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.

  1. Very wise sentiments Marta! And it seems that bunny is thoroughly enjoying the present here and not caring one whit about the past or the future...unless of course, it's the hope of more ear biting in the future!

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…
