Happy BlenderNation birthday, Abby!


This weekend, Abby Crawford has been with BlenderNation for exactly two years. Her main activities are producing our Behind the Scenes and Meet the Artist series and this weekend, she reached the milestone of 300 articles! Abby also takes over site management when I'm on vacation or otherwise unavailable for work. You're a big help Abby, thank you!

Bart Veldhuizen

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.
