House of Birds Exhibition Opening Night.

During hanging photo by Jemimah Clegg
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!

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 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…

Outfit of the Day 024

Hallo! This outfit was from weeks ago now when we did Formal Thursday.  First time I wore my hair in a bun and a long time since I appeared in business attire.  I find our weekly clothing themes so much fun.  I have a lot more to post here too.  I borrowed some earrings off Astri because I misplaced the earrings I was originally wearing.  Turns out I accidentally tucked it into my shirt.

Dean did the Photoshop goodness for the Jazz album rendition. 

Anyway, things have been busy with delivering episodes, my weekends and Fridays are now booked for the next 3 weeks with birthdays and I have a Kid Lit conference on the 19th.  Busy, busy, busy!  Trying to exercise and move more and not eat as much but it does get hard

I spent the weekend at a baby shower, doing my taxes and catching up with outfit of the day drawings.  I just finished number 33...pretty awesome.  I can't remember the last time I made over 30 using the same medium, subject and style.  Am pretty happy about that.  Now…
