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. The last two issues have had some odd cover glitches it seems. #42 the online version does not display the title text over the background color bars on Chrome, though it is fine on Firefox. #43 appears to have the wrong text for the issue... the stories listed correspond to the #41 publication. I hope everyone is okay over there and that the glitches will sort themselves out by next issue.

      • Bart you mentioned I should contact the Blender Art do I do that, there is no link on to message anyone?

        all I see are the links to back issues of the magazine itself
