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?
    Love the colours and background!

  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.

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…
