Monster Face 11


Hello, hello!  I am not in the zone today.  I don't know what it is...I think it's a combination of not sleeping well and that it is so gloomy right now (weather-wise) that I just want to be in bed.  Or maybe it's because am used to bouncing between different jobs when I need a break.  Not really the go in this gig.  I am totally enjoying it but there are definitely days when my animation powers seems to have left me.

The good new is, I've still been very productive.  Finished a new shot, did all my fix-ups and should have another shot done before home time tonight, leaving me one more shot to do for my first sequence ,(sequence is a sequence of shots within one episode), I have two and I am finishing off my first one at the very latest, this week).  Been working on my fixes and it's really little though funnily enough, the tougher the shot, the less fix-ups I have.  The easier it is, the more there was for me to fix....so perhaps am subconsciously not giving it as much thought cos it's easy.  I need to be more careful of that in my next batch of shots.

I want more fish.  I keep seeing new types of guppies I want to buy.  I told Justin about it this morning after training and I mentioned that the aquarium still had all this space and he reminded me that it's an aquarium, not a canvas.  I don't have to fill up the "white space" and that I should refrain so I don't end up overstocking the tank and end up making the fish unhappy.  It's all about the happiness of my guppies and loaches!  Oh, the loaches have started eating the snails and are getting along just fine with my guppies.  Yay!

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.
