I have started a new job in key animation (posing) at a new studio (DHX Media Vancouver)
And I work for a living. I've been successfully integrated into an employment environment to such a degree as to have manoeuvred successfully from one studio to another without being escorted out by security.
Hell has frozen,
And the world has turned on its head.
So after work today I went voluntarily to a much needed life drawing session. The results? Hilariously disastrous.
I've fallen a long way, bb's. By the end of the first hour I felt like maybe I was getting my groove back, if my groove were a maligned part of my consciousness deeply embedded in the most excruciatingly smelly and simultaneously hollow black put of existence.
Yes, my life drawing skills (if you can call them that) are so deeply embedded in rust that as soon as I got close to hitting the nail on the head both the nail and the hammer exploded into a red cloud of dust,
But since the world has turned on its head, dear internets, I thought it best to keep on scrawling, and inhaled that dust, and absorb its cancerous effects.
So I kept drawing until I remembered I was never any good at this before, so why would I be now? Then I drew some more, giggling like a maniac at my own pathetic plight. I drew until I was driven out into the streets by my ferocious hunger, in search of (what else) some dollar pizza slices or whatever suited my half starved fancy.
I've been thinking, internets.
I don't draw much for you anymore, do I? No, I don't.
I'm sorry about that. I don't draw much for me anymore either. I'm not in a good way.
But at least I'm laughing about being in a very bad way... most of the time. Or crying. I'm not sure which anymore... not ever, not really. I seem to have completely lost my mind,
Or rather exchanged it for some really
Really bad ideas.
Wonderfully bad ideas.
Ideas that are so amazing that you could drop dead from the sheer awesomeness of the whole thing, and most of you probably will, or at the very least many of you will be exposed to the sheer force of awesomeness that is
My most awesome of awesome ideas.
If I'm going to convince myself to stay alive long enough to make this happen, and actually maintain the schedule of crap I'll need to do to pull this all together, I've got a lot of work ahead of me. I'll keep you posted, Internets.
In the meantime, there's a cartoon airing on Teletoon this Thursday evening called "Rocket Monkeys"
And I worked on that. You could watch it! It's terrible. You've been warned.
