Outfit of the Day 003-004




Hi!  Drawing outfits daily is a fun little project.  I wonder how many I can draw?  The most I've ever drawn for one theme consistently where my fish bones and urban sketching.  I tend to revisit themes and genres but I tend to get bored after a while and it would be nice to really stick to something for a change, consistently...least make a 100!  Meh, will see.  Right now this is fun and I don't really want to put too much pressure on myself.  I haven't even made 20 yet, after all.

I was having a tough week at work with all the submissions, so it's nice to unwind by seeing and enjoying the company of friends during and after work.  Doing outfit of the day photos, is a lovely break to the day!

I've been having a hard time unwinding nowadays, work and projects is normally on my mind but even more so nowadays, since I'm now responsible for a team. I think that's why I preferred to just animate and not have much responsibility but this has been a very good experience and I am learning a lot of new skills that I would not have if I just stayed as an animator.  I had the choice to just stay home and do footage or lead and I chose to lead.  I guess I wanted to grow as a professional and as a person.  Studio Moshi is great that I work with a lot of people I consider friends outside of work and to be someone that mentors the next generation of animators!

Drawing Request 08: A rancid baby teething on the enterprise while a stray shrink ray lies on the porch of the redneck family.

Day 34 and I've finally done another one of the drawing requests.  Only 2 more to go! This one is for my friend Peter Douglas, he requested this on facebook a while back, his request: A rancid baby teething on the enterprise while a stray shrink ray lies on the porch of the redneck family.  This was done with fineliners and brought into photoshop.

I am worried about what's going to happen after the pilot gig.  It's been really slow this year and with financial crisis looming...who knows what's going to happen.  I've never done any other sort of work that wasn't creative...with the exception of that one summer job I had working at a chocolate factory and admittedly that was fun.  Oh the chocolates...so many chocolates...ending up in my pocket (it was all perfectly legal, they encouraged workers to eat chocolates thinking that will make us all sick of it....obviously they didn't know that I could live solely on chocolates).   Anyway, I can't complain, I&…

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…

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