Hi! How you? Awesome, I hope!
This my first ever, titled entry, here at blenderartists and it’s more of a quick hello About Me intro, than it is a Blender render. Those am sure, in time, will come.
So humbly, here we go!
I’m a 2nd gen creative with a wobbly talent standing on the shoulders of a giant, my uncle. And, to some large measure my mother’s and father’s too. Epic view!
I came up through Architecture … then slid hard sideways into Graphics.
Worse than that???
My creativity has the natural force to slum! Yes, slum!
I can slum and have slummed, in many many other disciplines … including fashion, furniture, food and photography. Yes, food!
In 2010, I tried to honor my uncle, William Caldwell, who was an incredible artist, my mother’s twin brother. I spent huge amounts of time in his studio both as a child and as an adult. Insane talent, he was. You wouldn’t believe what he could do with a loaded brush! Up there with Goya and Rembrandt, academically, critcally acknowledged.
So, in a vain attempt to carry the torch … I created an online/offline persona of Neil Caldwell as the face of my creative endeavors and then said Hello to the world, your world, with Colored Bacon …
Insane amount of global coverage!
Who knew changing the course of bacon would be such a big deal, ha!
So ya, when interviewed a zillion times about Colored Bacon I got a shot to talk about my mentor and my friend who died of cancer wayyy to soon … sigh.
So now I’m here … time to emerge from that chrysalis.
So hello. How you?
