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. Yep, sounds like it might be a fun night. As mentioned, a few of us from promotion are taking a trip down from Sydney for the night, so we look forward to seeing the rest of you there!

  2. Sounds like a good idea. I'd love to come but I'm performing that night (Dizzy's Jazz Club in Richmond, we'll be there till 10, feel free to drop by afterwards).

    I'll try to come to any subsequent meetings.

  3. I'm in Brisbane, Dingo_aus, but I've havn't used blender in ages since starting my design degree. But if somebody organised a Brisbane meetup, It'd be great.

  4. Dingo_aus, bjzaba, and other blender users in Brisbane,

    I can work out the logistics and find out what will be required to book a tutorial_room/lecture_hall at UQ(St lucia) if you guys want to meet up and do *something* related to blender :)

    Just reply on this thread or *nickname* .at. and we'll see where this goes.

    To the other readers: please spare me the grilling for using the comments section to try to get organised.
