Air Balloon Screenprint


Howdy!  One of my screen printing pieces I did months ago.  Sorry, nothing new to put up.  I spent most of the day drawing and painting a new fish bone piece today but I didn't get it done.  Anyway, I am working on it as a "Valentines Special".  I don't really celebrate Valentines but nevertheless it's what inspired me to do the piece.  My first "school of fish" illustration ever!  So keep posted.  I am trying to get the illustration done for a Sticky Zine Fair to sell this Sunday.  I have never sold at a Zine fair before so this is going to be new and exciting!  Anyone down in Melbourne, come and visit!

Speaking of selling, I made another print sale today.  A lady saw one of my pieces at the launch and she bought it to decorate her office!  Wheeee!  I am very pleased.  It's the Steampunk Fish that got sold.  Every little bit helps..cos am going to be a student soon.  Tomorrow!!!  School starts tomorrow!  I am pretty excited and nervous.  I haven't been to school in 10 years!  Gosh...I am so old.  You know, I was the youngest when I took up the 2D animation Post Grad.  Now that I am starting 3D...I will probably be pretty close as being one of the oldest.  Bleh.

Yesterday, I had one of my toughest training sessions ever.  I was so ready to give up.  It was a cardio session and I hate cardio.  My friend, (who is training to be a Personal Trainer), wouldn't let me give up though and I amazed myself physically by discovering that after the initial wanting to give up, I still had a lot more in me to give.  It was an amazing feeling going beyond what I thought my limits where.  It's amazing what can be achieved with focus.  Now to apply this to every aspects of my life....that said...this year will be a year of focusing on goals and perhaps with a little luck and blessing I may actually achieve them.

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.  …
