A DAY IN THE LIFE OF AN ARTIST: Tara Audibert Freelance Illustrator

7:38am Wake up. Kiss Curtis good-bye and ponder about getting up and what I need to do today.

8:10am Get up and attend morning ablutions.

8:35am Go for run with Burke

Morning Run with Burke

The long road behind me

The hole to hell? or under the bridge. Either way I am sure a troll lives here. He is also evil.
IMG_1131
Hey! Who’s walking who here?
IMG_1132
I live by a pipe plant. I thought this might be interesting. Some trucks. This is all in the middle of the woods. The rest of where I run is the woods.

Burke in a pipe!

Pipes and Sand

More pipes and sand.
IMG_1135
Now this is art! I often just notice and photograph the beautiful arrangements of the pipe that these guys create! It is weird, but I have a huge collection of pipe photos like this. For no reason. I guess because it’s beautiful.

More pipe puppy

More pipes, seriously, this was not all the photos I took just on this day alone. I think I may have a problem.
IMG_1143
We finished out run and I take a photo of us both every day we run and measure it with nike+ running app. This is another art project I am working on, and when I have a bunch like 100, I’ll put them all together and that should be cool. I think I have like 40 or so now.

9:15 Return from walk, do my circle exploration & checkout the garden. Check out this one and more of my explorations here

IMG_1145
So everyday I collect a handful of white rocks from my driveway and pile it together and take a photo.
IMG_1146
The circle was dispersed over the winter.

My tiny garden we started. I go check it out and we usually have something to pick each day.

Some cucumbers pretty ready! 🙂

This was just weird red things, I thought was weird.

Choppin’ broccoli! Choppin’ brocola-hay
IMG_1153
Tomatoes

watermelon, baby.
IMG_1155
Checked out our koi pond, which has no koi, because someone (Burke) like to use it as a swimming pool!
IMG_1156
getting some moss between our rocks. Today I watched moss grow. I don’t know if this is what this blog is all about, but…yes today I watch moss grow.

9:30am Eat Breakfast, Curtis made awesome green smoothie, which is red because of added raspberries so it tastes awesome!

IMG_1157 IMG_1158 IMG_1162

9:50am Find computer, clean desk, start artist for a day thing & Do an actual list of what I need to do today/this week.

10:00am Check emails, social stuff etc..

IMG_1163
My desk, where all the magic takes place!

10:13am Watch RHWOC while I work on guest animating an episode of Illos animated podcast. Here is a little video of me animating something. It is not a spoiler, a bit dry, so I sped it up, that made the RWH way better!  also did some funny biz towards the end. 🙂 It took me a while to decide on the eyes for this scene. I am animating in a bit of an unorthodox way, just going with the feel, no storyboards or preproduction, so it takes longer. Save time and storyboard. I am just experimenting.

11:50am took Burke out to sunbathe and ate some lunch.

12:06pm Switched to Inking Comic pages. I do illustration for a couple comic companies and today I am working on an educational comic concerning Justice Centres on Native Reserves and what they can do to help people. This part a dog is run over. It is sad.
