Amazon and Sybex have put together a "3D Animation Boutique" to promote several of Sybex's 3D titles in advance of Siggraph. They asked me to be part of it by providing some artwork by my favorite Blender artists. You can see the resulting page here (scroll down the page for my part).
There are a couple of interesting things here. There is a link to a page featuring artwork by some of my favorite Blender artists, a link to a free pdf chapter of Bounce, Tumble and Splash! (It happens to be the hair chapter, which is a really nice one, I think!) and finally a list of other Blender books available or coming soon from Wiley. This is interesting, because one of those books has not yet been announced anywhere and I think it will come as a pleasant surprise to a lot of Blendernation readers.
Thanks very much to Katsuhiku Omori (Ekakiya), Virgilio Vasconcelos, and Jonathan Ball (Poke) for allowing me to use their images for this promotion.
