"The Flow" and life update

Hi!  It's been a while again...sometimes I just don't feel like being on the computer after working, I guess.  Things have been busy...I know I sound like a broken record and I've been busy since I've been blogging, but it's true.  I have mentioned that I am currently the team lead. I have a team of about 14 people and last Wednesday was my first episodic delivery.  My goodness, that was hectic. Many more to come though, least till the end of the year.

What did I learn on my first delivery?  Well, I can't animate and check and strategize on finishing an episode all at the same time and it does take some amount of strategy and time management.  I am a little distressed not being able to animate as much or at all at this rate.  However, animating is not my main job as an animation team lead it would seem.  I need to keep on top of checking footage and doing fix-ups, when I can, and tracking missing in different animators scenes.

The illustration above is on my Redbubble shop and I tend to buy and model a lot of my designs.  Yup, gotta buy my own products....since I technically don't reproduce my own stuff.

I got into drawing faces again.  I love drawing faces, it's my go to.  It's not very popular when I post it on social media though and it makes me wonder how I can make it more appealing.

This week will be busy again, need to work hard to stay on track!

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!

IF: Burning

Howdy! This is my illustration for Illustration Friday and the theme is Burning.  I wanted to do something simple with bold colours and I went for "burning passion" and why not?  I think it's the type of burning most people wont mind at all.  This was illustrated in Flash. I bought two awesome fashion books today: Dreaming of Chanel and Dreaming of Dior.  I would definitely recommend them!

IF: Remedy

"Little Benny is off to remedy a pest problem" Howdy, When the theme "Remedy" for Illustration Friday came about, this came to my head.  I suppose I always had a thorough and maybe a tad bit on the overkill side when it comes to remedying certain problems.  I got bitten by bedbugs while I was in an Austrian hostel and this is exactly what I wanted to do...eradicate the nasty little creatures from the face of the planet.  This is hand drawn and then scanned into Photoshop for colouring. I went hiking again today. Went hiking in the rain and mud in the Dandeong ranges and treated myself to scones afterwards.  Not a bad day at all.  Keeping active and having a balance between work and staying at home all the time and just trekking outdoors really helps me focus on what I need to do.
