Sketchy, sketchy, sketchy!  Started a food diary again since that seems to be the only thing that can curb my sugar cravings.  It's something that holds you accountable the minute there's evidence anywhere.  This is not to say that I am depriving myself.  When there's a shindig, am all for a treat or two...however, it will become a problem if I don't keep that in check.  Just because am fit and healthy, it doesn't mean am not in danger of diabetes.  I am.  Both my mom and dad have a line of diabetes and the likelihood of me getting it is really high, simply because of genetics and I am a self-confessed sugar addict.  I would chow down boxes of oreos and wash it down with milk and maybe have a milo afterwards IF there weren't any consequences.  I remember when I finished, all by myself, with milk, a large box of cinnamon crunch in one day.  I did that in Canada and my goodness, when they say "large",they mean ridiculously humongous and I ate all of it.  All of it.  I had enough sugar in me to fuel an entire village....maybe even a city.

I love keeping fit, exercising and pushing boundaries with the body but I also want to eat myself to death via sweets when I decide it's time to retire and the diabetes won't matter anymore, cos let's face it, not much time left anyway.  That is, if I live to a ripe old age.  I am liable to work myself to death before that even happens.  Then, there's the whole diabetes thing.  I don't want to start injecting myself with insulin by the time am in my 40s and 50s, even my 60s!  I can still do so much at that age (if nothing accidental happens, God willing and fingers crossed).  I would like to still keep travelling, keep creating when am that age.  I want to keep doing stuff till am just not physically capable of it anymore...and when that happens......ALL THE OREOS IN THE WORLD WILL BE MINE!!!!  Or whatever I can fit in my mouth at the time.

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…

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…
