CGW cover and feature story – Siggraph 2008

I got the cover and feature story for the Computer Graphics World magazines August issue.

(Volume: 31 Issue: 8)

 

"This year’s SIGGRAPH conference is acknowledging the dynamic shift
toward 3D in the entertainment industry, not only by the two days of
programming on the subject, but also by commissioning veteran animation
artist Meats Meier to create a digital hologram to serve as the
centerpiece for the conference and the exhibition’s newly revamped
Computer Animation Festival. "

 

You can read the feature story here at the CGW website.
The article was written by Linda Law.

  Also mentioned in this RENDEROSITY.com article about the show (interview with Jill Smolen, conference director).

 

PIXOLOGIC.com has me on their front page currently, with a few details about how I used Zbrush (along with Maya and Groboto) to create the image.
