Time off

I'm currently taking a break from animation on Pickled to focus on my family. :) We just moved to Vancouver. I'm coming up with new story ideas, I may do some freelance work and I'm practising my French.

Temporary Desk Setup

I'm packing up my apartment for another big move... This time I'm heading to Vancouver, BC! I already disassembled my desk and sold it. So this little record holder is my (very temporary) desk setup!

Apologies for the long absense from my production blog here! In 2014 I gave birth to my son and he has been my priority through my pregnancy and beyond. It will probably be another 3 or 4 months before I can do another update. Much is changing in my life so it will take some time for me to settle and find some routine. Right now I'm in the middle of packing up my home for a move. I physically can't even get to my desk these days due to all the "stuff" piled around it. I can't wait to have comfortable desk access again someday.

I recorded the portion of this week’s podcast with Deanna in February 2014 about a week or so before she took off to see the world for a year. Finally I share it online! I didn’t have big plans for the podcast while I was making it but I wanted to grab Deanna for an interview before I wasn’t going to see her for a full year at least. I can’t wait to see all the amazing artwork she’s making on her trip and the photos she’s taking!!! So visit theanimationworkout.com on Wednesday Oct 15 to hear my interview with her! 

Here are a couple of drawings that Deanna has done while on her travels:
