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.

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…
