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.

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.
