Friends, Work and Rock Climbing

Hello,

Things have been good. I am now more or less fully recovered from being ill. God, I felt like I wiped out an entire forest from blowing my noise with every tissue and toilet roll paper I could get my hands on.

I am still working for Wizzmedia and Zactoons have hired me to do 8 animations (last due date in June) and I am also doing some work for Renmotion (unknown quantity and time). Should be good fun...am going to be so overloaded come next week but I like work and I love animation so bring it on! Also, Thomas and I are also discussing battle plans for our own projects that will be running on top of all my other commitments so it should be awesome! And am not being sarcastic either, having lots of things to do and they look pretty is awesome. Show reel pieces and MONEY!!!!!! Money which will ultimately pay for my laptop (which I have yet to purchase) and possibly travelling! If I do travel, doesn't look like it will happen till July which will be before Ettamogah starts. Much to do!

It's such a small world or maybe it's just my world because it seems to be filled with people from AIM (Animation Interactive Media at RMIT Uni). This is not a bad thing. But wow....like a lot of people who are very important to me, my friends, people I work and associate with (in and out of the studios) are mostly from the AIM centre. I have a lot of fond and not so good memories from AIM. I am grateful for the experience and for the lessons I learned there....and I don't just mean animation either.

Indoor rock climbing has been fun. I still have a lot of weaknesses though which I am working on. I don't like swinging from the wall, I get freaked out and I need to conquer that and I can't seem to do a "rock over" which is something I really need to work on. Going bouldering with Justin and Gavin tomorrow so that should be a lot of fun! Am looking forward to it.

Next week is all about work...all about juggling 3 different animation projects and styles! Should be good!

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…
