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.

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…

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.  …
