Wondering.....


 Hi there,

I saw this site today by Ben Hood and he illustrates every day and is currently up to illustration #165.  It is very impressive and insane!  I did something similar last year in April 2010 and the goal was to illustrate every day for the whole month.  I got up to 32 illustrations.  Anyhow, I thought I would give it a go again, drawing something every day (that includes sketches and animation roughs :P ), though not necessarily folio pieces....that would be crazy!  That said, I will do my utmost best to make the drawings I do as good as possible.  I will try a 6 month mark..so until December 31 of this year!

This drawing is hand drawn and coloured and textured up in photoshop.  The image is influenced by a photograph that my good friend, Leisl took on her holiday.

I am currently working on one small game, some illustrations for a university and an animated pilot but am still looking for more work especially towards the last few months of this year.  It has been rather scary as the animation industry has been very slow in Melbourne this year.  I can't really see what I will be doing after August and it does worry me a bit.  I have a lot of personal projects that I am trying to develop and studying certain programs as well.  Just have to take it as it comes.

Anyhow...this is technically the second illustration in a row as I finished my piece for Illustration Friday yesterday :D

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.

Some journal entries!

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…
