Game 36 Round 02: "Running"


Hi!  This is game 36 on Kookyrabbit!  Astri drew a peacock and I decided on a goat.  Our 1 year anniversary of playing this game is coming up soon.  We're doing a marathon drawing night at her place on July 09.  Should be great fun. 

Busy week thus far, am almost done with this second book.  I should submit everything before lunch time tomorrow and then I have studio work on Friday working on an animation gig, staying the night at my friend's place in the city since I have urban sketching first thing Saturday morning and then Rob will come and join me in the city in the afternoon/ early evening.  I am hoping to finish all work by lunch time so that I can finish off another illustration for redbubble and I also have to do some social media stuff for Kookyrabbit. 

I've gotten plenty of jobs based on original illustrations I did for fun (the current toddler books I'm working on is a good example of that).  It's been good having clients screen cap a drawing, send it back to me and say "we want this".  Pretty awesome. 

I've also been selling work on my shop and am getting a kick out of it!  Redbubble even tells me the location of where people have bought my stuff.  The big spenders all seem to be in Europe. Pretty cool!  I haven't made enough money out of it to live on since I only get a small cut but it can certainly buy me a few lunches and pay a bill!  Anyway, that's the fun thing about this being a hobby.  I am not pressured about it making money or not!  In the long run though, I would prefer to just sell my own work and have it pay all the bills...would be nice!  Though I would probably miss hopping from project to project as I find that fun 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!

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…
