Interview...and other stuff


hi,

I have job interview with Enttamogah this coming Wednesday. Oooh...a little nervous. Pity that they aren't located as near to my home as all my other jobs are. It sounds like an exciting project, it'll also keep me employed till February if I get it. Renmotion does end this month or early next year, though Suren has mentioned other projects that I could be involved in.

That lesson (I get a different lesson to animate every week and I get paid after it's done) am working on at Renmotion is going well. I could get more done today but it's sooo hot and humid and I'm feeling rather headachy. I also need to start that Penguin animation this week...so am going to be doing some storyboarding later tonight and figure out the best way to attack my scenes.

Melbourne Uni is luckily very lenient on when they want me to submit corrections on previous work and the due date for an immediate project is not until late January which am happy about.

Ah, debating on what to take to the Interview. Wanting to make sure that I don't forget anything and hoping that I do well. I am glad that they liked my website enough to call me back. It gives me a great amount of confidence that people are still impressed with work I did over a year ago. There's no Dogstar on the reel or any of my newer animations so it does make me feel great about it. Thomas said that as soon as Dogstar is out on TV he'll help me cut a new reel for me! Very awesome.

Daniel has been sick so still no new title for that short film we're doing or the characters for that matter. But it'll happen at some point...I hope.

I was also up on the Eatpoo to do an illustration for the "Weeklies" forum. Check the link out at:

Drawing Request 08: A rancid baby teething on the enterprise while a stray shrink ray lies on the porch of the redneck family.

Day 34 and I've finally done another one of the drawing requests.  Only 2 more to go! This one is for my friend Peter Douglas, he requested this on facebook a while back, his request: A rancid baby teething on the enterprise while a stray shrink ray lies on the porch of the redneck family.  This was done with fineliners and brought into photoshop.

I am worried about what's going to happen after the pilot gig.  It's been really slow this year and with financial crisis looming...who knows what's going to happen.  I've never done any other sort of work that wasn't creative...with the exception of that one summer job I had working at a chocolate factory and admittedly that was fun.  Oh the chocolates...so many chocolates...ending up in my pocket (it was all perfectly legal, they encouraged workers to eat chocolates thinking that will make us all sick of it....obviously they didn't know that I could live solely on chocolates).   Anyway, I can't complain, I&…

Howdy!  It's been a while since i posted anything up on the blog.  My bad. I've been super busy with one job after another and I WAS doing a few drawing challenges too before I got overrun with work.

For news, I finished up with one of my animation jobs last Monday, started work at one of my regular studios on Thursday and we're working on a cartoon movie for DVD, did drawing and freelance illustration in between those days and caught up with a friend, somebody was being a jack ass on the tram and I let them know it.   Rob and I also watched Logan, a great movie and I would totally recommend it.

Today, I did a bit of work, received text from one of my employers about more work and we're about to enjoy the day in a country fair.  Well, if we make it in time.  I also cooked up pancakes this morning and it wasn't a disaster.

Our kitty Hanzo (changed from Dorian) is causing a lot of mischief and he likes to eat electric cables.  Guess we have to find something to stop…

Hallo!  Ah....another month has passed and it's taken me a very long time to write.  I don't know what it is but I am struggling to keep this blog up to date at the moment.  Things have been super busy ever since I took the Animation Supervisor role in my current contract.  I find that I don't particularly enjoy turning on the computer after work and would prefer to just read comics to relax.

How am I finding it?  Different.  I miss just being responsible for myself and it's tiring keeping track of a lot of things and people at work.  I feel like I took my lead/senior animator role for granted.  I had to work this Saturday gone past too and though I feel pleased that we managed to resolve an issue that came up, am still feeling some trepidation on what may come up next.  It feels like am solving one problem after another.  Not without raging about it and my expletives have gotten even more colorful since starting the gig.

I have been spending way too much money too.  …
