IF: Storm


Hello, hello!  Well, my internet connection just suddenly died on me and right before I was about to submit a project too.  I had to call up a phone technician and I must commend these people, especially the one who I was speaking to, for their patience and for putting up with people losing their tempers like me.  Am not that great when I need to submit something and the internet goes down when I crucially need it.  It is sometimes difficult to remember that the person on the other line has feelings and are trying their best to fix the problem.  Anyway, if you are reading this Ms bigpond cable technician, thank you again for your patience.

So, aside from freelance work, I was trying to get this up, my submission to Illustration Friday: Storm.  Perhaps more appropriate than I realized...I looked a lot like this when the internet went down.  Except with less hair and more clothes.  The rest was pretty accurate.

Funnily enough, another issue was what spurred this drawing on in the first place.  I was thinking of the impossibility of me ever owning my own house since I am a freelancer and pay is obviously erratic.  I need a whole lot of cash behind me and I may have been able to do it but life tends to throw a spanner in the works so this may not happen now.   I would never give up the creative life but it still puts me in a mood so to speak.  I get a little frustrated by it all.  Still, I am in a profession I love, I am good at it and I have a pretty good life and I can spend my money keeping my fish happy who are a lot less maintenance than a house so it's a win, win! 

Oh...another thing that put me in a stormy mood.....I over boiled my eggs and therefore killed dinner.  I got distracted with work.  I suspect that I tend to make sure that my fish have proper sustenance compared to what I do for myself.....

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.
