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. This guys really intrigue me...
    How come I have never heard of such a personality?
    Jason van Gumster...
    DO you use any other 3D software?
    if yes can I see some of your work please?

    Thank you.
