Burnt Noodles

Illustration 144.  Soooooooo....when I first moved out, my place had the kitchen and the computers in the same room..so I essentially developed the skills of cooking and working on the computer at the same time.  I now live in a new place and it is much bigger than my first.  Now the work room is in one end of the apartment and the kitchen is at the other end.  I still have the bad habit of leaving things boiling or in the oven.  In the old days, I would hear things and smell how things were cooking even though I had my back to it.  I now tend to forget about it instead.  Burnt noodles isn't my first disaster either.  I get so easily distracted by work or replying to emails.  I know I need to stay in the kitchen and wait for things to cook but.......bleh.

Oh!  It worked out though, I ended up making delicious grilled soy chicken, mash potatoes and steamed broccoli.  

I built my easel today....I had to improvise a bit....some of the screws didn't fit in right.....so I used a hammer.  The bright side is that it looks like the picture.  The bad part is..I better bring in some tape just for a little bit of reinforcement....

  2. Haha, this is great-- I have this problem too... My studio's upstairs so I can't hear the oven timer, & so many times I've "just run up to grab something'" then got sucked into work &... oops! It's especially awful when you're starving, I vow to stay downstairs while I do my Thanksgiving stuff at least!!

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…
