I succeeded, right?

Ok, to give this post SOME meaning, please leave a note under this thread at BlenderArtists if you're planning to come to the premiere of Big Buck Bunny.

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. Unrelated: I saw a giant easter bunny driving the car before me last night. Suddenly seeing those the silhouette of those large ears made me think of hugs, dunno why!

  2. @NielsBlender: ah, darn ;-) Weggestempeld! Ik heb ook even de postcode uit jouw comment gestempeld. Niet zo heel dramatisch allemaal maar ach :)

  3. Hmm, spreading some confusion.... hèhè.... I might try to find someone called Ninet to join me, and start shouting "Mine, it's me, I'm Bart!"

  4. Sorry Bart, that invitation was meant for your neighbors Bert & Lilet... if you could just drop it off there, thanks. Again, sorry about the confusion.

  5. congrats , so your in with the big boys now.
    A streak of genius also to go stand infront of a bookcase realy makes you look inteligent. ;)
    wasn't the entrance free anyway?, well I could hop on my bike, if I can find the time, I only live 7 min away from that place :P.

  6. Actually, you can't make your own in Photoshop.

    Now, if I fire up GIMP and create one (open source) does that count?

    Sorry, couldn't resist ;)

    Congrats on yours!

  7. ha! it worked. i am soooo jealous! ( i too could just hop on my bike and be there in a few months. but there would be swimming involved. ) have fun!

  8. @Guardian

    Aargh all this work to make a fake invitation only to see it fail because of a non-opensource program.
    It would be a big gesture to the opensource community if they let you in though :)

  9. Didn't work at all for me. I'm not jealous, I'm proud of you and happy for you. Sadly, I won't be able to make it, VIP or not. See you next Conference.
