The Story of Stuff

Today it felt like the seasons were reversing and we're moving back into winter... Very cold in Toronto today.
Here is a picture of the lovely flowers Steve picked up for me the other day:

I found a video about stuff, and anti-consumerism... You need to watch it!!!! It's called The Story of Stuff and you can watch it HERE. This little film is sums up very nicely pretty much how I feel about our world and our daily lives.

I found a great way to jazz up the daily peanut butter sandwich.... Mix a couple big spoons of peanut butter with a smaller spoon of cocao powder and put it on your bread. Squirt on some honey if you wanna sweeten it. YUM!

I'm pretty busy at work still, but my big deadline right now is this Friday. I even went in on Sunday for a couple of hours to get some work out of the way. I did have enough time to start adding links to my blog however!! I used to have a long list of links but somewhere along the way they got erased... I think I changed my template or something... I'll keep adding links, when I get some more time :)

Still Busy

Still busy as bloody hell, but I'm scoping out some freelance animation work and so I've put a recent demo reel up on my professional art blog; http://sugar-bean.blogspot.com/.

Congrats Dan on getting that bursary to study French in Quebec and on graduating!!! Hopefully I can make a trip to catch up with you sometime soon.

Happy Birthday Wayne! Sorry I can't make it to you par-tee... :( You still have to come to my wedding.

Well, back to my deadline!

May 2008 Update!

Check out my updated Demo Reel! I can't put Grossology on it just yet, but I've added some Atomic Betty and Iggy Arbuckle clips. (All wicked shows that were awesome to work on!)

I've also posted my updated resume. There are a couple new images here as well, the painting I recently finished and the the cover I designed for my demo reel case.

Please look through my archives to check out more artwork! I've got life drawings and paintings here.

the glamourous world of fulltime blogging

Hallo, I know I've been absent from my blog, I've got stories to tell and things to say... but not much time to write them down. My days are 12 hour days now, no longer carpooling. I commute by foot/GoTrain/bus which is an hour and a half each way. I just had my skirt sewing class this past Wednesday evening, went to The Ryerson Graduating Fashion show on Tuesday (Mass Exodus: Paramnesia) last night took a field trip to the grocery store after work. So got lots to keep me busy.

Blogging can be fulfilling and pretty fun, even addictive if you let it go that far. Read this article on the glamourous world of fulltime blogging. I should actually get going, I'm at work and I think I'll already need to be coming in this weekend...

Still Life - Boots and Chillis

I remembered that I never posted a picture of my still life finished... It's been finished for awhile now and I even got a new USB cable to upload photos from my camera to my computer since I STILL can't find my old one... And now I've lost my pencil case... Anyway, no more crappy cel phone pics :)

my jaw hurts

updating the blog from work... bad! oh well. Horton Hears a Who was fabulous! It was funny, charming, warm, fresh feeling, mature and be-u-teeful! However it had a couple baaad sequences, the 2D anime thing and the song sequence at the end. Those sequences did NOT fit in and were in bad taste... Other than that it was such a great movie! I'm happy. The characters were believable too, I really could feel that Horton was an honest, caring guy, looking out for that speck...

In wedding dress hunting news, I finally purchased a gown! My mom took lotsa pictures, but obviously can't post them, so bug me or her and we can show you. I ordered a birdcage veil as well, I really don't like those normal veils, they seem silly and old and they cover up your back... They seem princess-y which just isn't for me. I'm sure they could be gorgeous and look great on many brides, but I won't have one. I love my dress, very pleased I found it.

My jaw is killing me for some reason, I don't think it's my teeth, my jaw aches... ugh... I think I'm going to get back to work and try to distract myself from the pain...
