AM BACK!!!!

Hello, hello!

I am back from my trip!  Just got back on the 19th of April.  For those who dont know, I did not end up going to Japan because of the recent disasters and decided to go on a Europe tour with "Topdeck" for my vacation.  I had a brilliant time, except when I got bitten by bed bugs in a hostel in Salszburg....it was not pleasant and I still bear the marks. It turns out, I was allergic to the suckers.

I ended up going to London, Paris, Switzerland, Florence, Rome, Venice, Salszburg, Vienna, Budapest, Krakow, Berlin and Amsterdam.  I took so many photos and I am feeling inspired to draw and animate and only wish I could work faster.  Look for the European influences that will most likely appear in my work.

I started an animation on Friday night. A small short for acting, timing and FX practice and for fun.  The above is a VERY UNFINISHED captured still. Hoping that it will be more refined and finished in a week or so.  We shall see.  I shall post the finish product on this blog.

Currently suffering from severe jetlag and am hoping it wears off soon.... yesterday I could not get to sleep till 6AM and I woke up 4 hours later at 10:30AM.  Tsk, tsk.

I am also currently looking for animation and illustration work and taking a short course in 3D.  Should be fun!  Hoping to get more work soon though.

Hope you are all well and enjoying the Easter Holidays!

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…
