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.

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…

Hallo!  Ah....another month has passed and it's taken me a very long time to write.  I don't know what it is but I am struggling to keep this blog up to date at the moment.  Things have been super busy ever since I took the Animation Supervisor role in my current contract.  I find that I don't particularly enjoy turning on the computer after work and would prefer to just read comics to relax.

How am I finding it?  Different.  I miss just being responsible for myself and it's tiring keeping track of a lot of things and people at work.  I feel like I took my lead/senior animator role for granted.  I had to work this Saturday gone past too and though I feel pleased that we managed to resolve an issue that came up, am still feeling some trepidation on what may come up next.  It feels like am solving one problem after another.  Not without raging about it and my expletives have gotten even more colorful since starting the gig.

I have been spending way too much money too.  …
