Happy Mother's Day


Happy Mother's Day to my own dearest mom as well to all the mothers out there.  I may have left the roost but when something comes up, like sewing clothes, burning my blanket and doona with an iron and getting something that's similar to bubble gum stuck on it, something to do with food, being sick...I still call home and ask my mum for some advice.  Sometimes, she fixes it, sometimes I get solutions for what needs to be done.  I still show her my artworks from time to time and still get some really good advice on how to improve it. 

My mom is the most multi-talented person I know.  From gardening, sewing, cooking, arts and crafts, sculpting, building, painting and she's a much better traditional artist than I will ever be and everything she has touched or attempted has flourished.  She's absolutely awesome and I wish I had half her talent.  I don't always agree with her decisions and I some times think that she would have been better of choosing a different path but this is to be expected.  No child will ever fully agree or appreciate everything their parent/parents do for them and I don't expect her to support all of my decisions either.  I know that my mom does things to the best of her abilities and that is all one could ever ask for and I appreciate her for it.  She is the most amazing woman I know.....she also has the most fantastic coconut macaroons known to man and I hope she passes down the recipe to me one day.

Happy Mother's Day Mom.

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.  …
