Hibernate


Howdy!  I spent a good few hours with Rob today drawing at the Giraffe cafe in the city.  You guys should go there and try the passion fruit bread and butter pudding.  Absolutely divine!  I have to learn how to cook it.  Anyhoo, we were there for four hours.   It's great having company while drawing.  It's nice to be inspired and just draw for fun and not for work or something with a due date.  That said, come next week I have to knuckle down on some illustration work and getting my zine done for the fair next Sunday.  Hopefully that goes well.

Drawing above is all staedler fineliners and no help from Photoshop.  Thought I would post up the original scanned piece today.  One of the few drawings I managed to get done while at the cafe!  I thought she looked like an Eskimo woman or someone rugged up or cocooned.

Rob helped install my air stone for my aquarium today too, very pleased with it but my aqua scaping has changed a bit and I want to re-do it.  Though, may have to wait at the next water change.  Ah, we also saw a really sad looking goldfish at the Giraffe cafe.  It was pretty depressing, the fish looked like it was just waiting for death.  Actually, I've been to a lot of aquariums were a lot of the fish looked pretty depressed.  I was in one aquarium the other day looking at the guppies and pretty much all of them had ripped tails.  I couldn't tell if it was fin rot or if the guppies in that tank just didn't play well together.  I am hoping to increase the number of guppies in my tank soon.  Am hankering for a yellow one especially.

Another big day of drawing tomorrow, I think I will be working on my zine and practicing on my hand drawings.  I did manage to do a couple today though!

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…

Space Chickens in Space Trailer

Hi, hi!  A trailer for the projects I've been working on all year at Studio Moshi, as an Animation Team Lead, has been released!  Here it is in all it's glory.  It's pretty fun and manic and colourful, with funny stories and appealing characters. All the good things that I enjoy when working on a project. 

It's always interesting when working with people from different countries and time zones, getting assets and feedback but it works.

We have 4 months left on this project.  Where did the time go?  It feels like it just zipped by.  I am looking forward to a break.  I think...this time around I will focus on getting my website done and working out all my social media accounts and perhaps a few new pieces as well.

Been doing budgets too.  I think I may have been eating out way too much and shopping, but hey...can't take money with you when you die!  That said, I think I will endeavour to be a bit more frugal in the next production.
