Hi there, 👋 I'm Wayne Dixon

A Blender Animation and Rigging Instructor here at CG Cookie.


G'day! I'm Wayne from Australia, the Animation and Rigging instructor around these parts.

I first discovered Blender in the early 2000s and was enthralled with the capabilities of this open-source software.  After a few years of messing about for fun and building my skills, I realized I had a real passion for character animation and rigging and turned my hobby into a career using Blender as well as teaching others how to use it.

I've had the privilege of working on some awesome projects as an animator and technical artist over the years.  This includes TV commercials, museum exhibits and a bunch of children's' content on YouTube that has collectively had billions of views.

(yes, billions!)

If you have a passion for animation and/or rigging, I will help you fuel that passion.
