Happy 2016!



Hallo!  Behold, my last drawing for 2015!  I drew it up yesterday with the mepxy markers.  Traditional drawings are fun to do.

My New Year involved myself and Rob having a quite one at his place.  The power went out about 8:00pm and I was in the middle of drawing a digital New Year piece too.  I lost a good chunk of the work but was able to save it today. Rob and I played Boggle via candlelight, chatted, looked at the stars and when the power came back on we had food and drinks and watched the fireworks on TV.  It was a very nice and low key New Years and I enjoyed it...I think Rob enjoyed it too.   2016 is definitely a year of new beginnings.

Today, I mostly worked and finished/re-did the drawing I started yesterday, today.



This is my first fully digital piece.  I don't remember if I ever drew something fully digital .   It certainly something I want to improve this year...drawing digitally.  I am currently drawing up in Photoshop and I think a good goal would be to learn Adobe Illustrator, maybe After FX and get back into the habit of doing daily drawings and uploading daily on my blog and all other social media platforms.  I used to do it all the time and it would be good to do it this year.   I guess, this year, I really want to focus on artistic goals and get better in drawing my own characters and designs.

Hope everyone, especially my loved ones and friends, have an awesome 2016!  I hope 2016 will be great for me too!

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!

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…

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…
