Goal Achieved! Level Up!


This is how you watch a cartoon.
This weekend was special for the peeps at Melbourne based Studio Moshi and personally for me it was pretty important too. Eight years ago I finished my degree at uni, where I studied traditional animation. I left with a goal to one day work on an animation series and if I was lucky enough  I'd get to see my name in the credits. 

On Saturday it finally happened, my name in the credits on TV as a designer for the Australian/Canadian animated series: The Day My Butt Went Psycho.

Well done to Andrew Davies who has worked hard for the last two years to get this project up and running here in Australia. I remember working on it two years ago for like a day, when the character design was first being developed and I had a go at a background concept...so now its fantastic to be working on the actual series.

I have finally achieved my original goal, congratulations Moshi crew.
LEVEL UP!

Attention Potential Clients: Things To Avoid When Hiring An Illustrator.

I love working for free...in opposite world!
I don't usually post these things on my blog, but if you want a healthy relationship with an illustrator or even get one to work for you in the first place, you will avoid these things which are VERY common annoying.

Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries.

A few months ago I did some work on the second season of Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries. I was a hostess...a gentleman's hostess, if you know what I mean. I have to wait till i can record the actual clips, so for now this will have to do...click the photos for a larger image.
Here I am protesting against the police. I'm yelling, "dirty cops!" and giving it a bit of the arm in the air, waving my purse around in anger.
And here I am doing my best suspicious glaring. I knew on the day that their continuity would be a bit stuffed up, cos here I am on BOTH sides of the room in the one scene. Oh well, more of me for everyone!
Just me having a chit chat with a client, escaping out of the room for some "business" and then casual walking through shot, showing up in the local paper and then trying to organise some more "business" with another client.
