Strawberry Frog


I drew this a month or two ago,  I am still drawing, despite not posting on my blog regularly.  I don't think a lot of people read my posts nowadays, with facebook and instagram around, it really is a bit more difficult to post longer posts.  My dad still reads this though (hi dad!) and if you're reading this and you're not my dad, welcome friend!

The frog above, will eventually go up on my redbubble shop...along with quite a few other pieces.

Currently, am the team lead of 11 animators for an animated TV series. When it's released, I will talk more about it. It has been a very busy last few months.  I find the job rewarding but really stressful.  My life the last few months has been checking 100s upon 100's of shots, occasionally animating a shot or two, fixing, chasing props, making decisions, scheduling, conference calls, meetings...there really is so little animation involved, the higher you go.  I am enjoying it though, I adore my team, I think the world of my producers, the animation and assistant animation director and the boss.  No seriously, the boss is great, though sometimes the decisions made, drives me a little crazy.  Like anything though, I don't get along with everyone, mostly because we all have different view points or ideas on how to do things at work.

What's been happening that isn't work?  Well, I stay over a friend's place last Friday night, enjoyed work drinks and did shopping on Friday.  I am also currently collecting the Coles Toys when we do shopping!  I enjoy them and I think they're cute!  I really want a nutella and a milo and I still don't have one.  I do have a lot of other figures though!


I got 15 so far and a few doubles.  I just think they're super cute.

What am I doing this week....I've got a due date tomorrow and Friday for this week.  Am sure there's another one that will pop up this week.  Our line producer, who is awesome is also leaving for a few weeks from tomorrow and I am a bit freaked out by it.  She's great...it will be a little harder until she comes back.

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!

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…

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…
