Will I Do A Drawing For You?

*WARNING* this post riddled with sarcasm-meant to offend


Yes I have nothing better to do with my time and would LOVE to do you a drawing, or animate your brilliant script, and of course I can do it in less than a week. No problem. You want Disney quality? What else? And you are offering the chance to work on something "ground breaking" (I think you need to look that term up) Never mind that it takes a team of hundreds 2-4 years to do an animated feature, I can definitely do it by myself in just a matter of days. Of course because I believe that your script is better than anything out there. Even though, it isn't funny, the characters don't make any sense and no child would ever care about this story, you have it, I will animate it.

And I get to design the characters? WOW Bonus!

I get CREDIT? OMG! What a great deal thank you so much. I can't wait to add another credit to a list that is so long, I am dropping off projects.

You want me to "brand" you? You will send your new postcards out and everyone will see my work? What a great opportunity for me. I mean, never mind the 20 or so animated feature films I have worked on, 2-6 commercials a year, or shorts that are on the air where people see my drawings, having my drawing on your business card will put me into super stardom. Thank you for the opportunity, this is awesome!

A logo? For your product that will go out all of the world-that is, if and when you sell this idea you have-why would I want money for that? I love to draw, it's fun. I will get right on that.

You want a card for your loved one's birthday? Thick and thin lines, witty dialogue and full color-what? It's due THIS weekend? I have three whole days to get it done?

I really am so happy you are asking, me a professional artist, to work for free, because I love to draw, it's fun so why in the world would I expect to get paid?

Sorry that my actual job and life have gotten in the way of you taking advantage of me.

"Who Would You Have Dinner With?"

In college and even some job applications that age old essay question always pops up: "Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive, if given the chance?"

In 10th grade, I answered Madonna because I thought she was strong, ambitious, smart and could do whatever she wanted. I admired her so much, and wanted to be like her in many ways-not a pop start-but I wanted to be like her spirit. I was living alone at the time (long story), and had really no one in my life to look up to and she was a role model to me.

In 12th grade we were asked the same question and again, I answered, Madonna for the same reasons. Although at this point I had moved in with my mother and my step-father, who hated me in high school. I was really close to my step-brother John, but still felt isolated and alone and Madonna symbolized someone who made it on her own, even though things were hard.

Throughout the years I have had many idols and of course that question has been asked of me in interviews and su…

How to Be Healthy and Fit-Don't Listen To....

People often ask me about health & fitness because I was so involved in that industry for so many years and I still post about great programs, blogs, books, trainers, online classes, programs etc. (like Denise Austin-who was the first person I trained with in the late 80s to get certified, Michelle Bridges, Mari Winsor, Tracey Anderson and workouts like Barre3, The Bar Method, Zumba, etc).

Here is what I'm going to say.
1) Just because someone has starved themselves and lost a ton of weight, that does NOT make them an expert.
2) Just because someone runs or goes to the gym, that also doesn't make them an expert.
3) People who give sweeping advice like, 'be gluten free, be vegan, only eat 1000 calories a day' etc.. are not qualified to tell you, or anyone else how to be healthy.
4) Also, SKINNY does NOT equal healthy, this is a dangerous concept.

These are important things to remember.
If you want to lose weight or get healthier, please go to your fitness club and spe…

Letter To My Sandwich

Dear Grilled Cheese Sandwich,

I just wanted to say thank you for being so yummy and keeping me full during these hard economic times. You are always faithfully there ready for lunch, or a snack, and sometimes breakfast. The way the cheese melts between your two slices of bread, make you irresistible to walk away from and impossible to ignore.

I love you completely with my whole heart. You were the only one who helped me through my college years when I was just new to the adult world. You helped me make the transition back into eating after quitting acting. You guided me through many a late night working in animation those first few years. Now you are back to help me survive through this hiatus.

I will always be grateful that you are there, cheap and easy. Your ability to keep me full for an entire week and yet not requiring that I empty the piggy-bank to do so means more than I can ever express. I believe that we will be seeing a lot of each other in the next few weeks until I start …
