Fox Trot

Hallo, hallo!  I drew this a couple of weeks ago.  Hand drawn and inked and then colored in Photoshop.  I got inspired by dance and fashion while watching Project Runaway.  I ended up binge watching the last 4 seasons that were available on Netflix...while drawing!  I like watching shows....or maybe not watching shows really, while working since it doesn't require much brain power.  I actually made a cat drawing with the same dance theme and I have another idea, maybe I'll draw it up this Friday.  I haven't colored my cat one yet either and we have a busy weekend coming up.

I will be putting this up on my Redbubble shop.  Am hoping some time next week.  Will see if time is kind to me.

Rob and I have events on Saturday and possibly Sunday.  Fathers Day is coming up, though I suspect I will see mine when my sister comes back from a holiday and we'll go out for our normal family dinner.

The current episode my team is working on, at the studio, is tracking really well.  …

Strawberry Frog

I drew this a month or two ago,  I am still drawing, despite not posting on my blog regularly.  I don't think a lot of people read my posts nowadays, with facebook and instagram around, it really is a bit more difficult to post longer posts.  My dad still reads this though (hi dad!) and if you're reading this and you're not my dad, welcome friend!

The frog above, will eventually go up on my redbubble shop...along with quite a few other pieces.

Currently, am the team lead of 11 animators for an animated TV series. When it's released, I will talk more about it. It has been a very busy last few months.  I find the job rewarding but really stressful.  My life the last few months has been checking 100s upon 100's of shots, occasionally animating a shot or two, fixing, chasing props, making decisions, scheduling, conference calls, meetings...there really is so little animation involved, the higher you go.  I am enjoying it though, I adore my team, I think the world of m…

KidLit Vic 2018 and updates

Hi, hi!  It's been a really long time since I last wrote on my blog, I know.  It's been difficult I must admit trying to keep my all my social media accounts updated and because blogging is more of a desktop thing than a phone thing, it has fallen by the wayside a bit.

Anyhoo, last time I wrote anything was before May 19, right before the Kid Lit conference this year.  It was a great event, I met up with a lot of folks I haven't seen for ages and met a lot of lovely illustrators and got some invaluable one on one advice from two publishers.  One of them even gave me her card and said to contact them once I have a proper website.  Food was provided, there were a lot of free seminars to go to in between the paid conferences. It was a very good day.  I went to 2 workshops too and it's great to get some information from that.  I would definitely go again next year.

What's been happening...well, work has been busy as usual but my team is doing exceptionally well this ep…

Outfit of the Day 024

Hallo! This outfit was from weeks ago now when we did Formal Thursday.  First time I wore my hair in a bun and a long time since I appeared in business attire.  I find our weekly clothing themes so much fun.  I have a lot more to post here too.  I borrowed some earrings off Astri because I misplaced the earrings I was originally wearing.  Turns out I accidentally tucked it into my shirt.

Dean did the Photoshop goodness for the Jazz album rendition. 

Anyway, things have been busy with delivering episodes, my weekends and Fridays are now booked for the next 3 weeks with birthdays and I have a Kid Lit conference on the 19th.  Busy, busy, busy!  Trying to exercise and move more and not eat as much but it does get hard

I spent the weekend at a baby shower, doing my taxes and catching up with outfit of the day drawings.  I just finished number 33...pretty awesome.  I can't remember the last time I made over 30 using the same medium, subject and style.  Am pretty happy about that.  Now…

Outfit of the Day 023 and 025

These are pics from 2 weeks ago!  I was doing some kickboxing moves on Wednesday and wore my "Frosty Fun" A-line dress that can be bought on my Redbubble Shop. We went out for a Friday lunch that day.  It's nice to have bonding time with the Studio folks and get some sun!   Drawing with the girls has been great!

I miss kickboxing.  I did it for 2 years...seems like a lifetime ago now. I would love to do more active things again but I haven't made it a focus.  I think it might be time for me to focus on my health and try to get into some better habits again.  Food Diary and really attempt to make exercise a priority again.  I'm not freelancing at the moment.  My current job is just too strenuous for it to be a possibility for now....so aside from illustrating my daily outfit, which I have decided will be my project until I make 100 drawing, and we'll see if I decide to continue after that, I think exercise shall be my other focus.

Today was Anzac day.  I did …

Outfit of the Day 021-022

Hallo! Look at this!  Did some exercise while doing outfit of the day!  We've been having a lot of fun doing these.

Not much to report at the moment though in terms of life stuff.  My kitten is overweight, I might have spoilt him a bit so he's now on a diet and has not been a very happy kitty.  I have a busy weekend planned and am about 3 days behind on my outfit of the day drawings.  Hoping to draw another one tonight.

Studio life is a little more colorful and fun with drawing outfits!
