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.

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…
