The Monday after an awesome weekend!

Hi!

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 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.
