THE UB IWERKS AWARD 2019
One of the “Creative Tools for the Mind” our kids and us use just got a special reward: the Ub Iwerks Award (Ub Iwerks created, among others, the character of Mickey Mouse). It is given to honor individuals or companies for technical advancements that make a significant impact on the art and industry of animation.

TON ROOSENDAAL, A VISION DRIVEN LEADER
This award was given to none other than Ton Roosendaal, the genius creator of Blender. Of course the amazing Blender community of developers, artist and users of almost any age you could imagine made this 3D creation suite what it is. But if it has survive since the 90s and grew up to become one of the most look after software in the 3D animation industry, it is mostly thanks to the leader of the “Blender tribe”, Ton.
BLENDER 2.8 = 3D MODELING + 3D PRINTING + 2D & 3D ANIMATION + VR + AR…
Imagine that our kids can learn from 3D modeling to 3D printing and even 2D and 3D animation, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality without paying anything for the software. Even if a beginner can easily found his way through Blender (especially the last version Blender 2.8), more and more big animation studio use it among their tools. Artists, engineers, scientists, schools and many others use it as well. If it is good for them, it is good for our kids.
Dear parents, the vision we share of a World with proactive, open minded and creative kids just got rewarded.
Have a great day!
