A well needed update!!

Hello blogger world! I've been missing for some time, so here's an update since my last post was well over a year ago!

What have i been up to since September 2010... ??  Well, i worked as a flash animator on the series 'Total Drama Revenge of the Island':

And 'Jimmy Two Shoes' Season 2. My wonderful talented husband, Dipesh Mistry, was Animation Director on this intro, doesn't it look great?!

And last, but not least! other season of Total Drama Island 'World Tour'. I animated some of the scenes in the intro:

Phew! That was the rest of my year in 2010, and most of 2011! Will share what i've been up to since then in my next post!

Total Drama World Tour Premier!

Tonight is the night, Total Drama World Tour (season 3) Premiers on Teletoon at 8pm.

Here's the details:

I was an animator on season 1-3, and will be starting on season 4 soon. If you all tune in maybe it'll even be season 5, 6, 7.... :)

P.S. - about the lack of posts lately; i live in Canada.. we only get 3 months of really good weather a year, so i tend to take advantage of that. I will be snowed in soon though and therefor have a lot of free time! So more posts to come very soon.

Just because i'm not blogging, doesn't mean i'm not busy!

It actually means the complete opposite!! I have been slaving away at the second book for our 'Hawbear's Adventures Series', and i am happy to say that i finally sent it to the printers this monday!! Yey! So now i'll have some extra free time to dedicate to the blog again. Some sample pages from the book will come in a post soon following this one, but for now, here's something new images to look at. (also from the 2nd book.)

Snow Monster!

Just a little doodle i did close to the holidays, trying to relax after a day of shopping in over-crowded malls. I was hoping to get this one on Artjumble, but couldn't find enough time to finish it later in the week. I still plan on finishing it, eventually... :)

Merry Christmas!

Our christmas card this year! I have to give all the credit to my talented husband, Dipesh, who did most of it! I took care of the christmas baking and made sure he didn't go hungry while he worked away on the card!

Here it is, hope you like!

mmm... cookies!!

Disney World!

It's been a very long time since i've posted... so if there's anyone that actually still looks at this this is one of the reason's why! My husband Dipesh and I took a much needed (and by much needed i mean 3 years much needed) vacation! So we finally decided to go to Disney World in sunny Orlando, Florida USA! Even though it was much colder than we anticipated for being florida... it was still lots of fun. I've never been, and my husband only 2 when he was pretty young to remember much, so it was like going for the first time! It was alot of fun, though we both wished there were more rollercoasters!!

Here's the proof :)

Activity Sheets

Here are some colouring sheets i did for the local kids in my hometown. Its just alittle something for them to do, and helps us promote the book. Hope you like. :)
And yeah, i know the blogs been a little neglected these days - fellow Canadians understand when we only get a few months of the year of great weather to enjoy, and with so many events going on. Come fall i will definately be posting more regularly again!

The topic this week for Monday Artday was HAIR! Right away it made me think of the 80's! Who could ignore the big hair and crazy perms! So this sketch is inspired from those times. Unfortunately i didn't have enough time to do a finished coloured version, but it's on my 'to do list'... which seems to be getting very long these days! So check back later if your intersted :)

I'm thinking hot pinks and neon greens! Thanks for looking.

I have no title for this post...

Getting in any drawing time during the summer seems to get harder and harder the further we get into the calender - the more it fills up. So heres a sketch i did alittle while back, hopefully another coloured version to follow when i can find the time. :)


Friday, June 13, 2008

Here's the cleaned up version of the sketch i did 2 posts below. I just kept this one simple - flash line and point and click colouring. When i get more time i wanna play around with more textures and different styles, any suggestions?

And have the printers busy getting more ready. So far we have been getting alot of posative feedback, but I still always welcome your comments and critiques!

New Book - Hawbear

So i started a blog and haven't posted anything yet. There is a good reason for that - and this is it! I have been working on a new book series with my mom Sheila McDermid. She is the author and I did the illustrations. Here is a sneak peak:

The story is the first of a series of books that we plan on doing for my hometown on Manitoulin Island. This first one is about taking a ride on the Chi-cheemaun, the actual boat you can take from Tobermory to Manitoulin Island... which is a great spot to vacation might i add - if you love swimming, hiking, fishing, camp fires or just sitting around working on your tan ;)

The books are being launched this weekend (may 16th) and will be available for sale then aswell.
If you are interested in a copy they are selling for $15 and you can contact me directly or Sheila @

I have to give a special thanks to my husband Dipesh for helping me out in the end due to a tight deadline - but after a few to many late nights we pulled it through! Go check out his blog over at -he's much more talented than me! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
