A new beginning in 2019!

Wow.  Where did 2018 go? It went by so quick.  I had a big year at Studio Moshi as one of the Animation Team Leads for Space Chickens. I had a team between 11-14 for the production where I assigned, checked shots and fixed errors.  It was a great experience and I ended up getting quite attached to my team before long.  There were rough moments but we pulled through as a team and I am very proud of the episodes we produced. 

The two pieces above are a couple of my favorite ones for the year.  I also started drawing my outfits illustrations again and am hoping to create a self-published book using those....I will still show a few sporadically but I need to keep quite a few of them under wraps now!  I just finished drawing number 54 today. 

Myself and Rob have had a rather rough December.  With needing a new car and a death in the family.  It's been a rather expensive and emotional month.  The year in general has been good though.  Great career-wise, Rob and I spent the start of 2018 in Japan, the cat is still fat and has yet to lose weight but he's super cute. 

In 2019, both the cat and I need to lose weight.  Money also needs to be saved, especially since travel and my sister is planning to get married this year.  Need to be a bit more frugal...especially since we just had a big expense with the car. I would also like to draw something every day and blog at least once a week.  More if possible.  I am also in the process of getting a new website done.  I know I've been saying it for ages but I have every intention of getting most of it up and done before starting the new work year next week!

Well, that's all for now!!  I hope you all had a great start to the year!  Do you have any goals you would like to share?  Feel free to write it down in the comments!

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&…

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

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…
