Sakura Sparrows

Hi!  I meant to write sooner but as always, time got away from me.  I had another episode delivery day today so things were pretty busy as always and I was pretty tired when I got home.
I finished coloring up my sparrows last weekend, right before Inktober, where you draw an ink drawing every day.  I am a few days late posting here.  I will need to make up for it soon.  It's been fun but a little tiring.  I almost have to do it in advance just to keep up.
Not much else has been happening aside from drawing, working and wondering what expenses to cut out.  Waiting to see what next year brings.  Contracts are never sure, until they are happening.  I also have this credit to show!

 My credit for Space Chickens!  Pretty cool!
I will probably have a break between productions.  This time, I will spend my time doing all the things I've been meaning to do like large paintings, update all my social media accounts, a website...creative things..open more online art stores and promote my…

Green and Gold

Hallo!  Been a couple of weeks since I last posted.  I finished this a few weeks ago too and just forgot to post it.  It's for sale on my Redbubble store! If anyone is interested. Birds are super fun to draw and I did enjoy drawing these ones.  Too bad it did't get featured on Redbubble.  It would have done well on sales, I feel.  It's all luck of the draw though! There are bunnies hidden in the piece too.

 Not much has happened except for the normal things like lots of work needing to get done.  We have 6 episodes left to go, for my team anyway.  Time has certainly flown by.  Am thinking of just staying at home and drawing for a couple of weeks or so till the next project starts up again.  Am pretty sure am involved but to be honest, you never know with this industry.  Am not particularly worried, to be honest.  There are a lot of things am planning to do and am hoping to get a chance to do it during my break.

Tomorrow is the start of Inktober, where you draw an inked d…

Space Chickens in Space Trailer

Hi, hi!  A trailer for the projects I've been working on all year at Studio Moshi, as an Animation Team Lead, has been released!  Here it is in all it's glory.  It's pretty fun and manic and colourful, with funny stories and appealing characters. All the good things that I enjoy when working on a project. 

It's always interesting when working with people from different countries and time zones, getting assets and feedback but it works.

We have 4 months left on this project.  Where did the time go?  It feels like it just zipped by.  I am looking forward to a break.  I think...this time around I will focus on getting my website done and working out all my social media accounts and perhaps a few new pieces as well.

Been doing budgets too.  I think I may have been eating out way too much and shopping, but hey...can't take money with you when you die!  That said, I think I will endeavour to be a bit more frugal in the next production.

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…
