Drawing Request 01: Tim and Ben holding hands


Howdy!

How is everyone?  Since getting back from my Europe holiday I have been working on small animation jobs and am currently looking for more work.  I joined a gym instead of going back to kickboxing and that 3D course I was going to do a week ago got cancelled due to lack of numbers so I am on the search for a new one.  There's a possibility of that starting in July.  We shall see.  I have also been working on my own very small animation which is taking ages.

In the meantime, I am drawing requests.  On my Facebook page I asked for people to send in their drawings requests and I will draw the first 10 given.  It all started when I gave friends: Tim Merks and Ben Grimshaw a couple of left of field drawings to do and I decided to return the favour.  Which may backfire.  Here are the list of requests to be done in any order and if it's highlighted then it's completed!:


1)  BEN: I want a flying cyborg octopus, that is in the bowels of hell, fighting off a horde of demons with his varied lasers, and being aided by his sloth sidekick.

2) TIM:  An episode of 'So you think you can dance' where the judges are being harsh at the performance of a giant T-Rex who is (rather than getting angry) is trying to hold back the tears of the public humiliation. Oh I'm sure he's wearing some kind of costume

3) LOMBARDI: Draw Tim and Ben holding hands
4) DANIEL: Requests you say... :P
How about a giant Kitty using a giraffe-shotgun to fight vampire-hulk. In space.

5) AARON: Request: A movie poster for the film "Machete" that would lead one to believe that it was a romantic comedy.
6) MARTIN: Woolly Mammoth paratroopers!
7) SANDRA: giant evil rabbit eating the longest pizza on Guinness world record actually, giant evil sumo rabbit
8) DEAN: a kitten and a baby fox playing in a field of flowers
9) PETE: A rancid baby teething on the enterprise while a stray shrink ray lies on the porch of the redneck family.
10) BEN: i get the last one...nice! okay, i want to see all the Disney princesses clinging to driftwood, in very heavy seas. a ghost ship, from the 1700's English colonial fleet is approaching them, and it's raining miniature grandfather clocks that are shattering when they hit the waves. enjoy.
 The last one, needless to say will be very painful to do.
Anyway, I managed to finish one last night.  The request by talented  illustrator and animator, Michael Lombardi.     To draw Ben and Tim holding hands.  Thought I'd go for a more comic-like feel or a very cute propaganda poster.
More to come soon.

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…

Outfit of the Day 024

Hallo! This outfit was from weeks ago now when we did Formal Thursday.  First time I wore my hair in a bun and a long time since I appeared in business attire.  I find our weekly clothing themes so much fun.  I have a lot more to post here too.  I borrowed some earrings off Astri because I misplaced the earrings I was originally wearing.  Turns out I accidentally tucked it into my shirt.

Dean did the Photoshop goodness for the Jazz album rendition. 

Anyway, things have been busy with delivering episodes, my weekends and Fridays are now booked for the next 3 weeks with birthdays and I have a Kid Lit conference on the 19th.  Busy, busy, busy!  Trying to exercise and move more and not eat as much but it does get hard

I spent the weekend at a baby shower, doing my taxes and catching up with outfit of the day drawings.  I just finished number 33...pretty awesome.  I can't remember the last time I made over 30 using the same medium, subject and style.  Am pretty happy about that.  Now…
