Am sick....and other stuff


Long time no write! Things have been a bit busy...I had a lot of Zactoon, Renmotion and am still working on Wizzmedia stuff. Much to do still. I may possbily be doing more work for Zactoons as well so that would be pretty cool...

The Illustration above is for Unit-16, it was my turn this week :) I'm happy that I had more time to work on this. My last illustration was so rushed, probably did it in less than half an hour and in unfortunately looked like it too.

I am a bit sick at the moment. I have been working really hard for a very long time without any vacations and it has finally taken it's toll. I've been trying to save up for a house but someone borrowed a substantial amount of money from me and it looks like he wont be able to give it back so he has well and truly thrown a spanner in my plans. Unfortunate, but it's a mistake I am no longer going to make. Still, looks like the house is going to have to wait. I need a vacation. I am thinking New Zealand right after I finish all current jobs and right before the full-time gig starts in July.

My climbing isn't so great at the moment, I think stress is really getting to me....trying to find ways to chill out and be happy. Which is kind of hard when am all snot-filled and dizzy..bah. Am not on a very good mood. I think am going to sleep a bit more.

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 endeavor to be a bit more frugal in the next production.

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 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…
