Seriously...


I am a busy girl.  No really, am not just saying that.  I freelance on more than one job, I try to make it to the studio at least 3 times a week, I train twice a week,  run another 2 times in the week and I go to school for 2 full 8 hour days and 1 half day learning 3D. Then not to mention events like exhibitions, comic launches, creative meet-ups and dare I say it, catching up with the occasional friend. Let's not forget time to sleep (a rare thing) , eat, get the food to eat and basic living chores and necessities.... I have a full plate.  When I do have free time, I either rest or try to catch up with someone I haven't seen in a while.  If I have time I will text individuals if they can come out to play.  Sometimes they're available, sometimes they're not.  No big deal.  Am sure if we both live long enough we'll see each other again.

 If I don't make an event for whatever reason, this is not to be taken personally and not to be thought of as "you never see me on my terms" sort of situation.  I do try my best to make all events.  Am sure we're all guilty of thinking this at one time or another towards individuals...and seriously, we all need a bit of perspective at that time.  I certainly do, as I have acted naggy to a few individuals in my life.

If there is work, or anything that involves it, I will be prioritizing that.  I am a freelancer.  Work facilitates me being able to do stuff outside of work. I will and have prioritized that over social events and if I am tired and grouchy after a 12 hour day and don't want to put on a smiley face to meet people, I really don't have to.  I do my best to juggle everything.  It wasn't that hard socializing when it was just work and studio but with school in the picture, I really don't have a lot of give in my time.

Note that my focus this year is Freelance, Study, Training and the Studio.  Everything else, I will play by ear and squeeze it in best I can.

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.  …
