Managed to finish the painting before the sorbet melted!

Hallo, hallo!  A very, very busy but good day today.  Gym in the morning at 7am, then I went and had a big brekky and worked on my second book and answered emails and discussed fix-ups with the client for the first book (so easy to do business with smart phones).  Afterwards, I met up with my friend Evelyn (instagram: @evelyn.yee) and we first sketched on a lawn near the Eureka Tower.  Well, she sketched bikes while I did more work and while we were there we got accosted by an adorable corgi.  I want a corgi now!  Anyway, we ventured off to the Belgian Beer Cafe (they make awesome Bloody Marys) and then we drew the GAYIP sculpture on the Southbank Promenade but it got too hot so we finished the colouring at Crown Casino food court.  I had to dry my piece at the ladies toilet using the hand dryer.  Then we finally chilled out at Hophaus where I painted a nice flourless orange cake with orange sorbet.  My last piece had no pencils and just straight watercolors.

It was a very good day today.  Tomorrow is a day of work though.  Need to get huge chunks of stuff done.  Finish off the first book and make more headway on the second book.

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.  …
