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!

Hi, hi! 

How are things going?  Thought I would touch base.  My first week and a bit at work has been quite full on.  Lots of work to do for now.....will see how that goes.  Rob and I went to Sushi Jiro at the QV last weekend for some delicious sushi train.  We love sushi train.  I especially wanted to draw the scampi nigiri and the spicy salmon nigiri.

I also drew my fatty boombah kitty, Hanzo.  He is on a diet...but it's going to take time to lose weight, so he's still fat.  I need to lose weight too.  I really need to lessen my sugar and certainly exercise more. 

Working on some test animations tomorrow.  Should be good fun!

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…

Hello! Hello!  Some news!  I was on TV a few weeks back, April 07 to be precise, to represent Moshi with Christien Clegg and Dale Andreson for Space Chickens!  It was really good fun.  The hosts Lauren and Andy were super nice.  I was quite nervous, there wasn't a lot of warm up before filming and it was all very spontaneous.  We were advised to just run with any mistakes made. smile and just have a lot of energy!

Dale and I had a couple of draw offs while Christien refereed and described Space Chickens and  animation.  There were some really weird topics that we had to draw for the last segment, I had to draw a chicken doing taxes on the sun (with Andy) and a Pelican doing the lambada on a shooting star. We only had a minute each for each drawing.  It was crazy to say the least.  I did enjoy myself though.

The pictures below were taken by our Producer that accompanied us to the shoot!



In the first drawing,, where we had to draw the chickens, I was like grabbing colors to color m…
