Interview by Jennifer Choat for the North and West Melbourne News



Hi!  So a couple of weeks ago I got interviewed for this paper by Jennifer Choat.  She found me on one of the websites I was affiliated with, though she wasn't quite sure how she got there, but hey, lucky right?  Anyway, it was a one hour interview and Jennifer was very nice and professional. 

It's nice to have a blog to put up all stuff and be a digital scrapbook.  Though every post I randomly read from the past just has me saying am busy.  I've been busy for a very long time...which is great!  can't believe that it will be my 11th year in the animation industry next year.  Scary stuff, huh?

For other news, I started at a new studio today and working on a project that am not quite sure am allowed to talk about just yet. More news when am allowed to tell them!  However, on top of that job, a company that I have been doing a job for every Christmas, since 2012, has contacted me to do another video for their conference which I need to work on over Christmas and it looks like the whole of January has been booked too.  I have two clients who are "Maybe" at the moment trying to book that month.  I am not particularly worried since I have another 4 e-books to illustrate.  Madness all around I tell you!  Madness!!!

Anyway, am still working on that freelance gig I've been working on since last week and I need to get a big chunk of it done tonight!

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.  …
