Rainy Weekend


Hello,

It was wet, soggy and hailing today so I spent most of my Saturday at home and came up with this illustration! I am pretty happy with it. It's fun getting back into fashion illustration, it was a major hobby of mine years ago.

Things have been good lately. My climbing and Muay Thai has been improving and so has my animation. I still make mistakes but a bit of practice and dilligence and hopefully everything will gel together.

I also need to start updating my machines asap and start downsizing. I will probably spend the day tomorrow just getting rid of all the files on one of my machines ( I have two) and moving it to the other one which is newer.

Not much else has been happening, I have been spending far too much cash lately and have planned a budget and set up goals on where I want to be financially by the end of next year. I still think about the money I loaned to my father but not much can be done about that now. It still stings every now and then. Mind you, with Christmas coming around, trying to save and budget really isn't going to happen...meh.

Got a deadline next Wednesday so I may not be able to train on Monday night for Muay Thai as planned which is a shame. But looks like I'll be climbing twice next week which should be nice :D! I think I'm climbing a lot better but I still dont have the same stamina and strength that I used to have before I stopped climbing for 3 months. Not too sure if it was because I did a lot of weight and gym training back then...hopefully it comes back soon.

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.
