Unashamed self-promotion...

Post by BbB » Mon Aug 25, 2008 8:24 pm

I haven't posted any work for a while, but I got some good news lately to cheer me up while I wait for the new Blendigo. My image, Sci-Fi city, made it into the exhibition pages of 3D World in the latest issue. Not as the image of the month, of course, but still, it's a start. Here's a huge scan of the page they sent me. (They omitted my mention of Stefan Norrell as the inspiration in the text, which is a shame).

I also had another nice surprise yesterday. While browsing through an architectural magazine while waiting for my wife and daughter at the train station, I ran into a full-page ad for a lighting manufacturer that used one of my Indigo images as motif (the white kitchen I posted a few weeks ago), though there wasn't any credit. I assume the guys bought the image as stock (the full-res are all for sale). I'll upload a scan of that too in the next few days.

Congratulations, BbB :D

Tell you the truth, I'm not that exited. Somehow, I think you're very good at what you're doing. (I'm not using the word "talented" here because your success comes from practices, experiments and all the time you put into) So, having your work ended up on magazines, books or TV commercials is quite expectable. :wink:

Well, to my opinion you're a hardworker but you defintely also have talent. Keep up the good job.

I got to say that I first look was at the car, namely since I've already knew that (amazing) pic of yours, and was quite astonished by it... sadly I got to the conclusion it wasn't nor made on Indigo :(

That is very cool BbB! :)
Also very cool is that you try to be humble (or you pretend well :) )
It is important to remember that no artist is a triangle unto himself.
