IF:Swamp


My entry to Illustration Friday "Swamp".  Hehehehe, I actually thought it was "swamped" to be honest.  Oops.

When I have a lot of things going on, I tend to make a list everyday of the things I need to do and achieve, I've had so much to do lately and especially last week that I felt a bit swamped by the whole thing.  The list of things to do just never ended and kept on increasing.  I love being busy and I think for the most part I manage my time really well.  I know what am willing to give up in order to achieve what needs to be done.  That said, it can get a little overwhelming once in a while but who hasn't experienced this?  Well..maybe not drowning in a sea of lists as that would suck but the whole having a lot to do at once part.

This was done with copic fineliners.  The BG actually has crosshatchings on it but it got a little lost in the photoshop texturing.  You can still see bits of it though!

Need to sleep now, an early start tomorrow!

  3. Wow, overwhelming paperwork seems like a bit of an understatement for this one! So cool how you made waves and clouds and the poor little tiny figure being swept along. Great idea and great execution!

  4. Super illustration looks really good. The sea of lists is really effective.

  5. Brilliant! Love the menacing clouds overhead and the way the waves of post-it notes (?) are forcing her forward - and luckily not backwards! Background is amazing! Have felt like this poor girl many times - just go with the flow... :)

  6. Aaaaaaaaaahhhh! Throw the poor girl a lifeline! This is fantastic! Lots of wonderful detail and it totally captures the feeling of being swamped. I love the movement. :D

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!

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…

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…
