New year, still busy

So... I was supposed to come back from my holidays, super relaxed and ready to blog hardcore. Instead I decided to do a shoot for my next campaign and so I've spent the last week doing storyboards, budgets, having meetings with set designers, hiring camera and lighting crew etc. which is hard work but super exciting.

I remember being at uni, doing shoot after shoot and thinking "this is fun but I wonder what I'll be doing when I grow up". Well this is real life and I'm getting paid to do fun and awesome things. I don't really believe in resolutions but I've decided to push myself out of my comfort zone and just go for it, even if it's crazy and scary. So having pitched a big shoot on the first day back after Christmas I think I'm doing okay, actually.

I have also decided to get a tattoo of a super 8 camera on my right wrist to satisfy my tat cravings until the big Russian doll project kicks off sometime in the autumn, hopefully.

All these thoughts and plans are making me feel very happy and excited about the future. In fact, the January blues have yet to make an appearance.

And if they do, I'll just dance like a lunatic to this song:

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!


  1. I was just listening to that last night! Good choice :) Where are you going for your tattoo?

  2. *Also, I think it's wonderful that you can do work you love and get paid for it. I'm envious for sure.

  3. Yeah it's such an awesome, timeless classic!

    For my tattoo I'll probably go to Frith Street, I am already on Valerie Vargas' list for another tattoo there but I am sure one of their other guys will be able to do something cool so I'll see if anyone is taking new clients at the moment. :)

  4. uh, du må poste billeder af din tattoo når du får den!!

  5. Det vil jeg gøre, tror den bliver fin! :)

  6. I read a post you left on another blog saying how you hate phony blogs, and I had to cruise on over to say that I couldn't agree more. I follow tons of blogs because there is so much amazing information out there, but I un-follow the ones that only talk about what they are selling. It's such a waste of time. I'm going to follow you now, so don't let me down! :)

    Your new tattoo sounds awesome, and David Bowie rocks my face off!

  7. Yay, thanks for following me! It's funny, your book list on your blog is almost identical to our bookshelf.

    I also really like your paintings, well done! :)

    I will do my best to not let you down (and to do more updates from now on)!
