Entering vacation mode


Hey folks! It's time for me to unwind a little and I'm on my way to the lovely Drôme region in France for 3 weeks of vacation. News will continue, albeit probably in a somewhat lower frequency. Enjoy the summer!

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. Happy holidays Bart, and welcome in our beautiful region ;) If you want to see nice mountains, come see me in Alpes de Haute Provence near Sisteron :) The weather will be awesome this week and if you like trekking it's great. Cheers !
