Yawn!


Day 26 and here it is.  Can you tell what I am feeling right now?  I need sleep.  That's what I need...sleep I tell you!  I have been a bit flat out since last week.  Don't get me wrong, I rather this hectic and having a bazillions things to do rather than nothing at all.  That said I do need to sleep tomorrow night and I definitely need to go to the gym.  I haven't been since last Saturday!  Pathetic! 

Anyhoo, this was sketched up while waiting for a train at the station, a quick 10 minute sketch and then scanned into Photoshop.  I am hoping to draw something a bit more refined this coming weekend.  I may have forgotten to mention that I have taken the habit of having a sketchbook and pens on me at all times so I can do sketches like this in the lull periods for my daily drawing challenge.  Lull periods meaning waiting for trains or friends....not much lull period any time else....

I am working for a studio I've worked at before for a few days.  They have a project due next Wednesday and though the animation is incredibly simple (and I mean simple) there is a lot of it to get through and I need to do other work on top of that.

I am also very happy with my last batch of shots for the pilot gig.  Some animations in there that I cannot wait to put on my reel!  I am really proud of them and I also discovered how much I love action shots.  So much fun!


I am still waiting to hear back from a couple of gigs.  I really hope I get them!  It would be so cool!

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…

Hallo!  Ah....another month has passed and it's taken me a very long time to write.  I don't know what it is but I am struggling to keep this blog up to date at the moment.  Things have been super busy ever since I took the Animation Supervisor role in my current contract.  I find that I don't particularly enjoy turning on the computer after work and would prefer to just read comics to relax.

How am I finding it?  Different.  I miss just being responsible for myself and it's tiring keeping track of a lot of things and people at work.  I feel like I took my lead/senior animator role for granted.  I had to work this Saturday gone past too and though I feel pleased that we managed to resolve an issue that came up, am still feeling some trepidation on what may come up next.  It feels like am solving one problem after another.  Not without raging about it and my expletives have gotten even more colorful since starting the gig.

I have been spending way too much money too.  …
