WAH!!!


I am bemoaning on just how unfit I am.  Seriously....I was hoping to be a lot tougher but am not.  Oh well, this is the reason why I asked a friend to help me train.  Sheesh....I totally enjoyed it though.  Don't get me wrong, nice to get adrenalin going, heart pumping and an endorphin hit and it is good to get an idea on how much more I have to do to reach my fitness goals and what's more, it's great to have company and a watchful eye.  Let's face it, many of us don't physically train (unless we're trying out for a major sporting event) to our absolute limits.  The mind starts screaming, "STOP, I FEEL PAIN AND AN UNCOMFORTABLE BURNING SENSATION" long before the body is actually ready to give up.  In short, I have some physical goals and I want to achieve them, so am gonna suck it up. No pain, no gain.

I am also moaning about not having enough time to do everything this month.  Yes, it's been the recurring theme lately.  I like to think of myself as efficient and with abilities to get into a project/job and see it through and I am frustrated that I can't go any faster or accomplish much more than what I already am in a day.  I mean, I don't want to do nothing but work.  I did that straight for 3 years when I first started freelancing and trust me, things can get most unpleasant with that sort of thing.  I have started enjoying my life as a freelancer more when I actually took breaks, got myself physically exerting hobbies and spending money on travel.  I would like to continue to do that however with school coming up...I have no idea what to expect!  Simultaneously terrifying and exciting.

Anyway, it was good today.  I got a bit of work done, have a few more to do before bedtime and I got my exercise.  Life is good and I can't complain.

PS. I am under no false illusions that I won't be hurting tomorrow.  I am going to be hurting and am sure I will be swearing with every step I take.  Lower body is what was trained today.

Drawing Request 08: A rancid baby teething on the enterprise while a stray shrink ray lies on the porch of the redneck family.

Day 34 and I've finally done another one of the drawing requests.  Only 2 more to go! This one is for my friend Peter Douglas, he requested this on facebook a while back, his request: A rancid baby teething on the enterprise while a stray shrink ray lies on the porch of the redneck family.  This was done with fineliners and brought into photoshop.

I am worried about what's going to happen after the pilot gig.  It's been really slow this year and with financial crisis looming...who knows what's going to happen.  I've never done any other sort of work that wasn't creative...with the exception of that one summer job I had working at a chocolate factory and admittedly that was fun.  Oh the chocolates...so many chocolates...ending up in my pocket (it was all perfectly legal, they encouraged workers to eat chocolates thinking that will make us all sick of it....obviously they didn't know that I could live solely on chocolates).   Anyway, I can't complain, I&…

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…

Hallo!  Ah....another month has passed and it's taken me a very long time to write.  I don't know what it is but I am struggling to keep this blog up to date at the moment.  Things have been super busy ever since I took the Animation Supervisor role in my current contract.  I find that I don't particularly enjoy turning on the computer after work and would prefer to just read comics to relax.

How am I finding it?  Different.  I miss just being responsible for myself and it's tiring keeping track of a lot of things and people at work.  I feel like I took my lead/senior animator role for granted.  I had to work this Saturday gone past too and though I feel pleased that we managed to resolve an issue that came up, am still feeling some trepidation on what may come up next.  It feels like am solving one problem after another.  Not without raging about it and my expletives have gotten even more colorful since starting the gig.

I have been spending way too much money too.  …
