Inked Cat


A real quickie today and not even the one I was planning to draw.  I saw a friend in the morning and it was lovely to catch up.  I was working till about 2am last night after I got home from badminton and dinner.   I love being a freelancer since I have flexibility but it does come with a price.  Never being sure what's around the corner; jobs showing up, jobs dropping out, delays in payment, deadlines coming all at once, all jobs drying up at once....I do love freelancing though.  I miss studio environments which is why I joined my friends when they formed the comic studio.  I also want a back-up in the freelance world that is still in the animator profession, which is why am going back to school to learn 3D.  Wheeee!  Fun all around.

Spent most of today animating a shot for the pilot gig.  Almost there...got to do a bit more tomorrow and will hopefully get it done tomorrow night.  I didn't get a chance to study Maya today.  Grrrr.... I think I need to dedicate a couple of days to it a week...hopefully later this week.

Some journal entries!

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!

IF: Burning

Howdy! This is my illustration for Illustration Friday and the theme is Burning.  I wanted to do something simple with bold colours and I went for "burning passion" and why not?  I think it's the type of burning most people wont mind at all.  This was illustrated in Flash. I bought two awesome fashion books today: Dreaming of Chanel and Dreaming of Dior.  I would definitely recommend them!

IF: Remedy

"Little Benny is off to remedy a pest problem" Howdy, When the theme "Remedy" for Illustration Friday came about, this came to my head.  I suppose I always had a thorough and maybe a tad bit on the overkill side when it comes to remedying certain problems.  I got bitten by bedbugs while I was in an Austrian hostel and this is exactly what I wanted to do...eradicate the nasty little creatures from the face of the planet.  This is hand drawn and then scanned into Photoshop for colouring. I went hiking again today. Went hiking in the rain and mud in the Dandeong ranges and treated myself to scones afterwards.  Not a bad day at all.  Keeping active and having a balance between work and staying at home all the time and just trekking outdoors really helps me focus on what I need to do.
