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....

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 endeavor to be a bit more frugal in the next production.

Some journal entries!

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…
