Inktober Day 25: Corgi


Hi!  How goes it?  Been a couple of days since my last post.  I've been busy! The whole weekend since Friday has been busy!  I am now working full-time at a studio and it's going well thus far.  I like the people and I am enjoying the work.  The hours are flying by!  

On a side note, a corgi is a dog I really want cos I think it's super cute!

I did have some trouble with my part-time job though...very annoying.  I've worked with them since 2005 and they changed their system this year and things have been a bit difficult to say the least.  On Friday, I discovered that they sent my contract to a work email I never use, for the first time, in 11 years.  Why would they do that without warning?  It's not the fault of the people I actually work with, they are lovely...that said, the new person handling the paperwork, in my opinion, is....not as lovely.  Hopefully, on the day am working from home, I will be able to sort this out.  If not...then it would be a bit of a shame.  A real shame.  Fingers crossed that it all turns out well in the end.

Anyhoo, on a happier note, we ended up seeing some friends for dinner on Friday night and had a great catch up. Saturday morning, we watched an animation that I worked on.  It should be released at Christmas but you never know!


Today was busy again because some friends of ours came to our home in the country for a BBQ.  It was lovely.  Between all of the social events, drawings were getting done, I had quite a few work emails to answers, sorting out a possible exhibition in December...busy, busy,busy!  Just how I like it.

I am currently debating whether or not to draw another chocolate bar or to work on some book drafts.  Decisions, decisions...

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.  …
