A DAY IN THE LIFE OF AN ARTIST: Tomas Patlan, Animator

Hello! I’m Tomas Patlan and this is how my day went on Aug 21.

7:30 – I woke up, went to the balcony and said “Hi” to the morning. Sky was blue, the air was crisp and cool and it was going to be a good day!


While I was out there, I took a quick look over Sam’s plants. They haven’t been doing quite as well since we had moved here, 3 weeks ago. Maybe ‘cause the air is thinner up here on the 19th floor than the 3rd floor of our previous apartment. Maybe also ‘cause the nights have been colder. I don’t know. (Also, don’t mind the mess; we were getting ready to move again to a different apartment in the same building because of some registry error on the landlord’s part :/)


8:00 – I made some breakfast! I usually have a bowl of cereal but we ran out so today was oatmeal day. It was a mix of apple cinnamon and maple & brown sugar. It was quite delicious. And as I ate, I woke up my laptop and listened to some jams! I’ve been listening to a lot of The Cat Empire lately but I switch it up quite often, perusing jazz, folk, indie rock, techno, various latin genres, hip hop, anything really, but usually ending back up with some kind of funky mix or extreme metal.

8:30 – I got a little carried away with my music listening and internet browsing so I was running late. I prepared my coffee (Sam works at Starbucks so I get a free cup-o’-joe every morning at home. It’s nice ), finished getting for work and headed out.


On my way I looked down towards Spring Garden Rd. and I saw some nice looking flowers on my walk.


I continued on my way but I had to make a detour to the main Copernicus studio. They were putting me on some new work in the studio I normally work in so I needed my tablet. I took the one I was using in the main studio. Amanda was already there (she did a Day In The Life Of An Artist the same day I did and hers is already posted) so we talked for a little bit before I headed out.


9:00 – Finally made it to work. Corinne and I are usually the first two to show up in the morning. I set down my coffee, woke up my computer, rearranged my post-its (which happened to have some math scribbles for a problem I was solving to develop a 3DS Max plugin for moving objects towards/away from the camera while maintaining the same relative screen space; nothing real complicated but it was eventually nixed because we’re moving towards Maya instead. Oh well) and hunkered down into my seat for the morning. For me, development work is hugely synonymous with “sit”.

Oh yeah, Amanda usually talks to me throughout the day.


12:00 – I was SUPER hungry by this point! I normally eat a snack at 10:30 but I burn off food quickly; even if all I do is sit on my ass. I headed out to the SuperStore which is right next to work and grabbed my usual; a ham sandwich, tofu dessert package and a banana, which is sometimes replaced with a granola bar. Then I headed over to Amanda’s place to eat. She’s made it a ritual for people to hang out at her place for lunch because she lives literally 30 seconds from the main Copernicus studio. Sam joined us today too because she had the day off from Starbucks! It was only us 3 though; Alex was working and no one else decided to come. We watched some Dragon’s Den on Netflix.

1:00 – Heading back to work!


6:15 – I left early today. I didn’t have much work to do. I normally walk through the park and head straight home but today I was making a little detour to Sobeys where I thought I was supposed to meet Sam. She did a bit of groceries while I was at work and I was going to help her carry them up the hill to our apartment. Turns out she went to SuperStore, not Sobeys. Anyway, I saw this dude playing guitar next to the Sobeys parking lot. I tried listening to him a little as I walked by. He plays really quietly though so I don’t even know if he’s any good.

I continued to Sobeys and waited for Sam for a few minutes. I thought she might’ve made it home by then so I headed to our place and took the stairs; all 19 storeys of them. I haven’t been able to make it to the gym lately so I’ve got to make up for it somehow! Today I was able to make it in just barely over 2 minutes; my best time yet.

IMG_2109 IMG_2110 IMG_2112 IMG_2113

6:30 – Kicked my feet off and spritz-ed Sam’s plants in an attempt to keep them alive. Then Sam and I made supper (mostly Sam; I don’t think she likes it very much when I’m making food. I’m kind of unconventional and distracted in my ways. I think it frustrates her sometimes :P)

IMG_2120 IMG_2135

But we had breakfast for supper tonight and it was awesome! I made a face out of my plate and Sam dubbed it “Penis Face”. We normally watch a movie or tv show while we eat so we sat down on the couch and watched the next episode of Hemlock Grove. After supper we did our own things; Sam was organizing her new bunch of cross-stitch threads and I continued planning out an animation for the upcoming Nocturn Festival here in Halifax and we had the Yogscast playing in the background.

11:45 – I changed into my PJs, brushed my teeth, and took a shower.

12:00 – Bed Time!!
