Inktober 2017: Betty Blueberry and life and stuff


Wow...it's been a while since I last wrote.  Close to a month!  I have been doing Inktober this month but I am not very far behind and have run out of imagination, it would seem.  I was attempting to do a theme of "fruity witches" and hiding a bunny in the picture.  Can you spot it?  I may have to call it quits though, am exhausted!

I haven't started my first week as an Animation Supervisor in a current studio job,  and though I am enjoying it, I do find it challenging.  There is a lot to think of and keep track and the real work hasn't really started yet, in my opinion, this is just a warm up.  I am sadly finding that I can't seem to do much drawing when I get home.  The increased workload, on top of the travel time, is making it a tad difficult for me to remain productive at the end and am also answering any emails that came about while I was traveling to go home since I leave before every one else does.   

What else has been happening...I've been buying too much books...but I love books.  My wish list on book depository is very long.  I keep ordering though.  I am still after James Jean: "Rift" and am spewing that this book I saw years ago, "Art of Yuko Shimizu", was about $60 and money for me was tighter then and now that I've tried to find and buy the book it's now $200 or more.  Insanity! Oh well, luckily, there are plenty more art books that I like and enjoy browsing though as much as I like collecting it.  

The family has had a few birthdays and I've gone to friends exhibitions and I've had a few social gatherings during Friday pub lunch at work and after hours. I still have a life!  I've dropped freelancing after hours for a few weeks now and it's probably not wise for me to pick up anything else while am in a supervisor position...the project will end after all and my role will switch again, depending on the project.  Busy periods in general always end, so am just trying to squirrel away but also enjoy the abundance of work while it is there!

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…
