The Monday after an awesome weekend!


Well, things have been very busy all around! Work has ramped up majorly and so has the extracurriculars! Going to gym, climbing and acrobatics are all full steam ahead! The weekend just past was absolutely physically gruelling but fun!

On Saturday, I went to an high intensity RPM class with Justin, Thomas and Sau Yan (will talk more about her later) for an hour. Whoah....I have never felt so much pain in my behind as I did then. Afterwards, it was weights with Justin and Thomas. Yan went to a body balance class while we did that. We all went out to lunch to the Dumpling House (yum, yum) and had coffee. Then Thomas and I went to Acrobatics where we got slapped with dips, star jumps on soft landing pads , balance beam exercises and lots and lots of core work. After RPM I did not want to use any of my leg muscles...and after acro, there was a point I did not think I'd be able to walk properly again... :D I chilled out with Thomas that night watching Rogue Assassins, a movie with much fluff and silly plot lines but good fun till the point the DVD stopped right before the end. Bleh. Am sure my life isn't any less better for not knowing the ending :).

Sunday was all about Rock climbing at Cliffhanger. I've never been there before. I really enjoy bouldering. Kills my hands a bit but damn, I really do have fun. I did a couple of climbs and one of them was really, really tiring. I finished it but I really want to improve my fitness level and strength to last longer on the walls.

Now, Justin, Thomas and myself have been very fortunate to meet another group of climbers who are all very nice and wonderful people! Sau Yan, Mindy, Wei Chen and Steve are all great company and are fun to climb with! They're enthusiastic and they're into activities which is great! They're all Malaysian though like Just and Gav. What is it with all these fantastic Malaysian climbers?!?!?!

Steve has enlisted Justin to train him at the gym...the poor man does not know what's he's in for. I didn't. I'm thankful for the training...but wow, did it hurt! But can't complain too much as there were results!

I'm RPMing, weights and doing acro this coming Saturday and climbing tomorrow, cardio on Wednesday, gym on Thursday and climb again on Friday! Much activities that's for sure!!!! Oh...and am doing work throughout the day and nights amidst all the extracurriculars :)

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…

Hallo!  Ah....another month has passed and it's taken me a very long time to write.  I don't know what it is but I am struggling to keep this blog up to date at the moment.  Things have been super busy ever since I took the Animation Supervisor role in my current contract.  I find that I don't particularly enjoy turning on the computer after work and would prefer to just read comics to relax.

How am I finding it?  Different.  I miss just being responsible for myself and it's tiring keeping track of a lot of things and people at work.  I feel like I took my lead/senior animator role for granted.  I had to work this Saturday gone past too and though I feel pleased that we managed to resolve an issue that came up, am still feeling some trepidation on what may come up next.  It feels like am solving one problem after another.  Not without raging about it and my expletives have gotten even more colorful since starting the gig.

I have been spending way too much money too.  …
