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. I'm not a Blender developer, but I'll give 3 cheers non-the-less for the developer blog! Lols. I've heard plenty of times before that it's very hard to get into helping develop Blender and many highly useful would-be helping hands have given up for this very reason. Who knows what kind of features we would have had if we had more info/help available for developers sooner.

    Continue to amaze me Blender community, because you've never failed to do so in the past! ^^
