Pre-New Year

Hey All!

The above image is an example of how I will be drawing tomorrow night if I attempt to work. That's right...instead of working I will be joining the festivities for New Years Eve!!!! Going out with old friends (highschool) for a night of drinking and food!

Am too tired to work tonight too. The good news is that I am just currently waiting for feedback for the Illustrations for my aunt, which will now be posters instead of being painted on the wall and awaiting feedback for St. Hide as well. More good news is that I've actually started illustrating stuff for Melb Uni as well. So all things are going smoothly so far. Am happy and I get to see some friends tomorrow.

I hope that 2007 will be a happier year. I think as soon as things slow down I'm going to look for some full-time work just so I can have a bit of a schedule and make time to do things like dancing, learning Japanese and take the time to meet more people. Work is great and I like being on the computer...though unfortunately, computers don't hug back at night and sometimes, I would like a hug and I do get lonely every so often. This is ofcourse not to say that I dont want to work anymore. Far from it, but I will need to balance work and personal life a bit better.

2006 has been great. I've met a lot of new clients and had a great time socializing and doing work...so much work. I am thankful to have gotten jobs so quickly as soon as my full-time contract at Bigkidz ended. I am thankful to have met the great folks at Bigkidz and having had the opportunity to work with them. I am thankful for 9Lanterns hiring me when I needed extra cash and for Melbourne Uni for always keeping me in their books and for recommending me to other people. I am thankful for all my friends and family. Though they also cost me grief every now and then, my friends and family have been there for me when I needed the help and have been understanding of my work and support and worry about me. It's nice to know that there are people who care enough about me to worry about me.

Next year, I would like to make sure that I dont commit the same mistakes I did this year, in business and in my personal life. It's cliche' I know. New Year, new beginnings....but it's something I would like to try.

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.  …
