...Happy Birthday, fucker.

Ah, Faith No More. Wise words.

Anyway, had my birthday party foshizzle last night- was heaps of fun! For years I didn't see the attraction of drinking but it's so much better when you're with all the people you like best. So.. mild hangover today. But it was worth it!

Have a picture-

My housemate Kathy and I- rather drunk as you can tell by my weird expression- I'm on the right. Back to hangover fuzziness....

Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!! [Dec. 21st, 2006|10:11 pm]
[mood |excitedexcited]

I am officially never allowed to complain about work ever again. They gave everyone a wii for christmas! I've spent a happy few hours playing Legend of Zelda- Twilight Princess, which I instantly ran out and bought. (So far, my only complaint is that the music isn't remarkable. And the manual is badly translated. Other than that I'm loving it)
Working for a games company is great in that it gives me a good excuse to play games- it's research. Mind you, being a 'professional' you think I'd be better at it (I spent about 20 minutes figuring out fishing when it's just a flick of the wrist... I suck :/)
So... tomorrow is work's Christmas party. What could be more fun than a bunch of drunk artists? Drunk programmers, that's what! They're a weird and varied bunch, in general. I aim to be far gone by 5pm tomorrow... wish me luck :P

Hey all!
Time for a longer post! As of late, in between working and trying to electrocute my Sims I haven't been doing much at all... was very sick yesterday, that sucked. Mostly I'm found trying to maintain my sanity on the trains and at work between mindless hords of gum-chewing, iPod cranking zombies. I think I'm failing. This morning a googley-eyed kid wished me Merry Christmas, right after I'd seen a midget in a suit.
Hmm... when was my last post... woah, April. Moving out has been the biggest thing, obviously.. Halloween/housewarming was large amounts of fun! http://www.imagestation.com/album/pictures.html?id=2100183914 Much carousing and drunkeness to be had for all the family.

And as always happens, this post isn't as long as I'd like... I be tired :P
Catch you on the flipside yo

Chocolate zombie brain grafting [Apr. 14th, 2006|11:31 pm]

[music |NIN- We're in this together]

Look, to all the people who keep hassling me about getting the internet at home, I'm trying!. Broadband, hopefully. Soon, soon...

I miss getting stolen creativity grafted into my brain artistic inspiration off of people like zakniteh and rajrr.... art is like crack, it's best done with your homies. Or is that speed? I don't know, I'm totally going to lose street cred over this...

All life has been lately is work+school+occassional computer game. I don't seem to read books anymore, which scares me (eewww, hardcopy). I have much art stuff backing up.... 2 x commissions and a couple of trades. Theres also many gifts that I would like to make for people. (Kathy hasn't had her Joker fix this month!).
I've been doing storyboards at work, which is great because it's actual drawing as opposed to pixel art. I'm can't wait for the damn game to be released so I can tell y'all what the dame game actually is. Much more fun than making a custom biped at school, which, while being quite useful and far better than using 3DMax's premade biped, IS DRIVING ME INSANE. Max has a very tenuous grip on logic.

The only real personal news I have is that I've been working on my own projects a fair bit lately. Which is perhaps why the trades and things are backing up. Oh, and I have no way to colour digitally at the moment, which doesn't help.

I managed to get ahold of Firefly + Serenity in the last month. If Jesus made a tv series, this is the series he would have made; Jesus was totally metal. I'm so very glad I didn't find this show before, because when it was cancelled I would have cried; and then lost my hardcore image.

And that's my post for April. Don't let the Easter Zombie eat your brain, people (he thinks it tastes like chocolate).

From Atarin-

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.

"Nightmares are usually rather daft things and it's very hard to explain to a listener what was so dreadful about your socks coming alive or giant carrots jumping out of the hedgerows." - Eric (The book is a joke on Faust)
Thank goodness it was a Pratchett book, no one is better than him for instant memorable quotes :D

In other news, tv makes me want to stab my eyes out, burn my electrical equipment and join a nunnery. I have a love-hate relationship with it. It's complicated.

The other thing that makes me want to stab my eyes out is that I can't stop thinking the word totally. THINKING. Not saying, I never say it. "I'm totally sick." "I've totally got a headache." "I'm totally a bimbo! Goddamitsonofabitch." I laugh when people tell me I'm smart.

I forgot to say last time that I've totally got a job! Yay for me. It's totally at a games company, and I totally get to draw stuff. Pixel stuff. Art that is.

Anyway, all you need is love. Peace out.

21 and still pretty darn immature... [Jan. 3rd, 2006|10:54 pm]

There comes a time in every grown up 21 year old's life where she has to make her next journal entry. This, my friends, is that day.
So, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! That is, to those of you who survived the heat wave. You know what my least favorite time of the year is? Summer. And you know what my least favorite weather is? Hot. And you know what my birthday was? THE HOTTEST FREAKING DAY WE'VE HAD THIS YEAR. But I digress.
At least I had the forsight (or luck) to hold my 21st some several weeks earlier. Amazingly, it didn't rain, a goodly number of the people I invited actually, showed up, I managed to stay vertical the entire night and I remember 80% of it! Is that good or what? It was really rather cool seeing so many different friends and family together! (Although some of the groups didn't mingle much). And all of the presents I got were either really cool, meaningful, useful, or the next best thing, alcoholic! I was feeling the love.
As for Christmas, well, I've gained some... ah... horizontal presence, if you know what I mean :P
And other than that? Still not finished with my animation at school, but I'm not stressed since I know I want to get it finished at some stage.... finally getting some of my own drawing done again. Hoooray!

Here's some Chrysalis for yez... I might with luck get this picture finished some day this year...

I'm tearing my hair out because I'm so busy this week. Which is a shame as Kathy's sister dyed it with lovely green stripes... oh well.
Insert witty and thoughtful journal entry here....

It's somehow intrinsically wrong to be conscious before 10am. Mguurrrrrrgghistabbamyeyes.

So yes, I'm sitting at school trying to get some work done. As you can see, it's not happening :P I think I need some caffeine, or failing that, hard drugs. I digress.

So yes, a busy week/weekend. Kathy will leave me because I haven't drawn her a Joker picture in several days :( The Australian Game Developers Conference was sort of fun, sometimes incredibly tedious; however, the PS2 drinks night made up for all shortcomings. Free booze, what can I say?

And I can elaborate on this on lj because we're all friends here, right? I won a scholarship! 6 grand towards my school fees next year! I'm the goddamn Batman! Ah-hem. Money is always good, but it's more the recognition I'm pleased about. In the art world it's so hard to get any sort of validation for your work, particularly since tastes and styles vary so much. Hooray for SONY and their tax-avoidance charities!

So I must get back to working hard if I want to finish my animation by the end of the year. Hooray for morph targets. Where did I put that gun?
