Recap and Ramblings

Hi

Well....things have been crazy the last few weeks. My long time "friend" has decided to have some space, so all projects have now been put on hold if not totally discarded and all plans have been pretty much binned. It's hard to think how a 7 year friendship and other stuff can be casually ended via gmail chat while I was at work. I was shattered. There were times that night that I couldn't even breathe, my chest was so tight, I wanted to scream, cry, hurt something and I couldn't do any of that....well, maybe my voice did go several octaves higher. :) I was very fortunate that I work with a lot of people I consider friends and had very understanding administrators. I got the support that helped me through that night.

I am glad to say I haven't cried about that incident since. It's been close to a month now. This is the longest I have gone without speaking to this person....in the last 7 years.

Am annoyed that another friend of mine predicted this situation almost a year ago. Am annoyed he gets to say "I told you so". I am also grateful to him and several other friends for being there for me.

I am starting to get really agitated not being able to workout and do as much activities as I would like to do. I want to get back into Muay Thai, I want to be able to dance more regularly, I miss training in a gym and it would be good to get back into climbing...small steps first..bouldering would be good to do again.

Work has been stressful but good. The team and the people working there are awesome and it is a pleasure to come to work. I still have a lot of things to improve on and things aren't peachy all the time but am working on it. Some things have finally clicked and others are frustrating me cos it's taking longer. I just want the time to really sit down and study and play around with Toon Boom. Who knows. I really want to get better at animating and with Toon Boom. I want to learn how to rig and be more competent with FX.

Am looking forward to Canada, a vacation right now would be so lovely and experiencing new stuff!

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…
