OVERVIEW

I have experience across the board within the 3d pipeline, but my area of expertise is definitely in 3d modeling and texturing. Samples of my personal 3d work can be found on my website brandonhix.com

MY BLOG

I am a Blender Foundation Certified Trainer and I have a blog where I teach called Blender Unleashed which specializes in bringing Blender training, assets, reviews, and inspiration to the Blender community. I am very proud of the reputation my training material has built and I look forward to serving the Blender community in many new ways moving forward.

MY BACKGROUND

After graduating with a B.S. from John Brown University in Digital Medial Arts and a minor in Computer Science I went on to start my career in the visual effects and motion graphics industry in Tulsa, OK. There I cut my teeth working on intellectual properties such as Hasbro's GI Joe, New Balance television spots, and Bushnell outdoor gear. I also had the opportunity to rub shoulders with some amazing talent and hone my production skills in both the Adobe and Autodesk software platforms.

Taking my chance at a new opportunity I then began working as a production artist in the promotional products industry and have spent the past several years expanding into new areas of design through industrialized printing, CAD manufacturing, and large format digital printing. This work has opened my eyes to the multi-faceted impact creative endeavors have on numerous service industries throughout the world. And I'm still learning.

My experience has allowed me the privilege to focus on some lifelong aspirations by launching my own business and redefining the boundaries of my imagination and my art through new design projects and the amazing opportunity to reach out to the upcoming generation and inspire them to go for their dreams.
