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!

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 endeavor to be a bit more frugal in the next production.

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, hallo!  I drew this a couple of weeks ago.  Hand drawn and inked and then colored in Photoshop.  I got inspired by dance and fashion while watching Project Runaway.  I ended up binge watching the last 4 seasons that were available on Netflix...while drawing!  I like watching shows....or maybe not watching shows really, while working since it doesn't require much brain power.  I actually made a cat drawing with the same dance theme and I have another idea, maybe I'll draw it up this Friday.  I haven't colored my cat one yet either and we have a busy weekend coming up.

I will be putting this up on my Redbubble shop.  Am hoping some time next week.  Will see if time is kind to me.

Rob and I have events on Saturday and possibly Sunday.  Fathers Day is coming up, though I suspect I will see mine when my sister comes back from a holiday and we'll go out for our normal family dinner.

The current episode my team is working on, at the studio, is tracking really well.  …
