Mermay 01-04



Hi!  This daily blog is becoming more of a weekly blog, sorry about that!  Things are just super busy and after a day of animating in a studio, in front of the computer, am really not that keen to get back in front of a screen. I will try to post more regularly though.  However, just because am not blogging daily, doesn't mean am not drawing daily.  I've been participating on Mermay since the start of this month.  I'll be two days behind if I don't draw something today though!  It was a bit busy, I was working on a rather difficult shot today and though I haven't finished it, all the hard bits are done!  Yay!

For some news, my kitty is getting bigger and is still very active and curious,  My parents came to visit and we celebrated an advance Mothers Day dinner and next week is very big for social events.  So many birthdays back to back.  I may also have a packaging design job...more on that if it comes to fruition!  Oh, the computer updated itself and seems to have cleared up all artifact problems with my cintique, woo hoo!

Now, on social media, amongst the 4 mermaids posted here, the Yellow Boxfish (mermaid 03) is the most popular one.

Rob and I are now off to join his family for dinner for a Mothers Day thing!  Then I will need to draw up a mermaid when I come home tonight!

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…
