Bubble Catfish

Bubble Catfish!  An awesome new bubblegum/ aquarium (?)

Hah!  Check this out!  I drew this on the train on the way to gym.  On a bumpy and rickety train that kept braking and chugging along.  This is why the line work is all jagged.  Also, I drew this using only a 0.3 copic fine liner.  No pencils or erasures.  Lots of fun!  Am getting faster with these quick doodle things.  Anyhow, this is all hand drawn and hand coloured with coloured Copic pens!  A slight clean up in Photoshop.  I love Photoshop.

Am on day 13 out of 183 of drawing everyday till December 31.  I would like to thank people for their support thus far.  It is both inspiring and a motivation to keep going.

Today I did one of my harder shots on this pilot gig am working on and am getting good feedback.  I love action shots.  That said, they take a very long time to get right!  It took me ages just to get my roughs and timing to a point that I was happy and then did a clean block animation.  A block animation is when you pose the characters, no clean-up, no extraneous details and just put the main poses/keys in.  I also went to the gym for a run and a dip in the aqua lounge (love the aqua lounge) and dinner with one of my animator friends.  We had sushi burgers.  It tasted of awesomeness.

I am sad to say, I have not gotten very far with my monster loop and I know I keep saying this but I really would like more time on the day to get everything done!

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…
