I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Your contribution to Blender is wonderful! The updated tutes are great. Many of the learning tools floating around are for legacy versions of Blender and it can be very difficult for a noob like me to climb the learning curve and navigate differences in the versions at the same time. Thanks again!

    Second that kudos, and raise you Congratulations on getting another on the streets! It's great to get such proffesional material properly presented for NIX! Blender-land is like this other world where people are nice to each other and helpful too. Not like the real world. Oh well.

    And thanx for BlenderNation it's a worthy continent in Blender-land.
