Workin' before gym...at 6:20 am


Hello, hello.  Thought I'd take a shot of me working at the cafe next to my gym.  This was me early in the morning, downing a coffee before my 7:15 am session.  I am pleased to say that I managed to get 2 out of 4 illustrations fully inked today.  That said...I have another batch to rough out and submit for approval over the next few days though.

I am currently working on a rather long and tough shot at work at the moment and it's taken a bit more than two days to do just because it's really massive.  So massive it started freezing up on me this afternoon.....about 7 times to be exact.  I got so frustrated that I decided to look at it with fresh eyes tomorrow morning because the last bit of animation is really very simple.  If only the darn file would stop chugging!  Anyway, I did manage to hide/turn off everything I am not animating tomorrow so hopefully the last section will go smoothly.  Here's hoping.

For other news: always be alert when crossing the road, even if you have right of way.  Like having a green pedestrian light.  I was almost hit by a car today as a woman drove over the pedestrian crossing too far trying to beat the yellow light then proceeds to back up, not see me on the crossing when am right of way and almost hit me.  I saw her though and am pretty alert...most of the times.  Anyway, a rather unpleasant experience and a reminder that there are a lot of idiots on the road and that anyone is vulnerable to an accident at any given time.

Anyhoo, early night tonight.  Got a 6:30 am gym session before work tomorrow!

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.

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…

Fox Trot

Hallo, hallo!  I drew this a couple of weeks ago.  Hand drawn and inked and then colored in Photoshop.  I got inspired by dance and fashion while watching Project Runaway.  I ended up binge watching the last 4 seasons that were available on Netflix...while drawing!  I like watching shows....or maybe not watching shows really, while working since it doesn't require much brain power.  I actually made a cat drawing with the same dance theme and I have another idea, maybe I'll draw it up this Friday.  I haven't colored my cat one yet either and we have a busy weekend coming up.

I will be putting this up on my Redbubble shop.  Am hoping some time next week.  Will see if time is kind to me.

Rob and I have events on Saturday and possibly Sunday.  Fathers Day is coming up, though I suspect I will see mine when my sister comes back from a holiday and we'll go out for our normal family dinner.

The current episode my team is working on, at the studio, is tracking really well.  …
