IF: Obsession

Ever had something that kept you awake at night? Just keep thinking about the things you might have done or said or what you didn't do or say?  Ever obsessed about it so much that it haunts your every waking moment?  I think the best solution to that and that has worked for me was to try and get some perspective by talking to other people or by simply stepping back from the problem.  Another thing is to just accept that what's done is done and the only thing that is left to do now is to try to not repeat the same mistake next time.  
  
Day 27 of illustrating straight and my submission to Illustration Friday.  I have been incredibly busy this week, hence why all my drawings have been in ink form and sketched in less than 15 minutes.  Has anyone noticed that the shape of the most recent drawings are all squarish?  That's because the new sketchbook that I always have in my handbag is square.  It's a little annoying though as I've had to tear the pages out of the sketchbook when I want to scan it in because the rings on it are quite large so my drawings end up half blurry if I don't tear it out.  Very annoying but I may have found the solution when I scanned this piece.  This time around.  I pressed down hard on the lid of the scanner to get a clearly scanned image.  Awesome!  Anyhow, this was done with fine liners and scanned into Photoshop.

My weekend is looking packed with work and social events and I am going to need to fit gym in there!  I couldn't go all week this week.  I don't like that!  I can't support my dessert obsession without counteracting it with gym!

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.
