New Years Eve: 6 month drawing everyday Complete!


Illustration 183 and that is 6 months completed!  Goal achieved.  Woo hoo!  Happy New Years to everyone for later!  I am going out and having fun tonight in vintage form.  Yup, I have a cherry dress and am not afraid to wear it.  Tee hee hee! Might be giving away what am going to be dressed like tonight, ah well.

Year 2011 went by in a flash.  Here are some of the events that happened this year:

  • I went to Europe instead of Japan and had a fantastic time, despite the bedbugs in Austria. 
  • I managed to enter animations to loopdeloop every month this year without fail. 
  • I met and developed bonds with new people and social groups as well as letting go of some people I used to call friends.  
  • I got to experience Armageddon in full costume as well as the Zombie Shuffle...both events I have never gone to before.  
  • I drew everyday for 6 months and achieved that goal and with that I developed new illustration styles, became pretty good at copic pens and my watercolour skills are getting there too. Furthermore I finally came up a theme for an exhibition I want to do.   
  • I was constantly employed and have managed to live comfortably as a freelancer.  My animations have become noticeably better though my drawing of hands can certainly use some improvement.  
  • I finally bought a laptop after all these years despite a financial set-back.  
  • I have joined a studio containing a band of comic artists and animators at Squishface Studio..where we all do our own thing but with company and space.
I have plenty of things to be thankful for and I am so looking forward to 2012.  Working at the studio, trying to make an exhibition, going back to school to learn 3D animation from the ground up, it's insane.  I will be looking for more work to do at the same time as school by mid-January.  I also plan to be a bit more hardcore with gym/training.  I want to be fitter, slimmer and tougher before the year is out.  I want to be able to do proper pull-ups and achieved front splits.  I am hoping to have time to make a comic too..or at least a couple of strips.  Here's hoping I achieve all that!

Now, may everyone have a safe and Happy New Years whether or not you're celebrating or staying home in bed.  For all that read my blog, thank you and I hope you enjoyed the ride and there will be more posts next year.  May 2012 be awesome for you all!!!!

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…
