IF: Popularity (aka Half a Dozen Roses)

Did you know that if you give someone 6 red roses it means " I want to be yours".  It would certainly increase your popularity with that person.  My first school of flower fish.  Did you guys notice the bunnies?  It's nice to travel with company.

I went and sold my zine and a print of this image at a zine fair today.  I've never done it and I had a great time and sold a few things too.  Anyone interested in this print?  There are still some left!  Send me an email and we'll work something out ;)  I did find it interesting that people didn't notice that they were fish.  I shall label the signage next time.  I am thinking of releasing a limited edition picture book of this series.  I am currently working on a pair of Bluebell fish.

I also trained today.  I had McDonalds before training.  Note to self, never have that junk ever again.  Meh, I was silly and in a rush to get back to the Zine fair.  I paid for it at training though.

Much work needs to get done tomorrow...I think I may have an early night and just get right into it.  Need to do some stuff in the afternoon though before places close.


  1. Took a second look to see the fish and a third to see the rabbits. Great work. I also love your show reel : ]

  2. Bravo and congratulations on your sales. Your clients now posses beautiful art work.

  3. Haha wow, what an awesome painting. I did notice they were fish, but only after a double take. I did not notice the bunnies until I read the description but what cute bunnies! Beautiful details and shading and really great depth of color. Congratulations on the fair sales!

  4. Wow, this is so interesting and unique. I am quite mesmerized. I saw the fish right away but not the bunnies. Very nice work and thanks for the comments on mine. :)

  5. This is GREAT! I can't believe some people didn't notice the fish. The bunnies make it for me, though. Again...GREAT work!!!

  6. This is GREAT! Colored pencil?

    I spotted the fish right away but I'm glad you told us about the rabbits. Thanks for the "tip" about half-a-dozen, I didn't know that :).

  7. I noticed the fish before I noticed they were roses, but it took me longer to realize that the "thorns" were the fish bones. Wonderful imagination!

  8. Oh, Marta! They're fantastic! Gorgeous bunch/school! The colors are vibrant. I think the best paintings are ones where you see more and more, the longer you look at it.

    And your school projects are pretty darn cute, too. :D

  9. WOW! so fabulous, love the fish, I had to look again for the bunnies. Love this.

  10. this is absolutely brilliant!!!
    wow i soooo want to give those roses to my love ;)


  11. Really good job, It's so original, the fishbones hidden like roses..! And the bunnies are lovely :) Very colorful all!

  12. Very, very creative! Well done!

  13. gaaahwd.., you brilliant animator of wonders.(*//*)

  14. Fantastic! Love the way you've hidden images in there - espcially the fish skeleton foliage! What is a Zine Fair? Hope this isn't a dumb question...

  15. Great image - and what does it mean when you offer someone a boquet of six fish? I want to cook you dinner? I'd say yes!

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…
