Hi

I am sick-ish again with a cough and cold. Yay. Not. I am also getting really sick working from home day in and day out and not seeing anyone. I can't go out much because I do have TONS of work to do. Not something you hear everyday from a freelance animator but I am loaded with work! Very fortunate and I am very thankful. But I feel like a bloody hermit! Yes, I get to wake up late (9 am) and work in my pyjamas till I finish a shot/scene then take a shower then try and finish more work till rock climbing, dinner or gym in the evenings. I miss working in a studio and the banter between workmates and going out to lunch. I really miss it. Looking forward to working at Ettamogah in July. The main thing I think I will dislike about it, is the travel time. Ugh. And the getting up early...just not used to it anymore...ah well. Must take the good with the bad.

Now, my rock climbing has improved yet again. Yay! I can now do rock overs. Woo hoo! Still need a bit of work on it but I'll get there. Now if only I can stop freezing/panicking on walls where I know I'll swing. Justin says it's cause I don't want it enough. I do want it...it just freaks me out a bit. Okay...maybe not a bit. A lot. But I've gotten over a lot of things that made me uncomfortable with rock climbing and this will just be another one of those things. Eventually.

I am going bouldering tonight with Thomas, Justin and Gav. Should be good fun. I need to take it easy though. I've been exercising every day for the last few days and I'm feeling very tired. Still it should be good fun and I am looking forward to it.

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…
