"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!

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…

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…
