What's been on!

Howdy,

Things have been very busy the last few months. I finished all the Cabbies episodes and a Blood Red animation for Zactoons, I finished several animations for Wizzmedia (with one more to go) and have been learning Toon Boom at Ettamogah for the last two weeks. My head is full of toonboomy-goodness. A little nervous about having to train other animators but this is my first time as a lead animator and all I can do is jump in and hope I can handle it!

I've been gym-ing once a week and bouldering once a week the last 3 weeks. I think I will be a lot more active soon. I need to get a lot fitter than what I am and I haven't climbed close to two months now. Oh dear. Things have just been really busy and I am reticent to go because it's so cold at the centre, even with an Icebreaker on...and being winter I just want to curl up into a ball with really nice, warm food.

I'm going to see the Circus this coming Friday! Am looking forward to it! I haven't been to the Circus in ages and ages! I am also going to see an exhibition on Thursday and I just booked tickets to see Wicked in late August! Woo hoo! Much fun!

Well, going to do more training for Toon Boom tomorrow, need to work out how to animate some of the shots properly :)

Things have been very good lately. Worked things out with a friend and things have been pretty cool :) and I'm going to do my part for things to stay pleasant! Life is too short to waste it on regrets, depression and sadness (not meaning to be cliche). Crap happens, deal with it then get happy again...least that's what am trying to do.

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…
