On the Cartoon Network Monster Beach sizzle reel!

Fox Curls

Day 101 of illustrating straight!  Woo hoo!!  Feeling pretty good.

Soooo, taxes.  I don't like doing them, I don't like getting taxed and I am freaked out about it as I am a freelancer as we don't really get taxed till later and then it hits us. Hits us like an avalanche.  A really big avalanche and in that avalanche is a snow covered yeti....ready to take your limbs off... all at once.  Okay, so maybe that statement was a bit over dramatic, but you get the gist of it.  I am going to see the accountant next am trying to find the inspiration to sit down and sort out my paper work.  Gah.

Other news...if all goes well, I will have gigs till the end of the year which would be awesome!  I am also considering learning how to sculpt and wondering when to fit it in.  Also wondering...when to fit gym in this week.  I got a few due dates and projects am working on simultaneously.  It's nice to have work.  Not so nice is knowing all the earnings will go to tax.  Yup, I have taxes on the brain and deadlines.  Feeling a bit stressed but pleased with progress and opportunities coming at the same time.

Piece is done in Flash and Photoshop.

    Taxes hit me like a ton of bricks every year as well...I think it's more difficult for us creative types to moniter that kind of least for me it is..I need a secretary!
    Best of luck!!!

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!

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…

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…
