Daily Sketch: Mr. Jailman


This is a piggy bank that my dad got me when he returned from a business trip in Japan when I was 9.  I loved this present and still do as it's been with me for 25 years.  The enamel on the moustache is a bit chipped and the original lock to the cage (he's actually in a cage) has gotten lost but otherwise, he's in good condition, considering how old he is and how he's had to move houses several times and countries.  I love piggy banks though.  I have about 9 in the house...and one is at Squishface since we needed a piggy bank there.  Sometimes I think I might have OCD as I have a coin bank for the different coins.  Like $1 only in one piggy bank (like Mr. Jailman only keeps 1 dollars).  Anyway, I find it fun and it's good to keep money in the house, even if it's just small change.

Another really big day today.  I'm tired cos I've slowed down a bit.  Really big job with a fast turn-around is tiring.  Doing my best though.  I have to pull out some big shots tomorrow.  I've been chained to the computer at home so much that am starting to get cabin fever.  I literally go to the gym in the mornings and then back again and working till late ( like I'm finishing off a shot after this blog post) I still haven't had any breaks longer than a day...maybe the longest I've had is a weekend or two, but for the most part it's all go, go, go on my end.  I will be socializing a lot come Friday to Sunday though.  Tons of events!  That said...I'll probably be working on Sunday night.

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…

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…
