Unravelled

Hi

Well, am not feeling too shit hot about stuff at the moment. Things with a friend of mine is really fluctuating and it's not his fault nor is it mine. Circumstances, head spaces and emotions are just not gelling and it's causing a lot of friction and pain between us. A bit of space for a little while is probably the best solution at the moment, though it really pains me. This person and I always hang out and is my closest friend so not having him about will be very strange to say the least...though if things keep going the way they are, there wont be a friendship between us and I value that above all else.

I am quitting Acrobatics. It's takes too long to get to via public transport and I still need to hitch a ride with a friend to get there. It sucks but I will need my Saturday afternoon/evenings to do work or to chill out once Ettamogah starts.

I've been playing games during my downtime, on the Wii and on Facebook (playing word games against Justin). I'm having a lot of fun and I really need some fun in my life. I have also started bouldering again and that was fun too but I am very rusty and I have no finger strength to speak of. I am also looking forward going to the gym on Saturday, should be good fun.

I haven't been sleeping well since all these problems started. That and a lot of stress from work has been keeping me up to the wee hours of the night. I spent one night doing work from 3AM to 5:30 AM. I went to bed at 2AM that night and I just couldn't sleep so I thought I'd be productive and do work. It did work out, I handed it in early, it was approved and I got to spend the day more or less stress free.

I now have two more animations to finish, work for Wizzmedia then am on for training at Ettamogah. After that I am going to veg out, play games, exercise and boulder and possibly climb before Ettamogah starts full-time. I need a break. Though, it wont be entirely work-less I want to do a couple of short animations on another animation program! I can't help myself sometimes.

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!

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 endeavor to be a bit more frugal in the next production.

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…
