And the world keeps spinning.....


Hi!

A lot has happened in a week. I didn't get the Vocam job, they called up and said it was very close and I came second. They decided to go with someone who has more experience with big corporate work and who knows how a database system more or less works. But they did say that they'll throw any freelance stuff my way if there is any to be done, so we'll see!

I saw Iemedia last Wednesday and they gave me a freelance gig creating Avatars for a game. It's loads of fun but time consuming. Figuring out hairstyles and outfits does take time. Am going to be seeing them tomorrow and see what they think of the first batch of designs I sent them!

I also went to Bigkidz last Friday! I animated my one scene for a film we'll be giving to Animadness, a competition we joined. A still picture of it is above. Hoping that all goes well and that we win something again.

Thomas and I competed for the 15/15 Film Festival last Saturday. It was great and I think the animation that he and I made is very strong and we're hoping that it is received well in the screening. Our film is called "Chikky the Wonderbird". It was done in the same style as the OIL animation series that Thomas and I are doing.

I saw Thomas today and brought him all the footage for the new show reel that I will NOT be putting on my website because I cannot make it public. There will be a link that I will be sending to employers but can't put it for public viewing yet. However, I should be able to once Dogstar comes out sometime this year.

Well, that's all for now! I think I'll be spending most of my week making Avatar designs and hopefully a new Illustration to put on Redbubble and finish Oil Episode 04!

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…

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.
