Hi!  It's been a while since I last wrote, can't say anything exciting has happened since I last posted.  Finished the last project at the studio but still waiting until it is released to say anything about it.  I am also starting another TV series job on Monday, though again, I'll be leaving the name out until I get permission from the studio to talk about it.  Not that I can say much until it's released, yet again.  I also finished another e-book job recently and still have another one to go.  I will need to start the designs either tomorrow or tonight.  In fact, this week has been a bit of catch up week on freelance for me since I've taken the week off from my current studio and will hopefully be recharged enough to last till my next break which will be in December, during the Christmas period.  At least it will be a longer one!

Hehehe. sorry to be so vague about what I've been doing, that's the problem with working on projects that are not my own.

I've been thinking about a new illustration project and am thinking a coloring book on top of my own finished illustrations.  It might be a bit too ambitious given that am working on jobs for the majority of the day and sometimes on the weekend..but will see.  I have some ideas that I really want to embark on and have a new illustration portfolio to show off by mid-next year.  Will see!

The drawings above are from my sketchbook and are all stuffed animals I drew at the Museum.  I would love to go back.  It was my favourite spot when I went.

I have been relaxing by reading manga lately.  It's nice to switch off from time to time...though perhaps I've been switching off too much instead of being productive?  A possibility.

I also mentioned in my last entry that I was given succulents...well here they are planted!


Rob and I also went to Philip Island last week and saw the penguins, the week before we went out to dinner with my family and this weekend...am not sure to be honest! We'll probably have to dig up the backyard since we need to sort out some stuff there.

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.  …
