Dream chocolate and a lot of other written stuff

Chocolate I drew a few days ago during brekky.  I have been very busy these last couple of weeks.  I've been taking on a lot as my current full-time contract will be ending in just a couple of months and I've been doing double...triple..jobs... essentially anything I can get.  On top of that, I've been working on a side project that I cannot reveal here until it has been submitted, I am studying Japanese every night before bed and going to a private tutor once a week.  I will soon be taking the class.  Goodness, I don't feel ready for it at all.  I've also been submitting my work to places that might bring in revenue...but we shall see.  Trying to be an artist and producing stuff and taking the time to frame or get it framed and bringing it to different places, is a full-time job in itself and here I am trying to do both simultaneously. 

I prefer to kill as many birds as I can with one stone.  It's the only way for me to get things done.  That and not sleeping.  I haven't been sleeping much to try and fit everything in.  I truly enjoy being busy but I think I am classified as crazy busy.  Every time I get something done...there's another project that suffers.  For instance, the last week and a half I had 2 freelance jobs, working hard on my full-time contract and this side project....not to mention urban sketching for a zine ( a good example of killing two birds with one stone)...what is suffering?  Well, I haven't been able to get as far with my character designs on this film am working on with a friend, I still have two commissions to do, I haven't been doing daily sketches as my time for doing that has been taken over by the side project and studying Japanese, I want to start a new series of pieces but I can't, I still have shirts to design, places to submit to, folios, and showreels to update, need to create a new and fancy website, go everywhere in Melbourne Urban Sketching!! It's crazy!  I might actually be busy all the way till am old...(which is preferred, rather than doing nothing and waiting for death) but for as long as I can keep working as an artist/animator/illustrator, I don't think I will stop.  The day I can't work anymore, will probably be the same day that it's "game over".

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…
