#cc3333, #339933 and #336699


Day 08 of illustrating straight.  Woo hoo!   This week will be interesting though as that pilot job am working on will be ramping up and it is one of the harder jobs I've ever worked on.  Looks so frickin awesome though!  I suspect that when it's done, it will be one of the jobs that I will be proud to say I worked on.  This was all illustrated in Flash using the colours:#cc3333, #339933 and #336699 which was the theme for this weeks "Art Jumble Blog".    

I will need to start illustrating in Illustrator too.  It just takes so darn long though compared to when I draw it up in Flash.

I went to a bookstore that was closing down today.  It is one of my favourite bookstore's too.  It made me feel really sad that they are closing.  Most of the bookstores I know are closing down and I wonder if it's because of competition with the internet.  It's just that buying books in an actual store is so expensive compared to when I buy it online.  Also ,while the Australian dollar is high, it's probably a smart thing to do.  That said, I bought a lot of books today and most of them were fashion books.  I do love fashion design and illustration.  Always have.  I can't sew though....it was something that scared me off taking a fashion design course.  That and I loved painting and drawing more so I took Visual Arts and Animation instead.  A part of me is thinking of doing a course in fashion though.  It would be awesome to design clothes and make them and then wear them!

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…

Space Chickens in Space Trailer

Hi, hi!  A trailer for the projects I've been working on all year at Studio Moshi, as an Animation Team Lead, has been released!  Here it is in all it's glory.  It's pretty fun and manic and colourful, with funny stories and appealing characters. All the good things that I enjoy when working on a project. 

It's always interesting when working with people from different countries and time zones, getting assets and feedback but it works.

We have 4 months left on this project.  Where did the time go?  It feels like it just zipped by.  I am looking forward to a break.  I think...this time around I will focus on getting my website done and working out all my social media accounts and perhaps a few new pieces as well.

Been doing budgets too.  I think I may have been eating out way too much and shopping, but hey...can't take money with you when you die!  That said, I think I will endeavour to be a bit more frugal in the next production.
