This was David Lee Pereira and I, 2 days before opening night.  Jemimah Clegg wanted to do an article about us and about the exhibition so she caught up with us while we were running around mad trying to figure out the hanging.  The exhibition was held at Pepper Cafe and should be up for a month!

To find out more about the exhibition, check out this article by Matto Lucas.

I had an amazing opening night.  I was actually quite worried.  This is my first joint exhibition and the first time I exhibited that wasn't part of a large group.  Not a whole lot of room to hide when there's only two artists.  Everyone said they had a great night and feedback for the work David and I did was incredibly positive.  A stranger came to approach me (neither a friend of mine or Dave's) just to thank me for putting up my work and that he loved it.  I was very touched.  Another stranger even gave Dave and I sunflowers to celebrate the opening.  I sold on opening night too which is amazing!  I am extremely happy with the results.  I would like to do more exhibitions, commission jobs and illustration jobs this year.  I would certainly like to exhibit with Dave again as well!

The staff of Peppers were incredible and I would love to do another show using the venue again.  They were very organized, helpful and everyone had a fantastic night! Was certainly amazing!!! They were also very accommodating with Dave and I hanging till late.  In the meantime, make sure to visit them for lunch and breakfasts!  They are also open till 6pm on Thursdays and Fridays, check them out for drinks!

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…
