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.....

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!

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 endeavor to be a bit more frugal in the next production.

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…
