Crayon Crunch: October

Helvetica is an a wily, lecherous old lady detective. She refuses to age gracefully, she never refuses a drink or ten, and never takes no for an answer. Loves playing tricks and pulling pranks, hates being bested at anything. Never wears heels shorter than or skirts longer than 4 inches.
My October submission for
… her skirt might be longer than four inches, but it’s tight enough it’ll ride up anyway.

I'm on TV

Not really.
But sorta.

For the past little while i've been working on a show titled Grojband, and just recently it has premiered in Canada on Teletoon.

It originally was playing earlier this year (June) on Cartoon Network and Boomerang, but now it'll be available for my fellow Canadians! Whoo!

As well, ANOTHER show i'm working on named Total Drama Island: All Stars has just premiered in the states (Canadians will have to wait until January 2014).

Keep an eye out for my name in the Animators Credits ;)

Dual Monitor Setup: Can't recall programs (Win8)

I found this was a problem for previous versions of windows, but the fixes for them won't work for Windows 8.
(like right click on the program in toolbar and moving, also cascading didn't work for me either)

SO! In case ANYONE runs into this problem, i'm going to share my fix in hopes it saves some poor soul the frustration.

Problem: A program isn't showing up on either monitors. It's running, you just can't recall it. (WINDOWS 8)

I did this through Catalyst Control Center, but I don't see why it wouldn't just work through Screen Resolution.

1. Rearrange your monitors (in CCC or Screen Res.)
2. Apply
3. Grab it and bring it back to your main display.
4. Switch your monitors back in the correct order.
5. DONE.

That simple.

This guy is a grade-a jerk. 
Complimenting him wins bonus friendship.

A for fun piece, also to see how rusty I am at anatomy.
Pretty rusty :(

On my way to work, I saw a Cardinal and had this idea spring to mind. Bird dragons? I guess so!

Inner Animal

I decided to take three of the main characters from Borderlands, and try to match their personalities to the animals most fitting.
I left out Zer0 intentionally, he has a lot of personality for sure, but since his face is obscured I don't want to try and put a face to a character that doesn't have one.

So much, in Two Weeks

Well, in the past two weeks, I have graduated, looked for jobs, worked a bit, and there is still so much to go. Like actually working in a studio (hopefully), attending my big brothers wedding in Punta Cana (on Sunday!), but the worst time had to be this week.

Unfortunately earlier this week, Mike's mother called and informed us that Winston had passed away. This was very heart breaking as over 6+ years, I have come to love this canine companion like a family member, even if he wasn't my dog.

Just today, my mother called and informed us she had to put down my best buddy, Sudzy. Sudzy went through a lot with our family, especially me. He was always my best friend who would sleep next to my pillow, follow me around (my little sheepling), and we would chirp at each other, even though I had no idea what I could be saying in 'cat speak'. He wasn't very trusting in people but he even learned to love Mike.

I just want to say rest in peace buddy, I don't think it will sink in that you're gone until I come home but... I wish I could have been there for you, I love you.

Rom Check Fail

Well, I thought I would share this because not only is it awesome, but very helpful too! Mike has started a blog where he's going to make posts that help with issues in Windows 8, such as unlocking features or how to iron out certain bugs.

Take a look and pass it on to anyone else who might be interested in taking a look!

Creature List

In my spare time I like to create creatures and make them seem real by thinking of habitats, hunting patterns, behaviors and so on. Well I decided why not take this one step further, polish my creations and put them on a blog where I can share them?

So I did just that, although it takes a lot of time so I only have one creature at the moment. I found this incredibly fun to sit and think about how I want this creature to behave and so forth, it's also great to work on in spare time.

I think for now i'm going to sort creations by 'type' under labels, but i'm not sure what is really the most effective. For now it works!

Anyhow please check it out at:

Valentine's to me is very much a Hallmark holiday, I don't need one specific day out of the year to celebrate my love for my boyfriend!

That being said it's still nice to take the time to make something! Be it a nice meal or a piece of art :)

This year Mike made me pink pancakes for breakfast with a pink POM drink, he bought me a  bouquet of pink roses, and we're having a valentine's dinner (dessert is still a mystery to me!).

I feel bad because Mike made me breakfast and is making me dinner along with dessert, but i'm not totally empty handed! We like watching Adventure Time together so I decided to make an Adventure Time themed picture for him! I decided to include our antique  steins  because they were something we bought together and we like to drink out of them on party occasions!

Well, Happy Valentine's Day everyone, and if you're single then enjoy the chocolate and candies, and make sure to send some love in your friends and families direction!

Still Alive

I probably have another post somewhere that's already titled "Still Alive", but yes, I am alive and working on my film. Here's a little piece I forgot I did in the new year.


Edit: HAH wow, the blog post below this one is titled Still Alive! I KNEW IT. Still keeping the title though, it amuses me.

Still Alive!

I can't believe i'm in the last four months of my five year career of college... I mean, some people spend longer in school but five years seems so long! Holy!

Anyway, I hope to have more to show you soon. I'm starting to animate on my film and I have to start thinking about an updated portfolio as well as... well, thinking about finding a job and getting out there in the world!

So yeah, hope you had a wonderful holiday, a fun new years, and a bright 2013 ahead of you!
