A Short Verse

'Tis indeed a long day's dying
But not for a lack of trying
Ever louder I'll sing
With a busted wing
And feign that I am flying.

I saw a wounded seagull on my lunchtime walk, and was thinking about Milton (oooh yeah, I'm a wild man) and this kinda popped into my head.

What I wuz doin' for the last year.

For the last year or so I've been working on a show called "SuperNormal", which is a television series Fatkat was animating for World Leaders Entertainment. It was quite a year; I started the show as a lead in Assembly, and by the time all was said and done, I was Director of Animation for entire episodes. Madness. Anyway, the show is now airing in the UK on CITV. I'm not sure if it will ever make it over here, but someone (not me) posted an entire episode on YouTube, called "Mr Bad Waits For No Man." I was a supervising animator on this one and theres some of my animation in it at the beginning and scattered around the episode.

Watch it if ya got time, its about 10 minutes or so.

Sorry, quality is kinda cruddy, but like i sez, I didn't post it.

Elf Dame at Lunch

So yeah, drew a fantasy kinda pin - uppy thing at lunch a little while ago, this is the cleanup version. Who the heck is she? Is she a slave? Warrior? What's she sitting on? Who knows? I don't usually draw fantasy pinups, so could be anything. The drawing has it's flaws, but I like that she looks mildly pissed at being in such a ridiculous outfit.

So, yeah, busy lately, so hard to find the time to post blah blah blah. All the usual excuses.

Started a new project here at work, having our "ramp up" time, trying to work the bugs out of the processes, get people up to speed on the nature of the the show, etc. After a year of working on a symbol based show I'm trying to learn how to draw again , which is fun and educational and maddening. Not complaining, mind you, it's wonderful to be doing it, and I'm very happy to be working on the project. Just making me a bit TENSE, which of course means the drawing suck, which makes me more tense.

But whatever, If you're here at all, it's to look at a picture, so thar she be. It's kind of a detail of a work in progress, with some hastily applied colour, done in Flash.
