The Teacher


Howdy all!

Day 16 out of 183.  Behold what I drew today....this character is a combination and exaggeration of the two teachers I truly despised back when I was in grade school and early high school.  Surely everyone has had a teacher that they did not like.  Well I remember that these two teachers well and truly embarrassed me in class and I didn't do anything wrong.  I had a strong american-ish accent even at a young age and it was stronger than the accent of my native language and this one teacher really picked on me for it.  Needless to say I was very happy to leave for Australia and I had a great time in high school and college here and speaking English all the time.  I still get asked about my accent constantly but I no longer get abused or ridiculed for it.  Then there was the sewing teacher that gave me a stomach ache every class.  She was a horrid and scary woman.

This was done with pencils and Photoshop.

  2. You have truly, brilliantly captured the essence of every bad teacher that ever was---evil creatures that they are. SO well done!! Yikes!

  3. Oh my, she does look daunting! I love the moldy, bloody color scheme too. I hope you had your share of good teachers as well as the demonic sort!

    Maybe they were sisters?

  5. Wait, I recognise this horrid teacher, she was the mean one who taught me history, you've captured her so well! :D
    I've had some brilliant teachers, in fact, I blame my favourite teacher who taught me maths for being a geek now :) but there were some horrid ones, and the one that I remember most clearly even now is my history teacher, she put me off wanting to learn about history for a long time.

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.

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…
