Was shopping at a well known clothing store here in Vancouver when who should I see standing across the rack from me? Wil Wheaton of STNG and of course recently Eureka!

I think the poor guy is used to the more aggressive US fan base as he looked ready to bolt when I looked at him and said “Hey I recognize that face!”

Added quickly nice work to which he replied “Thank you” with a big smile.

Never know what will happen living in Vancouver.

Last Exile anyone? :)

Started this as an attempt to get better at hard surface modeling.

Klause and Lavie’s vanship from Last Exile.

What if…

Starbase1 upped a revised ISS and I thought it might be fun to add a MAK docked to it.

A kind of “what if” image. I think it turned out kind of nice.

Finally….

Getting around to building the wee mascot on my business card.

Say hello to what is to be…Hobot

Another day at Siggraph 2011

Well another day at Siggraph…only this time on the Exhibit Floor.

Met a few LW’rsĀ  from all over that were as disappointed as I that Newtek could not be bothered to

try and sell a few seats in the second largest market in NA. What the heck people?

The official line I got is that they were spending their money on a show in LA.

LA? Who cares about seats being sold in LA? The people walking the Exhibit HallĀ  here and now ARE your target market!

Get some lost ground back in Vancouver!

Besides why the hell should I travel to LA to hear about what I should have here in my own town at an official Sigg event?

I understand prioritizing but talking to the press does not sell seats. Talking to prospective clients does. We have a great turnout here with a crapload of students being churned out of the 3D puppy mills.

What better bunch to try and convert into using your software?

I hope the next time Newtek comes to town they come here to actually do business and not keep flogging Avatar and virtual film making.

I understand riding the wave for all it’s worth but…Start selling Lightwave again people!

Pretty intimidating to say the least as there were a kazillion people there!

I got lucky and nabbed the corner of a nearby table and setup my own gear. The gear supplied was over run by

students from all over the place. While the ZBrush demo was going on I threw this together….
