here is some stuff I doodled.
today was my birthday! it went pretty well, I did a few things I like doing and overall it was pretty quiet. I'll get some more presents when I fly home on sunday, yay!
I might do a drawing or two over the weekend since I am going to be leaving my tablet behind, so I may post a few times over the next few weeks. however, I'll be taking my official break on this blog after tonight!
hopefully I can come up with a few plans over christmas for how I'd like to proceed.
merry christmas, everybody! I care about and appreciate you all and I hope you have a safe and happy holiday with loved ones, whoever they may be. :)


so when I was a kid we'd climb up on the netting in the soccer net at the park. there was a guy who sometimes yelled at us to get down and not do that, but we went back up there when he left.
it was FUN. man was it fun.

A memory I have from when I was young. I thought her hair was beautiful.

Tuesday, December 15, 2009


oh wow, tuesday already? hum.

Monday, December 14, 2009


I had a ladybug incident today.
so sorry....

Saturday, December 12, 2009


exam tomorrow. gonna fill out those "bubble" sheets like they made us do from time to time in highschool. woo.
watts and power watts and power watts and power, golf, tango, oscar. charlie! PNP! BNC connector, Cathode-Grid-Anode/Plate. Section 6. 300 million. pico nano kilo mega farad henry AF amp.
bwaaaa. I'll probably update tomorrow on whether I pass or fail.

EDIT: I passed!!! hurrah! I did better than the minimum 70%, I got 80 which means I've got a few more privileges than normal. mostly just being able to use higher frequencies. I should totally celebrate with a cake. mm.

I'm gonna venture a guess and say that nobody decided to try out Tegaki E based on my last post. ah well, it's not for everyone. while I'm working on my laptop which has linux on it, I find it easier to use the browser based flash app than actually trying to figure out The Gimp. I guess I'm lazy or something. :(
anyway, I am studying for my HAM license exam that's on saturday morning! wish me luck!

Wednesday, December 9, 2009

I drew this using a website called Tegaki E. it's like a forum but each thread begins with a drawing and all replies are also in the form of drawings. I think it's a neat thing. I mean, the site is filled with teenagers, but whatever. I still think it is fun. the drawing tools are kind of challenging though.

Tuesday, December 8, 2009


hey guys, it's tuesday.
(um. I guess I was cold.)

Monday, December 7, 2009


200 posts, hooray! only a couple more weeks of this and then I'll be taking a break. thanks for payin attention to little ole me, you guys. :) it really does make a difference to have people looking at the stuff I make besides myself.

Saturday, December 5, 2009


I don't really like how this turned out. I'm kind of looking forward to changing the blog so I don't have to post things I'm really not that crazy about.
hey, anyone going to be in the Corner Brook area at Christmas/New Years eve...? just wonderin'.

Thursday, December 3, 2009


I wish I had started drawing earlier in the night. this is just a memory of Amsterdam I have. I really liked the way they built their houses and rode bikes so much and had a bunch of boat houses and it was all pretty relaxing.
not pictured: all of us getting frustrated on a pedalboat.
also, I pretty much approximated everything here... so it's not very accurate. like I said, I wish I had started earlier so I could have gone by some reference photos and put in more detail! ah well. such is life.

Wednesday, December 2, 2009


what do you mean that's not what spacemen do? EVERYONE knows you do funky space ballet in "Zero G" when you go to space. duh.
monday will be my 200th post. wooooo.

Tuesday, December 1, 2009


hey who remembers the stairs in the hostel/inn in Amsterdam? like holy moley. we have it easy here in the Americas. I swear we climbed up there like 200 times during our stay.

Monday, November 30, 2009


some days I get so frustrated with myself because I am just totally useless. arrrrggg.
anyway this is a face. :/I wanted to draw how the mouth and eyes and nose all curve around the front of the face and it's not flat, because that's important sometimes.

Saturday, November 28, 2009


I feel detached. can't connect.

Thursday, November 26, 2009


what? over there? dang guys I still don't see it. you're just pulling my leg.

Wednesday, November 25, 2009


mario! mario.
(I was not feeling so hot earlier (actually I was, I think I had a fever) so I took it easy. Kenneth got that new mario game for the Wii today. please accept this sub-par drawing of two marios.)
Italians, man.

Tuesday, November 24, 2009


went out to sports bar for wings and drinks
didnt sleep much last night
so so tired

Monday, November 23, 2009


featuring: Miss Ima Hogg, an army general, a railroad worker, and a soldier in gear. all from photos from the blog, which is full of really great old photos, mostly from America. I just wanted to try a few unusual faces and lines, because I'm tired of drawing myself all the time.
also: that railroad guy is wearing a suit and tie. INSIDE his work uniform. people used to be so much classier. back in the day.

during weeks like these I wonder if I'm actually just going backwards. I don't know. I'm probably just frustrated because I'm not real inspired or happy with what I'm whipping off in these daily drawings, but it just seems like the more I do the less impressive they get. I might need some kind of change. maybe with the pace or the objective or something else.
I've also had a lot less time in the last couple of weeks and a lot on my mind in the last 12 months, so maybe I'm being too hard on myself. hmmmmmm.

Wednesday, November 18, 2009


no real significance to this, it's just late and I'd like to get to bed.

Tuesday, November 17, 2009


not really sure why but I'm just so grumpy lately. could be a lot of things I guess.

I drew two things for you today. I felt guilty that the first one was so grumpy. I guess I'm just having trouble relaxing. looks like next week I'll only have two shifts at work, so I'll have time to practice relaxing. guuuuhhhh. anyway. have a good weekend, gaiz.

Thursday, November 12, 2009


... go on, git.
(just practice doodling. that foot ain't quite right.)

Wednesday, November 11, 2009



I finished the fourth Ace Attorney game today. if you've played any of them before you should recognize a few of these faces. I got a bit carried away. if you haven't, I guess it doesn't matter.
remembrance day tomorrow. don't forget, dudes.

Monday, November 9, 2009


I'm being trained in for evening shifts, so I didn't begin this one till late and I'm not really in the drawing zone. so here's a lady who's eating bugs. enjoy?
maybe tomorrow I will have the forsight to draw my daily drawing during the daytime and not wait till after my shift.
anybody doing anything special this week for Remembrance Day? I might go take out a book at the library or something. I've got wednesday off, so it'd be nice to spend an hour or two thinking about those who have allowed Canada to be the great country it is.

Friday, November 6, 2009


meh. this guy doesn't look as tough as I was hoping he would. I'm not that good yet I guess. better keep practicing! I need to do more sketching from life/real people/stuff.
bleh. I'm thinking about a rant, but that's for another day I think.
goodnight guys. hope you're taking care of yourselves.

Thursday, November 5, 2009


I locked myself out of the apartment for a bit today. haha, silly me.

Wednesday, November 4, 2009


I havent been thinking much about artmaking the last couple of weeks. I think it's mostly from trying to adjust to working again. it'll come back, I think. doing daily drawings helps. the shame of putting so little effort into a drawing one day pushes me to do a better one the following day. or the shame of several days built up. ahem. my art peeps may or may not know what I'm talking about.
anyway this girl is getting abducted. she's pretty surprised! please click on the image to see it big. I'd have saved it even bigger if it wasn't such a big file.

aaaah, I love costumes! yeah! there were so many cool ones. Bob from Reboot, a girl as a Darlek, a bunch of star trek crew, some Dharma initiative zombies (I think? I am not totally familiar with the show). my friend andrew was iron man the alcoholic. kenneth was a pirate of the itnernet. oh it was good times. I was pretty smiley.
I wonder if we will get kids in costume tomorrow night at our apartment!

not quite recovered yet.

Tuesday, right?

I think it's tuesday. probably it is. I'm adjusting to work slowly. looks like the majority of my shifts will be right early in the morning, but that's alright.
Gif animations! I wanted to draw someone talking on the phone. these are two characters from the Ace Attorney video games (agaaaain). I drew the guy first and then the girl (mostly because I wanted to have him talking to someone). she got rushed a bit. or else I'd integrate that "lookin to the right" face a bit more with the rest.
seems like when you're working on something frame by frame like that, it always seems like you've done all this work and then when you go to put it together there's barely anything there! maaaaan. feels like you're missing half of what you've drawn.
that's just the nature of the beast, I guess.

Monday, October 26, 2009


oh it's monday agaaaain.
I worked today. made my feet hurt from standing. shifts this week are all real early in the day. this will take some adjusting.

Friday, October 23, 2009


So I was trying a few things on another drawing and I hated it so I drew this? and then I discovered that I was in the mood for colouring. so whatever. I also forgot to read some stuff for tomorrow. cause I'm doin' a thing.
ALSO there's some kind of "Zine Fair" goin' on in Halifax tomorrow. I will perhaps go to this and drool over things I can't really afford to buy. baaaaawwwwww.
tell me guys, what are you up to? surely someone is having a more successful evening than me?

Thursday, October 22, 2009


So I drew one frame and tried to trace the other two. it's pretty crazy how hard it is to make the same drawing more than once. also I am super cold right now.
I can't remember if I mentioned on the blog yet, but I got a job. my first real shift starts on monday. pretty cool, eh? I was getting really low in funds there for a while. yikes.
There's an animation event happening this weekend. anybody round these parts (Halifax!) should check it out. :) I am going to the one on monday! also maybe the other one.

and lastly, the H1N1 flu shots are going to be approved soon. I think most of us will have access to them in the first few days of November. I'm calling my doc tomorrow to get me a tentative appointment. please consider doing the same, you guys. I care about youuuuuu.
I think that's all for tonight. toodles!

Wednesday, October 21, 2009


I get real nostalgic for Final Fantasy 8. I was playing it a lot and really fell in love with the characters right around when I was 13-14, just as I was moving across the province and graduating to highschool and all that. maybe I'll tell y'all more about it sometime.
feel free to show me some chocobo love down in the comments. or maybe a video game or song from a game that you find especially nostalgic? for me it's definitely this particular song.

Tuesday, October 20, 2009


no animation tonight,
I was busy watching that old Carl Sagan series about the universe and it's so gosh darn cool oh man. the UNIVERSE, guys!
the universe.

Monday, October 19, 2009


I can see things I need to work on. this is kind of exciting to be doing! but photoshop is not an ideal program for animating. either that or I'm just a huge noob who does not know how best to use that program to do this?
aaaaaaanyway. hi.

Saturday, October 17, 2009


took me a while. looks a little stiff. probably should have taken me longer, since I should have drawn each panel seperately!
This girl is named Ema Skye and she is a character in the "Ace Attorney" video game series. when she's in a bad mood she snacks on those little things.

Friday, October 16, 2009


feelin' cranky.
here's a tree.
