Named Maya Master

a "Maya Master" by Alias at the Global Users Association meeting at
Siggraph in San Diego. I was presented a certificate and a really nice
custom leather jacket (only ten exist) on stage in front of a crowd of
1800 people. Congratulations to the other Masters this year:

  • Scott Brew from LucasArts
  • Tejima-san from Polyphony
  • Daniel Roizman from Sony Pictures Imageworks
  • Rob van den Bragt from The Mill
  • Hiroyuki Hayashida formerly from Square USA

art was printed on several larger format posters and placed around the
venue, and at the end of the night, most of them had mysteriously
vanished…I was honored. HP also used my "Mother Nature" image on it’s
flyers that were placed on each and every seat.


thank you Duncan Brinsmead and Paula Suitor



Maya 4.5 Fundamentals

"Etcher" image printed in the book – "Maya 4.5
Fundamentals" by Jim Lammers and Lee Gooding. It has a lot of great
information and covers every aspect of Maya really well. I definately
recommend this book if you are trying to learn this program.


thank you Jim Lammers
