Too Cute!!!!!


Howdy everyone!  Day 79 of illustrating everyday...thought I'd draw these characters again and see if I could improve on the style just for fun.  I draw so many different things and characters, sometimes it's nice to develop existing designs and see how much cuter they can get!  I just felt like drawing something cute.  For those who are curious...the cat is biting the bunny's ear.  Done in Flash.

Pretty much spent all of today working, it was a nice and sunny day too.  I prefer to be stuck indoors working in front of a computer when there is a storm out and am sure most people think that...unless you do outdoor work...

People, myself included, think too much of the future or the past and not really taking the time to enjoy the present.  We can plan all we want for the future, knowing very well that the decisions in the present "could" affect it but am sure most people have had the experience of a monkey wrench being thrown into those plans by some unforeseen event/person.  Then there are the people who can't enjoy the present (or even the nearby future) cause they are so stuck in the past.  All the ghosts that haunts them and it ruins any enjoyment that the present people/situations can bring.  Of course not thinking about the past or present is bad too because you don't learn your mistakes from the past and you don't prepare for what may come in the future.  Balance is the key to all these things...people spout about it all the time but it's true.

"The past is history, the future is a mystery, but today is a gift.  That is why it is called the 'present'. 
Quoted from the Kung Fu Master Turtle (Master Oogway) from Kung Fu Panda 01....though am sure it's an old existing quote but I have no idea who.  Yeah, am a nerd and a cartoon buff, but I have an excuse!  Am an animator after all.

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…

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 endeavour to be a bit more frugal in the next production.
