Howdy, Day 73 and it had to be a quick one as I have more work to do tonight. I needed to take a break this afternoon and went to the city to do a little bit of shopping. A little retail therapy does wonders to ones mood. I find it did! Especially when there are bargains to be had! That said, I do have to get some work done now and make up for the hours I didn't do today. The joys of being a freelancer is the flexibility of time. So I can take breaks in a sunny day and then work till the wee hours of the morning if I please. That said though, watch the panic when work is slow or the insanity when there is too much to handle.
This was done in Flash and some textures in Photoshop. It has been a long time since I drew anything in Flash for my blog!
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&…
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…
