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…

Space Chickens in Space Trailer

Hi, hi!  A trailer for the projects I've been working on all year at Studio Moshi, as an Animation Team Lead, has been released!  Here it is in all it's glory.  It's pretty fun and manic and colourful, with funny stories and appealing characters. All the good things that I enjoy when working on a project. 

It's always interesting when working with people from different countries and time zones, getting assets and feedback but it works.

We have 4 months left on this project.  Where did the time go?  It feels like it just zipped by.  I am looking forward to a break.  I think...this time around I will focus on getting my website done and working out all my social media accounts and perhaps a few new pieces as well.

Been doing budgets too.  I think I may have been eating out way too much and shopping, but hey...can't take money with you when you die!  That said, I think I will endeavour to be a bit more frugal in the next production.
