dear diary...


Hi!

Things have skyrocketed with busy-ness. Doing a project for Areeba Solutions after hours, after working full-time at Ettamogah and will be doing animation work for Wizzmedia shortly as well.

What exactly do I do in all my jobs? Animate mostly. I do set-ups as well. Sadly I haven't had much time for my own work as of late and the last illustration I did is the image shown above. Check out a bigger picture of her on RedBubble ( it's located on my Links section) I also finished off an animation for Melbourne Uni last week too.

So much to do... but it's better than having nothing to do that's for sure! I'm also socializing a lot more now, funny that when am working with people who happen to be my friends. It's a wonderful thing.

There also seems to be more work to do in the horizon and am always eager to see what else pops up and if I can fit it in. I'm obsessed I think. I like building up my folio, I enjoy meeting and working for new clients, I like most of my old clients and I want enough cash saved up for both a Europe vacation and an apartment of my own (dont want to rent forever).

But I'm also thinking how nice it would be to work overseas for a little while. A new place and a change of pace but it's a scary thing because I dont know if I would be as successful elsewhere and I really worked hard to get to this point being employable in Australia....but an adventure while feeding my workaholic habit would be nice.

Gah, am rambling.....I think this is my last day of socializing for a while and then I have to really knuckle down.

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.  …
