Flathed animated movie from Blokkhed.

Hi there, a bit slow in posting these days, the day job is a bit busy at the moment, plus I'm trying to get a lot of work onto Alamy as well. But Ihave finally edited together a very rough cut of my Flathed animated movie [above]. This is a long on-going project and may or may not be finished. The little Flathed man is lost on a cuboid world and faces many trials and tribulations. To be continued......

Matthew Chattle Photography website

A little advert for myself here. I've just set up a website of my photography, matthewchattle.com. It's very different from the Blokkhed work and shows another side to my work. Please take a look and feel free to buy any pictures you want through Alamy.

The Laboratory. Robot. Blokkhed. Matthew Chattle. Concept art.

This is a close-up of the Blokkbot robot in the laboratory undergoing some sort of devilish process that involves him being immersed in boiling liquid, a process so complicated even I don't understand how it works.

Illustration. Blokkhed. 1960s. The Beatles. Music. Caricature.

Here are 'The Heds' and they're growing their hair. Again, they shouldn't be confused with any popular four piece from the 1960s, no not at all.....

Illustration. Blokkhed. 1960s. The Beatles. Music. Caricature.

Here's the 'With the Heds' album cover from 'The Heds' or 'The Flat Four' as they were sometimes known. Not to be confused with any other 1960s beat combo. But a group called The Beatles were quite good as well.

Robot. Science Fiction. 3D. Cinema 4D. Blokkhed.

This is a render [with Cinema 4D] and Photoshop image of my Robot in his escape from the city. Yet again this is a project that has stalled somewhat. I developed a backstory for the robot and his origins, I hope that posting this will make me get more work done on this.

3D Design. Character Concept. Creature. Cinema 4D. Sculpture. Matthew Chattle

Here is a new character concept. This was two day sculpture, although I don't work solid each day, so it is more like a six hour piece of work. It started out as a Vinyl toy design and looked like becoming a bunny, but seems to have become a bat like creature design. I like taking an idea for a walk to see what will happen, it can surprise me sometimes where it will go, good fun to do. I may well add texture at some point.

Mid Century Modern. Print. Illustration. Design. 1950s.

I'm exploring 1950s design at the moment and a lot of fun it is too. As I said before I'm going to have prints made for sale [somewhere, maybe Etsy].

Mid Century Modern. Pattern. Design. 1950s.

Mid Century Modern decor was inspiration for this piece. I'm enjoying this series of work at the moment, I have to get back to the animation soon, but as always a new inspiration has come along. The Populuxe era had it all, style for its' own sake and wild and eventually mis-placed optimism for the future. More to come in this vein in the next weeks....

Sputnik. 1957. Mid Century Modern. Illustration


1957 and the world got smaller. Sputnik raised tension between East and West and started the space race. Mid Century Modern design and art took inspiration from this event and so have I.
A Cold War in the vacuum of space.

The American Look. Mid Century Modern design.


part 1 of a fabulous look at American design in 1958. A piece of self-promotion for a stylish era. It has all the opulence and glamour and optimism of America of that time. Excellent.
This is the first time I've posted something that isn't my own creation!

The King. Chess piece. Vinyl Toy. Cinema 4D. Character design. Gothic.


This is how the King will look in the chess set. I have to get the Knight and Castle finished and that will complete that project. The animation work is gradually getting onto YouTube and you can see this above. You are seeing some earlier test work, but as with much of what I've produced it should be out there and seen. There is a bigger amount of work to come with the adventures of the Flathed in a dangerous world!

Happy New Year! Blokkhed


I've been very busy with work recently and I've also been taking photos for my Alamy work so not much time left for this Blokkhed. But I have decided to put some of my animation work that I did on an earlier project onto here/YouTube. I've worked on this project based around the FlatHed character-the little red man you see here being menaced by some huge metal men. This is one of those ideas that just grew and grew, I had too many other commitments so I stopped working on it, but there is a lot of work there so I want to show some of it. I have to get a few things done yet so it should be late this month.
