Hi there, 👋 I'm Jonathan Lampel

Blender Instructor and Tool Developer

I'm working on a new Blender Course!

This will be a crash course into one of Blenders most exciting superpowers, Geometry Nodes! 

we'll dive deep into the ins and outs of Geometry Nodes and satiate everyone's curiosity about this new and powerful tool 


Learn more about the course

I'm one of the 3D instructors here at CG Cookie and I also work on tools that make Blender easier to use.

I've been using Blender for just over a decade and, while I'm happy to nerd out about any part of it, I especially enjoy the topics of modeling, shading, layout, and dynamics.
