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!
