IF: Perennial


Day 24 out of 183 and this is my submission for Illustration Friday, the theme: Perennial.  To be honest I had no idea what to draw until a friend on facebook suggested I draw a circle.  So here it is!  Couldn't just draw normal circle you know! Done with fine liners, and scanned into Photoshop.

I am really pressed for time today.  Work looks like it's picking up and I am busy now but looks like I will be even busier soon.  Just how I like it.  There were a few months this year where I was not as busy and I did miss it.  The juggling of projects, personal work and social life.  I always feel like I need to be doing something or I get very agitated and fidgety.  Having money from the gigs will be awesome too once I get paid :P  It will cover all those books I bought at Readers Feast.  Life of a freelancer you know.  Irregular pay and jobs but I do enjoy it.  Beats working in a job I hate, methinks.  I get that sometimes it's a necessity and people get freaked out over lack of security.  I get freaked out over lack of security but for me, and maybe it's because I don't have kids or anything or a mortgage, I think doing what I love, despite the fact it's a roller coaster ride, is worth it.

  1. Oh, what a clever interpretation of IF prompt, love it. I so wanted to start doing illustrations for IF again but when I saw the prompt for this week I just felt totally uninspired so I'm skipping it again, booo! :)

  7. I love this approach to the perennial prompt, & could really identify with the obsessive one as well.

    My perennial problem is an obsession with time-consuming projects, & animation is probably the craziest thing I've taken on! It's going very, very slowly... but I do enjoy it!

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…
