot of warm up before filming and it was all very spontaneous.  We were advised to just run with any mistakes made. smile and just have a lot of energy!

Dale and I had a couple of draw offs while Christien refereed and described Space Chickens and  animation.  There were some really weird topics that we had to draw for the last segment, I had to draw a chicken doing taxes on the sun (with Andy) and a Pelican doing the lambada on a shooting star. We only had a minute each for each drawing.  It was crazy to say the least.  I did enjoy myself though.

The pictures below were taken by our Producer that accompanied us to the shoot!



In the first drawing,, where we had to draw the chickens, I was like grabbing colors to color m…

February Faces Part 02: Kitty Portraits

I did 28 cat portraits to represent every day in February!  All drawn with color pencils on black sketchbook paper.  That was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed working with this medium and the subject.  Adding in extra colors in the fur just makes the illustrations more playful, I think.

My project for the month of March is Mushrooms.  It's not as consistent as my February theme since I didn't decide what exactly I was doing in advance and I had a lot of grand ideas but not the time to do them unfortunately.  I will need to decide what it is exactly I am doing for April. 


February Faces Part 01: Kitty Portraits

Hi!  I've been drawing kitty portraits for February, done for the facebook group "Kick in the Creatives" for #februaryfaces . I've been drawing the entire series on black paper and colour pencils.  These are cats from friends and acquaintances.  It's amazing how many cat owners there are in the animation industry.

 I've decided to do monthly themes, of my own choosing or invention and if there are popular artist monthly themes going like Inktober and Mermay, a practice in commitment and I come out with different series.  Not sure if I can do it every month but I will give it a try.  I have ideas for both March and April after February Faces is done.

I have been enjoying using colour pencils.  Each sketch takes me an hour to an hour and a half on average to do.  These are my friends, family and acquaintances cats.  They all belong to creative and artistic owners.  I made it to number 18 last night.  I am running a day behind.  Fingers crossed I catch up tonig…

Illustration Station Week 03: Sky

Hi! Hi!   The picture above was done with copics and then edited in Photoshop.  I've been participating in a weekly drawing challenge    Last day of the month.  January just flew by for me.  I've been working as a designer at my current studio and I've been enjoying it.  It's pretty relaxing, compared to last year, but still really busy which I like.

Not much else has been happening this month.  I've been walking to work in the mornings when I make it to the city, saw my friends a couple of times this month, been keeping track of my expenses with an app and gardening!  Oops!  I should put up photos of those in another post.

I am trying to be a bit more healthy and more active and get massages done again.  I've been neglecting that.


Some journal entries!

Hi, hi! 

How are things going?  Thought I would touch base.  My first week and a bit at work has been quite full on.  Lots of work to do for now.....will see how that goes.  Rob and I went to Sushi Jiro at the QV last weekend for some delicious sushi train.  We love sushi train.  I especially wanted to draw the scampi nigiri and the spicy salmon nigiri.

I also drew my fatty boombah kitty, Hanzo.  He is on a diet...but it's going to take time to lose weight, so he's still fat.  I need to lose weight too.  I really need to lessen my sugar and certainly exercise more. 

Working on some test animations tomorrow.  Should be good fun!

First week back!

Hallo, hallo!

How goes it?  It was my first day back at work yesterday.  It's been good and busy but things are still unsure.  See how things go, that's all I can do!  Am testing rigs right now and will probably move onto design soon.

One of the drawings I did last week.  Good fun practicing with copics again.  It has been a while.  I am currently just doing outfit drawings mostly, as that's what inspires me right now.  Though I think I may try my hand on another seahorse soon or some birds.  I do love birds, has to wait till the weekend though.  I tend to get back too late from work for much else.
