All hands on deck!!!!

Hey there!

This was the last illustration I made, about 2 weeks ago and it looks like it will be the last one I make for a while yet. Things have gone crazier at the studio for deadlines. I need to put my Muay Thai on hold since I simply cannot make it to the classes since I now also have to work on most Saturdays and hopefully will still be able to leave at 6pm on some days for dancing. I need to keep exercising or have some sort of activity at least once a week. I am rather pissed off about Muay Thai though. I really really enjoy it but I can only make class if I leave at 5pm from the studio, or get up at 5am to make the 7am classes or take a class on Saturday and there just isn't enough time at the moment.

A friend of mine has said a few things which have sunk in and many of those things weren't easy to hear at all but I needed to hear them though they weren't stuff I wanted to hear. Then again, what I want and what I actually need are two very different things.

Am working this weekend, so many things need to be done. It's not so bad though, I work with friends and people who I really do enjoy being with and people that I have every intention of seeing outside the studio. Lots of laughs amongst the pressure and mayhem. I think we're the group that when the shit hits the fan so hard that the fan breaks, we'd be laughing at the sheer ridiculousness of it all.

I wonder if I really am a bad judge of character or that I just prefer to be more optimistic about people and focus on what I enjoy and what I find good in them and what made me like certain people to begin with. Meh. Thinking too much after hours and hours of work is not a good thing.

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…
