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!

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.  …
