Me by the window, enjoying the sun as I draw.  I got to sit down instead of standing up!
All coloured up.  sunning myself indoors!

This took forever!!!  No pencils once again, done with a 01 Staedtler pen and coloured with staedtler fineliners and mepxy and copic markers.  Whoo! I spent my whole morning drawing this piece.  The pieces are not very big at all, like half an A4 size and yet this took me hours to get done.  This took almost 4 hours!!!  I should do bigger and more finished pieces at home, based on the sketches I do when am out and about.  I was onn my opwn sketching in the morning and I couldn;t go to the bathroom or eat until the piece was finished, otherwise I would have lost my spot!  Priorities, I know.

I spent the whole day drawing recreationaly and eating too much and therefore spending too much.  I was out with urban sketching friends and it was so lovely to spend the whole day with them.  There are some developments with the urban sketching and it involves me so more news on that later when it comes to fruition. I  need to be good (as much as possible) this week to make up for the spending though!  After all, my contract for animating Psychobutts ends shortly and I'll be in freelance limbo or madness, whichever one, again.  I do enjoy this whole going from place to place and drawing though!  However, once the job ends, perhaps bringing packed lunches or breakfasts would be ideal.

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…
