I finished tweaking my cogs image. Here it is.
I am currently working on an image that popped into my brain one day and decided to show an image while it is still in progress.
Whilst writing this title, I thought it might be a good title for the image, which depicts the hard-working cogs inside that power the pretty lights outside. You can take the metaphors you want out of this; the hard workers not getting credited for their work (ahem, VFX), or the poor struggling at the bottom to keep the wealthy looking glamorous and beautiful above. A bit like the Titanic!
But really, I think I just like cogs. And metal. And my name.
So… I have to finish this now.
My eyesight finally gave up the struggle and decided to hand in the towel… It went crawling to the opticians for a helping hand. Oh dearest eyes, we had a good run didn’t we?
It was my birthday yesterday! And what a beautiful time I had, half the day lying lazily in bed, the other half drinking with my friends. I feel like a lucky girl.
I made a cake to take into my office, as I’ve been told it’s traditional to do that on your birthday. I decided to bake a lemon cake, and decorate it blue.
Then I decided to put glitter on top. Basically I made a cake that 13 year-old Chelle would have loved. This got me wondering why we feel we need to act our age. It also got me wondering why we don’t eat more blue food.
The cake was eaten up, I turned another year older, the last year of my 20′s, and I decided not to try and act my age. When you approach 30 a lot of people discuss the pressures and expectations that suddenly appear at this ripe old age. So I decided, sod that! Put glitter in your food, why not? If you act as crazy as you want, one day, if you’re lucky, you will actually be OLD, old enough for the craziness to become acceptable again.
This is not a meaningful post, just a big old hands-in-the-air celebration of being forever young. Woooohhoooooo! The only thing blue about my birthday this year was the cake.

Well, Christmas has come and gone, I am back living in London, and I haven’t posted in a while. Hello!
I got an i-phone 4s at Christmas, and have been exploring the photography possibilities of it’s beautiful camera. This was my main reason for choosing an i-phone over all the other smart phone choices; to have an HD quality camera on me at all times. How exciting!
What I have also been late-in-the-game with is this Instagram app… I am loving the quick quirky effects you can get with just a few taps!
Here are some Christmassy colours I have for now. Ho ho ho!
This is a Work In Progress Illustration I am working on, that I am trying to make purely 3d modelled with 3DS Max and rendered with Vray.
I love cakes, and the main challenge is making delicious food look delicious. Also, the hair needs to be modelled differently, yes yes, much to do still.
To be continued!
I have finished a video I have been working on recently, named Berlin Sleeps Alone Tonight, starring Lisa Weber and Sebastian Kempe. Set to one of my favourite songs by The Postal Service, The District Sleeps Alone Tonight. I casually filmed shots for this video over the last few months and it is really nice to see it come together as a finished video.
My beautiful German actors were fantastic, and along with the pretty yellow trains, help make this video look good.
