Angry Cat


Hello all!  Felt like breaking up the monsters with an angry cat.  I was doing some cat sketches on my notebook before going to the gym.

I was sorting out how much I need to pay for taxes this year and .....oh my....it's going to be a big one.   I need to buy some equipment too before the tax year ends.  Sigh.  Money,  I don't care what anyone else says, it does buy you some amount of happiness.  Like security, new clothes, food and fun.  No money, means you can't do a whole lot of things.  A lot of fun costs money nowadays you know! So aside from needing to tighten my belt  am going to take on as much freelance work as I could possibly do to supplement income and stuff.  Got to bite the bullet.  I want to do certain things, so am going to work for it.  Certainly not going to be lending out cash or anything like that this year...money as a freelancer is equal to security.  Having that taken away is so disheartening and it drives me crazy.

It's a hard balance.  You can't take money with you when you die and you don't want to live to work either but money pays for the stuff I love like eating out, travelling, gym and the occasional shopping spree.  Money pays for my lifestyle, paying rent and bills and being to afford equipment and supplies as I need them.  It's difficult....lucky for me, I love my job.  I do love freelancing and working on different projects and I find myself very fortunate to be able to afford stuff because of it.

Now back to work!

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!

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…

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…
