Cyber Rabbit

Hello hello,

Hope all is well in the world for you all :)  I am in a better mood compared to the last time I posted.  I have been getting positive feedback from this gig am working on and it's amazing what a difference it makes.  I feel more encouraged knowing that I am improving and getting more into the swing of things and I just want to do even better from here.  I would like to thank everyone who commented on the last post and who contacted me to say encouraging and comforting words.  I truly appreciate it.

I went hiking and gym this weekend just past and it feels so good to be doing active stuff again and I love drawing and being in front of the computer creating but it is nice to be outdoors, look at the scenery and be inspired.  Gym is fantastic too....being active I find tends to stimulate my creativity and I tend to come up with a lot of solutions to my animation/illustration problems while exercising.  I also feel better getting back to work after a good workout...and maybe a nap ;)  Do other artist find this I wonder?  Exercise stimulating creativity?  I need to exercise anyway or I will turn into a boombah.  My love of all things sweet and comfort food will see to that if I don't counter it.  I just want to be a 100% again though.  Cycling and not being able to breathe properly does not mix :P

The above drawing is hand drawn and hand inked and shaded with copic pens.  I haven't done anything with my copics for ages and that's just criminal.  Copics are totally the best pens in the world for me. Brought into Photoshop for some post-love.  I felt like drawing something steam punk-ish and I do like characters with Rabbit Ears....

I will be going back to doing drawing requests soon...not to worry!

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.  …
