I thought I should mention that my wife’s documentary film, Angry Inuk, been garnering enormous international acclaim. First it won the prestigious Audience Award at Hot Docs, then continued on to win awards at every festival it’s been to around the world. It’s a documentary about how Inuit have been affected by anti-sealing propaganda, and I got to play a small role in the film, having done the artwork and animation that went alongside the liveaction. (To be honest, I would’ve given her the cold shoulder if she had hired someone else. Love you, honey!) If you can, make sure to head out and see it. Hopefully there’ll be a theatrical release in the States to compliment its release in Canada- a feat I might add that not many documentaries every attain. Unfortunately, most documentaries never make it to the box office since people are more interested in seeing crap on the big screen.
On more of a me-me-me note, check out some of these spreads I did for the commercial book Wild Eggs before taking time off to build our house. (I’ll do a post sometime soon showing y’all what the house is looking like, and some of the design details and features I’m proud of. I’m an uber nerdy Construction Science guy. Heck, I even did a stint at university in architecture. But I sort of dropped out after a year…after having dropped out of civil engineering. Turns out I wasn’t meant for University, I guess. But they had no problems whatsoever taking my money as I spent three years figuring that I like to make things with my hands instead of having my face buried in a textbook…But I digress. Which I’m allowed to do since this is my website. So there.)
I wish I’d had the iPad Pro while illustrating Wild Eggs…my wrists were killing me using the large Intuos and the keyboard with all of its Siren-like shortcuts. I can really see how sloppy some of the work is since I couldn’t do any of the accurate work I’d’ve like to have done which is now second nature using Procreate on the iPad Pro. Don’t get me wrong, it can be liberating (and fast) to work messily when you’re painting in photoshop, but when you want to do fine work, like tracing your lines, then the Intuos sucks. Go check out my previous post on how much I’ve come to love the large iPad Pro.
