Home For a Rest

Well folks I'm safely back in Mississauga and ready to recharge! I'm soooo very happy to be with my parents and siblings again, and the house looks as awesome as I remember... 7 foot tree assembled soley by my 10 year old sister, garland on the doorways, flickering flames in the fireplace... And so many snacks! Myeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! ^_______^
So, now to sleep after the long but fun trip. Merry Christmas y'all!

Merry holidays, y'all!

Well, Christmas fast approaches and I am sooo excited to go home on friday. Though it doesn't feel very wintery in the appartment at the moment as I'm boooiling with our huge windows and the sunlight, gosh, if our heating was actually working me n' andrea would fry in here! This'll be my last posting for the year, I'm going to give Mike @Pip my computer over the break and he's going to reformat so hopefully all my computer woes will be fixed. this probably means all the pictures I've posted on blogger will vanish, but I'll try uploading a couple again once I get the computer back.

This pinup is one I promised I'd make my pal Shawn a little while ago. I've finally racked out the watercolours! Woo! But dang, now that I look at it her left leg is stupid... why do I never notice these things before cleanup???

Anyhoo, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year everyone!

Cut! Print! That's a rap!

Done and DONE! I've finished Peter's family characature portrait! WOOOOO! The prints turned out awesome (I love my printer, she's such a sexy, sexy beast) and tommorrow I'll try to trudge through the snowy tundra that is Ottawa to get to the post office so I can mail these suckers a.s.a.p.
Seriously though, you see the size of snow clumps blowing around? I live on the 11th floor and those fluffs are as big as eyeballs!
So I feel a lot less stressed, but in need of a HUGE massage *oh Adriana I'm missing you so dearly right this moment!* And now I've only two more illustrations to try and finish before home time... well three if you count the sexy pinup I promised Shawn... maybe four if you count the ninja-tag I promised Tony ... ehehehe... I'LL GET ON IT! YES! But, LATER! First sleep. Or reading in bed, I'm finally reading the biography/picture book of J.W Waterhouse that I picked up this summer at the Ottawa Art Gallary. I love his work, definetly amongst my top 5 favourite artists!

"Don't quit your day job... or "night job" in my case"

Gosh, I've been a shut in for the past week and a bit! There's so much I need to do for Christmas!
Weird recipe: Also, while making my scrambled eggs and mushrooms this morning I decided to be adventurous and add egg nogg to the mix. At first it was enjoyable, nice sweet smell and eggnoggy aftertaste, but towards the middle it just got nasty so I smothered it in HP sauce as usual. *urp*

Anyhoo, I'm gonna try and clean up and colour the last characature before work. Later, my duckies.

The more things change...

This Shrub Monkey was inspired by a phone call with Steven this evening in which while holding the phone beneath his chin I thought he sounded like a fat man. If you can't click on the link (because blogger seems to get antsy with files bigger than a certain size) check it out on my website through the link provided above. Yeah, I think you hafta click on the entry title. There you go.

Man, I must press REALLY hard when drawing with the tablet because my hand always aches after doing one of these.


This is the first part of a commission for Steven's friend Peter, it's a characature of him and his sister up to some shenanagins. My plan is to have commission #2 completed by thursday so I can ship all the prints out by friday.
P.S> As Mr. Barth's already noted, this pic seems to hold some resemblance to me n' Gerry, though I didn't notice til after I posted... hmm... I think I need to work on my characatures so they don't look so generic, but it DOES look like Peter and his sis! If i HAD done a drawing of me and Gerry he'd have his orange hat and I'd be the one holding a sword and chasing him screaming around the castle laughing maniacally to myself... muahaha!!!!

Today was awesome, lots of fun. Chilled all day with Gerry, we went to Wallaks where I FINALLY picked up a paint pallet for my watercolours I keep promising myself I'm gonna use... someday. Nyeeh. And I went bowling in the evening with Andrea, Justin, Mike, Ray and Tony and it was soooo fun. Though we ended up going all the way to the quebec side for some reason because they "had to have a 10 pin game!!" But it was a lot of fun! I started out strong too, but beginners luk always dies for me after about three throws. *siiigh* The gross thing is I reek of cigarettes from the 3 minutes I spent in the bar pulling out cash. BLAUGH!

On a completely different topic, it's interesting to note that for some reason the "a" "s" "e" and "n" keys on my keyboard are completely gone. Like, what do I keep typing that uses these letters??? "asen"? "esna?" "sane?" ooh, "sane!" hmm... that's kind of creepy....

Here's Andrea and Justin....

The gang trying to figure out how to get names for each player... needless to say my team didn't figure it out...

And Mike says donughts are A-OK!

Jingle Bells!!!!!

Aww how nice! Todays been a nice relaxing day, and now a brass band is playing Christmas Carols across the street infront of the Salvation Army! I feel so peacefull............... to go oblitorate some tiny white pins with a massive bowling ball!!!!!!!

Hey guys, if you haven't checked out Cartoon Brew ( lately, go check out their November 30 posting and click on the "The Return of Hand-Drawn Animation" post with the animated eagles. S'great.
Humminahumminahummina I cannot WAIT until Narnia on Saturday! Squeeee!


I like absent minded doodling, just putting the pen to paper and moving it and see what happens. What I draw is usually influenced by the music I'm listening to on the lil pink ipod, if I'm not listening to music then it's anyone's guess what I'm gonna sketch next... usually the guys in my quad. WHOO! "Sheridanc Quad!..... and Marcel!"


I suppose I'd better finish off all the rest of the illustrations on my to do list. But first I'd beter do the dishes because they're shutting the water off in our building AGAIN tommorrow. Hope I don't cut myself on that carving knife again... the thing has a taste for my bloooood!

A whole jubilee of sketches, and below is my creepy page!

This is Mister Barth and his extremely proper sitting posture. :P


If you read Hans Bacher's blog you'dve probably checked this out already, but if not you HAFTA check out this film he has a link to. It's so beautiful!

Get the cool shoe shine...

WHEW! One holiday project DONE! But I can't post it in case prying little eyes see it before Christmas morning, so you're gonna have to try and imagine I made something wonderful and be content. HA!
I'm glad I went out every chance I could during summer and autumn. If I felt guilty about putting projects aside I reasoned I'd just be a shut in during the winter and make up for it. WELL! It's winter now isn't it!? Thanks a LOT KT-of-the-past for making me a shut in!
Here's a page of flash doodles I did rather than working as I shoud've been.

Chuck Norris loves you.

GRAAH! Christmas is coming and while I'm UBER happy and excited at going home and visiting my loved ones, I'm also ETREEEEMELY stressed as there are maybe 20 days before I leave and I'm still not done with my xmas presents, haven't started my portrait commission yet, am still having net issues and wil probably have to reconfigure my computer, which means starting EVERYTHING from scratch, but I don't want to do that until after I finish all these illustrations I need to do.
*guh!* I also haven't gone to kick boxing in a while, and I have to go find a way to get LUCIA'S DVD back to the Rogers half way across Ottawa! *shakes a loving fist at Lu*
I'm just a wee bit stressed out at the moment, I think I just need to get some sleep and I'll be kokai... "okay"... what the heck did I just type!?!?!
I went to Everett's screening yesterday (friend from work for any non-Pipstars reading this) and I really enjoyed his film, so campy and fun! It was fun being an extra in it too and I got all big headed and giggly everytime I saw myself on the big screen. Ahhh, my first screen role... "clipboard girl!"
I've added on a couple doodles I had laying around my desk at work for when I need a break from the computer screen. At Pip there's all these extra papers lying around for the purpose of doodling (well, whyever not?) and I enjoy using my priveledges.
I think I'm going to sleep now. I've got a whole cabootle of laundry to do tommorrow. GYEAGH!

Them's what I call "ass-kickin' boots"!

Just for you Tony, I did Robin next. So ENOUGH of your wiley ninja tricks! *ducks* Just one more character to go, then I can piece it all together, make a cool abstract BG, and then I'm DONE. Next I'll probably start on the family portrait commissions that Steven's friend asked me to do.

OOOH! Best thing in the world! I keep forgetting my family sent me some left over Halloween treats from Heather's swag! And it's awesome because I always forget I have it just until the point where I muuust have chocolate, then I remember and I have chocolate!

Ahh, life is sweet. But now I'm tired and I wanna get up early-ish tommorrow to go see what the mailman tried to deliver because they ALWAYS SHOW UP WHEN I'M IN THE SHOWER AND CAN'T HEAR THE DOOR! *wheeze wheeze*

"Do you reeeeeeaaaally like it??"

Oooh man, I've been watching the Ren and Stimpy dvds Rod leant me like crazy over the past few days (cuz he's leaving soon and I'd better return them before he does). There's some nutty stuff in there I hadn't seen before (i loooved the cowboy/horse theif one and the Powder Toast man short) along with the classics (my favourites that my dad showed me when I was a kid) like Cousin Sven, Space Madness, the Army One... The Happy Helmet... Good whacky fun. I love the style of John K.'s lady characters, I'd love to see more of that kind of thing too.

Uuuuhm... what else. OSAP starts collecting today. Whoo. Aaaand... tommorrow's pay day! *cheers* I suppose I should get to bed PRONTO because I promised myself I'd go to Kick Boxing tommorrow, and I've been such a lazy bastard this past week.

Nite all!
