Rachael Dunk is a digital artist who works on content for film, print and shortform. As a 3D generalist she spans many disciplines, from creative and illustrative advertising to look development and architectural vizualisation. She also works as a lighting artist for vfx and animated films and has recently branched into vizualisation for furniture and homeware designers.
Working across these varied industries has given a unique perspective to her work and the ability to combine many skills to create something truly special. When you blend this with her prodigous visual memory and unhealthy obsession with art, you have a dangerous combination to create beautiful imagery.
Rachael has worked for clients such as Electric Art, MC Saatchi, and Leo Burnett, and has worked on films such as Happy Feet Two, The Great Gatsby and the upcoming animated feature The lego Film.

If you could resurrect one no longer living person to have lunch with, knowing you will have to return them to the grave right after coffee, who would it be?
John Kennedy Toole. They serve brain at this cafe though right? I don't want him to go hungry.
Preferred method of dealing with an encounter with an acquaintance whose name you can't remember.
Although rather awkard, asking their name for the third or fourth time is still a great conversation starter.
Why don't you flip the tortoise over, Leon?
Way too much sexy saxophone and mood lighting, not enough electric sheep.
How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
I thought a woodchuck was a bird, so I was trying to think up a bird related answer, turns out its a rodent…

All of them *wink wink

Pixar, but replace imaginary with future, I'm an optimist.
How does your mother describe your profession?
That I take pictures out of the computer.
Coffee or tea?
A piccolo in the morning then tea the rest of the day, current heavy weight champion is Vanilla Roibos.
What's your earliest drawing memory?
I remember making these little picture books where the main character was a cut out tied to a piece of string. There would be a place on every page to put them so you could interact with the story.
How do you prefer to spend your mornings?
In bed with Hemmingway, Nabokov or some other God of words.
