IF: Suspense


Oh no!  Are they playing tag or is it something a bit more sinister?  A rush job tonight am afraid.  I actually doodled this at 3D school while at lunch time.  I went off on my own today for lunch.  I just wanted to relax and draw.  Shut down for a little bit.  I shall socialize with fellow students tomorrow lunchtime. I have barely spoken to anyone the last few days.  I've just been concentrating on the tasks at hand in school and formulating plans on how I could make the tutorials am doing more folio worthy.  Because at the end of the day, that's what I need to show to people and I can't waste the opportunities.  learn how to do something.  Then do it again and make it better.

Being back at school is challenging.  I painted after school last night.  Then today I trained after school, putting up this post and then am going to go and do more painting because I need to do the prints and the scans at the very latest on Saturday night.  It is challenging juggling everything.  I freelance, I am trying to establish myself as an illustrator/artist with my fish bones and learning 3D, as well as training.  I do need the training, keep myself fit and active and to help break down the mental barriers in my head. 

Training with Justin today was tough.  I have been training with Justin for a month now.  I hired him as my personal trainer at the start of the year.  I have started to lose my drive at the gym and my food eating habits got a bit worse and I missed having challenges and someone there to just kick my ass into gear.  I don't have the mental capabilities to train myself in a manner that could get me to my ideal fitness and to be able to physically do certain things that I have always wanted to do. The mental barriers that break at exercise will stick with me outside of it.  I need to break some mental demons.  I am not to a point that I am happy with yet.  I will get there though.   Training with Just has been awesome though!  I look a whole lot better, am trimmer, I can see progress, I am fitter than I have been in a long time and I do enjoy it.  I mean, I am wrecked at training but I really do enjoy it.  I really am a sucker for punishment.  Tsk.

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.  …
