Shopkins Wild Screening

Well...this event happened on March 01.  I've been really busy this month and have unfortunately neglected my blog.  My aim for the month of April is to do regular blog posts again.

The Shopkins Wild screening was a good night.  We left work early-ish to get to Chadstone.  Not the most convenient location, given that the studio is in Richmond, but it was fun to get there nonetheless. The folks from the studio and Moose met at the foyer where people posed in front of the screens where the trailer was playing, before entering the theater. Popcorn and drinks were provided and little toys!  The ratio that screened was unfortunately the wrong one, the characters at the bottom were cut off.  Luckily though, because of this premiere, it will be correct for paying customers.

Shopkins was a very intense but enjoyable project and it was good to see the results on the big screen.

Studio Moshi is now currently working on Space Chickens.  A joint production for Disney.  It's a TV series this time, so unlike Shopkins, this is a marathon and not a sprint.  I am enjoying my role as Animation team lead, but it is super busy!  Enjoying every bit of time off I can!

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.
