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.

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…
