Illustration Job: Steampunk Shoes

Something I illustrated late last year for a job.  It was for an app and one of the props requested was Steampunk Shoes.  I never used to draw any props but over the last 2 years, I started getting hired to design props and backgrounds which is absolutely awesome and it makes me more versatile as an illustrator.  It's good fun and I really enjoy it.

Studio work is going well and I am on target and having a good time with the work.  Looking forward to MOSTLY chilling out this weekend.  I say mostly as I still have freelance and personal paintings to do.  As always, it would be nice to have more robotic attributes and not need food, sleep and never getting tired.

I also managed to do this at training today.....


Pretty happy with that!  Next aim is to be able to hold the stand for longer and reduce the amount of support.  Considering this is my second time trying to do a handstand, am doing pretty well!  I remember being terrified of it and certainly being jealous by some of the kids back in school who could do it.  Now here I am...physically stronger and more fit than I ever was and am 33.  Having a personal trainer is one of the best things I have ever decided to do for myself and having Justin be my trainer has been fantastic.  He knows how to read me and I trust him to make sure I don't break my neck.

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…
