So much stuff.....


Hi!

Well am still freelancing and the work has started to increase instead of decrease which is a good thing, need cash to maintain my current lifestyle of activities! And let's face it, I wouldn't know what to do with myself if I had no work. I'd suffer from withdrawal symptons! Dont know how it works but despite juggling 3 different contracts currently (and another 3 are pending at the moment) I also go to the gym, rock climbing and bouldering at least once a week. More if I can help it. I'm also planning to take up Acrobatics and Urban Salsa dancing! How cool is that?!?!? Funny thing is that it's one of my animation supervisors in the past (JC from Bigkidz) that teaches the class! Small world!

I've also started buying artbooks for references and inspiration! I love looking at the gorgeous pictures, makes me insanely jealous but I also gives me the desire to become a better artist and designer than what I am at the moment. Thomas gave me the best present ever for Christmas, an artbook with the character designs and works from the people who did Magnacarta. I absolutely I adore it. Going to make it a point to have 1 day a week where I only draw for me! Illustrating relaxes me and makes me happy (when it works).

Am looking forward to buy myself a nice new snazzy laptop! I can't wait! I'll finally own one. Always been meaning to buy one but everytime I have enough money to comfortably spend on it family stuff happens. Not this year though! I'm getting a laptop, travelling and everything else I aim for!

Oh yeah, image above is on Red Bubble too. I can't wait to draw something for Unit-16 . I want to do something for the Super Hero spawning pool activity.

Not much else to report...I am doing a rock climbing technique course in mid-late Feb for 3 days and I am really looking forward to it.

Personal life...things have settled down and I am much happier now. Looking forward to things and working on Oil with Thomas and looking forward to getting all projects off the ground! It's going to be an awesome year cos I am going to make it awesome!

Chat again soon!

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.
