Shopkins World Vacation

Shopkins World Vacation Movie

Hi!  This trailer has been up for some time now but I haven't had a chance to write about it.  This was the project I was working on earlier this year, I was part of the production team as an animator and designer in this production. The screen cap is one of the shots I animated.  A lot of fun.  Please click on the picture or this LINK for the full trailer.  Shopkins is a Moose Toy product and this film was animated at Studio Moshi.   It was a lot of fun to work on but like all productions, had its trials.  It was a very good team to work with and I made more new friends and that is always a good thing. If there is something that I can claim is all mine, it would be all the shading and highlights on the hair and accessories of the Shoppies (human girl characters).

I am currently at Studio Moshi working on another project.  Not too sure if am allowed to say much about it just yet but it's another animated film and I might possibly be moved on to a TV series at some point...we shall see.  I am currently doing character turn-arounds and design and color.

I am also up to Number 013 on my Mecha Hummingbirds.  I feel like it is going super slowly.  I need to start posting those up here too.

Other news...I have parties to prepare for and catch up dinners to attend and freelance work to finish. We also just finished concreting a part of the backyard for a BBQ area.  This month has been very busy on all fronts.  I have recently caught the book bug again and have been buying a lot of books (all within reason and my budget of course) but now I am running out of book space and am current re-organizing it so I can fit in my new acquisitions.  I wonder if I should do book reviews....

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…
