Monster Face 17



I am really wishing for some time to sit down and do some proper illustrations just for myself and not just for work or exhibitions.  I just want to draw a couple of whimsical drawings in my head but I haven't had the time to sit down and do it lately.  When I have free time, it's been going to house chores, drawing properly for freelance and exhibiting pieces, and seeing my partner and friends.  There's really not a whole lot of time at the moment.  I just want to sit down for hours working on one nice piece just for me.  Sadly, this won't be the case over the next few months.  I've only had time to draw in-between scenes at work and then relaxing before bed by colouring up what I draw.  I suppose, I need to make more of an effort to bring proper sketchbooks to work and draw on my lunch break.  This may happen yet.

I enjoy the monsters and doodling on my notebook because I find it relaxing and I like not being too precious but then I see some fabulous works by people I follow on blogger and on Facebook and I am inspired, intimidated and frustrated by it all simultaneously.  Inspired, because I do want to make amazing pieces, intimidated because am not sure if I can ever reach that level and frustrated by my lack of time.  I have a lot of projects on my plate, both professional and personal.  I know I am doing a lot and I always take more.  I suppose my downfall is finding that balance.  Or needing sleep.  If I could lose sleep, I probably would.....

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 endeavor to be a bit more frugal in the next production.

Some journal entries!

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…
