Some more pics from my journal

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.

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 chocolates...so 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…

Hallo!  Ah....another month has passed and it's taken me a very long time to write.  I don't know what it is but I am struggling to keep this blog up to date at the moment.  Things have been super busy ever since I took the Animation Supervisor role in my current contract.  I find that I don't particularly enjoy turning on the computer after work and would prefer to just read comics to relax.

How am I finding it?  Different.  I miss just being responsible for myself and it's tiring keeping track of a lot of things and people at work.  I feel like I took my lead/senior animator role for granted.  I had to work this Saturday gone past too and though I feel pleased that we managed to resolve an issue that came up, am still feeling some trepidation on what may come up next.  It feels like am solving one problem after another.  Not without raging about it and my expletives have gotten even more colorful since starting the gig.

I have been spending way too much money too.  …
