Monster Face 12


I have been eating a lot of  Japanese food out during lunch times at work at this very nice local Japanese place in Richmond called the Happy Kappa.  Though, I think from hereon to save my pennies, i may only eat there once a week or every other week now.  Good cheap food though which I quite enjoy and it's nice being out of the studio every now and then.

Anyhoo, this monster face is close to a Japanese demon (an oni) which I am sure is similar to something I've seen before.  I really want to go to Japan.  If I was to die this minute, my biggest regret is not enjoying some time in Japan.  I miss learning Japanese and I do wish I had the time to just squeeze everything I want to do in life in.  I want to know and learn more about Japanese culture and they're definitely my favourite cuisine hands down.  We used to go to this great Japanese place every Sunday with the family called Shiroi Hana.  I loved that place and I always found it something to look forward to.  

I  am hoping to travel after this current contract ends and have enough cash to do that and survive again as a freelancer once I get back.  We shall see how things pan out though.  Two years is a long time to plan anything in advance and you never know what spanner in the works or other opportunities could be thrown in!  Japan and more of Europe is on my list.  If I could travel for 6 months....my goodness, that would be amazing.  Hoping to have company with me on my adventures too along the way....experiences are good to share with someone..so you can look back at the memories together.

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.
