Lame Theme Park: July’s Rubber Onion Battle

 

 

Whenever there’s a new topic for the RubberOnion’s animation battle, I usually spend a few days brainstorming and trying to come up with something somewhat original. What defines a “lame” theme park?

Hurried End-of-July Update

I’ve been animating for the past four hours or so and my wrist started hurting, which couldn’t come at a better time because it means I can have a justified break and write a short blog post! Yay for pain! (I’m aiming to finish this month’s animation battle entry tonight after Eli falls asleep, and it looks very doable if I don’t fall asleep myself.)

In the meantime, as I rest my drawing wrist, here’s a short summary of what I’ve been up to this week:

  1. I’ve painted the town August gate orange. The full double spread, where on the left page I’ll write all the positive and cool things that happened, plus any cool quotes or advice I come across.

Early Morning Doodling

This was supposed to be my June Rubber Onion Battle entry post, but guess what! I hate the one I finished yesterday. There are a great many things wrong with it, but the most noticeable one is that there’s next to no animation in it.

All The #Mermay2017

Here are all the mermaid drawings I did for #Mermay2017 and published daily on my Instagram, gathered up in one post. I used Tom Bancroft’s prompts, which I wrote on some of the images. Looking at some of the “unnamed” ones now, I have no idea what the prompts for them were, and it was somewhat amusing trying to remember them 🙂

UK Trip (Part 2)

Edit before posting: It’s a little surreal reading about the attacks in London. Normally it’s my friends from there texting to see if we’re all okay here, the world seems to be turning upside down.

While Eli is busy splashing away in the tub with the cats under Husband’s supervision, I just might be able to finish yesterday’s post. Read more

UK Trip (Part 1)

….Aaaaaaaaand I’m back.
I’m now faced with the thing I kind of dreaded for the past two weeks: picking a very limited amount of photos to illustrate our UK adventure. Here goes nothing…

London
Once we finally arrived and settled in at the place we were staying in Greenwich, I fell asleep for a couple of hours (after a little over 30 hours of no sleep). I woke up as the maintenance man was entering the room I was napping in, and in all fairness I might’ve scared him as much as he surprised me. In the meantime, everyone else went to explore our surroundings:
