KidLit Vic 2018 and updates






Hi, hi!  It's been a really long time since I last wrote on my blog, I know.  It's been difficult I must admit trying to keep my all my social media accounts updated and because blogging is more of a desktop thing than a phone thing, it has fallen by the wayside a bit.

Anyhoo, last time I wrote anything was before May 19, right before the Kid Lit conference this year.  It was a great event, I met up with a lot of folks I haven't seen for ages and met a lot of lovely illustrators and got some invaluable one on one advice from two publishers.  One of them even gave me her card and said to contact them once I have a proper website.  Food was provided, there were a lot of free seminars to go to in between the paid conferences. It was a very good day.  I went to 2 workshops too and it's great to get some information from that.  I would definitely go again next year.

What's been happening...well, work has been busy as usual but my team is doing exceptionally well this episode, am still going with outfits of the day, I really need to get on with doing my website and updating a few more social media things like Behance and Dribble and do other projects.  In all honesty though, it's a bit of a struggle and I'm just trying to keep one or two things going outside of work.

Mm...what else...have been socializing with quite a few friends, every weekend for the month of July has and is busy and we may have to do some Saturdays soon at the Studio.  Ah well.

And...I've managed to draw 50 outfits.  Yay!  Well, I'll try and write again tomorrow!

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.
