A really rough start




Hi...

Things have not been that great lately. I have been really busy with work, working through really tough deadlines and still improving as both a team leader and an animator. I've also been doing my best to try and keep it together at work since the start of this year.

The bright thing about this year is that I am going to Canada. My tickets are all booked and I am incredibly excited! It's going to be awesome and I am seeing my friend Romina who I haven't seen since I was 16! That's 12 years already! Oh my gosh!

I find myself also incredibly fortunate to have good friends. These last few months have made me really appreciate all the friends that I have. I have friends who give advice, who are there for me, who let me stay over, be there while I cry myself to dehydration and who tell me frankly and straight to my face what they think and friends to have brunch with and who make me realize that there really is a lot to do and enjoy in the world. The advice and the dose of perspective especially coming from another good friend, who is probably one of the most perceptive and infuriating person I have ever met, has been great. Despite the harsh delivery and the fact that I would like nothing more than to have a piano fall on said person while I watch (like Tex Avery and Warner Bros cartoons) , I really appreciate it.

Meh, work is hectic as always and I am doing the best I can and the entire animation team has been awesome! Going to work everyday is great and there is not one day I go to work and not laugh at some silliness!

Life is...entertaining at least! Not one day has been without some sort of drama or entertainment of some sort.

Ps, the drawing above have been the last 3 drawings that I have done out of fun. Check the better quality on my Red Bubble website :)

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!

IF: Mail

"Peggy was so surprised when she discovered that........"

This is my submission for Illustration Friday: Mail.  Thought I would leave it open ended for everyone else to fill in the blanks.

I haven't been able to submit for two weeks because of freelance work and it feels so nice to have something up for this week.  I am still on fashion illustration mode and enjoying it a lot.  Done in Flash and tweaked in Photoshop.

IF: Burning

Howdy!

This is my illustration for Illustration Friday and the theme is Burning.  I wanted to do something simple with bold colours and I went for "burning passion" and why not?  I think it's the type of burning most people wont mind at all.  This was illustrated in Flash.

I bought two awesome fashion books today: Dreaming of Chanel and Dreaming of Dior.  I would definitely recommend them!
