The weekend has come....




Hi there

The weekend has come! Hurrah! I plan to catch up on sleep and some for m of happiness as next week is the start of some very long days. Stuff is due 2 more Fridays from now and there is still so much to be done. Ah well.

Things are not so easy at the moment. Lots of personal things are going on with a friend and my family. It is taking everything I got just to keep concentrating. The bright side is that I am working on a lot of A shots which I prefer to do now rather than later. I am hoping to finish all A shots next week and have nothing but B's and C's after that. That said, I did have problems with the simpler shots which I did this week which is ridiculous! I had a hard long scene with tons of re-draws and movements that got approved first pass. Meh! Anyhooo....got another long A-scene to finish on Monday and hopefully that'll be another sequence I can just write off.

It's something juggling doing footage and checking and working on my fixes. :) Hopefully with some overtime next week I can wipe out a majority of all my hard shots and B's and C's.

My training for Muay Thai is erratic cos of the work schedule, I haven't climbed since a close friend and I ,who is my climbing partner, had a bit of a falling out hopefully with time we wont be so distant from each other. I still do yoga and I have lost a lot of weight. Sigh.

The sketches above were my efforts for my first time back at lifedrawing. I dont think I've gone since 2006....so long ago.

Not much else to talk about. Went out for drinks today with Leisl from work which was really lovely and looking forward to just chilling out and drawing my own stuff this weekend...

I hope things get better soon on all fronts. So looking forward to Canada!

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.  …
