Hi there, 👋 I'm Jonathan Lampel

Blender instructor and tool developer

My New Course ASSEMBLE is NOW STREAMING

ASSEMBLE is a crash course on one of Blenders most exciting new superpowers, Geometry Nodes! 

Beginners and Pros can excel with this course.  You don't even have to be a math whiz to learn modeling and animation using Geometry Nodes.

Go to ASSEMBLE

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.
