Saibu no Akuma Exhibition: Blurring the lines of Bespoke


























Hi!  So first of all, everyone needs to support Saibu no Akuma  and to check out their website and philosophy.  They are shirt tailors located in Melbourne and they do really cool stuff.  I met the guys from Saibu no Akuma when I was doing some urban sketching on my own at Fitzroy  last year.  You should check out their blog! Some cool stuff in it, including me!  Anyway, they had their Kickstarter campaign and exhibition yesterday and I was doing live drawing there and here are the results!  I have never done this sort of thing before and it was very tiring and a lot of fun.  The whole concept was to draw people while they weren't looking but before long, people started requesting for drawings and suddenly there was a queue.  I was very lucky to have Rob there to tell me to take breaks and make sure I was still drinking since I because really flat out.  He even helped with one of the pieces when I was getting quite tired in the end (Tony, the guy in blue and his girl friend in black).  I didn't have enough colours to match everyones skin tone which was frustrating and I didn't have naxy blue so alas, not the most accurate today.  I need more skin tones...bah! 

It was great fun, everyone seemed to enjoy it and it was a good experience for me.  I probably should draw more people when am urbansketching for practice.  Am still doing more drawings for them on the side but this time, i get to draw from photos and not at a manic pace..so let's see the difference, shall we?

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&…

Space Chickens in Space Trailer

Hi, hi!  A trailer for the projects I've been working on all year at Studio Moshi, as an Animation Team Lead, has been released!  Here it is in all it's glory.  It's pretty fun and manic and colourful, with funny stories and appealing characters. All the good things that I enjoy when working on a project.

It's always interesting when working with people from different countries and time zones, getting assets and feedback but it works.

We have 4 months left on this project.  Where did the time go?  It feels like it just zipped by.  I am looking forward to a break.  I think...this time around I will focus on getting my website done and working out all my social media accounts and perhaps a few new pieces as well.

Been doing budgets too.  I think I may have been eating out way too much and shopping, but hey...can't take money with you when you die!  That said, I think I will endeavor to be a bit more frugal in the next production.

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…
