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. @ Dalai: yeah! you got me :), this and that kinda DVD I'm working on :)

    But I would love to make it to Che! Blender, will do some online attending thingie I think.

    maybe next year!

  2. I wish I had the money and time to make it to Amsterdam - but I did the next best thing and order your dvd. :D

  3. Hi Pablo, I'm thinking of joining the course. I'm a great fan of your work, but I was wondering if you are a certified Blender trainer. Being a great artist and being a great teacher are two completely different things!

  4. @ Jeff: thanks a lot Jeff! there will be next times for sure!

    @ Olaf, thank you :), you can always check the updated list of Blender Foundation's Certified Trainers at:

    You can always check the list of courses I gave, in the About section at my site:

    Not too many, but already 2 times the Blender Essential at the Blender Institute, plus some others, I don't know if I'm a good teacher or not, but I can ensure you I will try my best to teach you all I know in the best way for you to learn it.

  5. Haaaa ! finally a blender course nearby (near belgium i mean !) ! Too bad i can't make it since i'm on a big freelance job !

    Well i'll be there in mind... Great initiative anyway !
