row your boat..

Well the bathroom doors at the Boogie Bar are all done and finished and what fun that was!! So now the plan is to start getting ready for my upcoming exhibition, which will be this summer in Sifnos. I don't have a theme or title yet but I keep envisioning fishies everywhere.. Lol
I have been working in my journal to help ease into the swing of we'll see where that leads to.

Meanwhile...I'm keeping to my strict plan of painting during the day and animation at night...sooo I want to share my latest animation. I'm learning how to make blinking eyes and mouth movement. I need a lot of work in lip syncing...that's hard! but I'm determined to make it right. One of the fun things in animation is that when you design characters, you have to add a bone skeleton so they can move! so after I'm done drawing the little people I add bones to them!! hahaha

Boogie Bar

I've been commissioned to paint my characters on the bathroom doors, at Boogie Bar, a new place that opened a few weeks ago, here in Athens. Its my first commission for the New Year and I'm pretty psyched, since I've never done anything like this before :)

Blondie will be for the girls bathroom and Yellow for the boys. I was there yesterday painting and already they were getting a lot of attention from the customers, which made me extra happy!

back in the groove

No more excuses, the holidays are over..and it's time to focus, right? It always takes me a while to get back into the swing of the things, after Christmas.. Are you the same?! lol  I'd feel much better if I had some company in this! hahaha    This time a had the excuse of running around like a crazy person to fill out last minute orders, so I guess a much needed rest was in order.

But it's back in the groove now :)  and to get back in the flow of things, I took out my very neglected journal and finally finished the last four pages! whew! so now I need to start a brand new one, and I'm glad it will be with the new year :)
I need to make a confession at this point...cough, cough, I have been having a secret affair with... animation...during the holidays..(plz don't tell my journal)  But everything is under control. I promise.
I've made a strict schedule for myself. Paint during the day and animation at night. That way everybody is happy!! right?!
Just to let you know, I've missed you my friend!! Hope you are well and smiling :)
