Pretty sure the blackout period has expired on these early studies of breaking CG glass in Strata 3D. Stumbled over these and felt like sharing. A little too "computer generated" for today, but I think they have great energy and light.

Expanding on the work for Rick Smolan's "The Human Face of Big Data" here's a little experiment combining 3D scanning, real time rendering and immersive, interactive VR that works in any browser... yes even on the picky iPad.

Just got back from Chicago and two days and two nights of meeting some new and some familiar faces... art buyers, creative directors and photographers, too.

It's always a thrill seeing cool creative spaces and getting to present and talk about the work face to face, away from the screen and email. For the occasion I created an iBook of the portfolio that incoporates our motion work as well, where the animations and videos pop right off the corresponding printed page. I have to say, the iBook has been the perfect medium between book and reel and something that I was waiting for since neither a book nor a video shows the integration between print and motion. To get your own copy, make sure you have Apple's iBook App first. Then download the Raygun book for the iPhone or the HiFi version for the iPad and view it in iBook. Please be patient, the iPad file is slightly north of 100MB with all the motion in it.

I really like the people of Chicago. There is so much creativity, great architecture and art there, yet people are very modest and down to earth. And then there's this winter I heard so much about, but it did not seem to materialize... guess we brought a little California sunshine along. Michigan Avenue has a lot of really cool store windows and even though it's just past Halloween, there it feels like it's Christmas already...

Developing this steel Gargoyle character while putting the new 3D VR rendering through the paces. Take it for a spin here. Works everywhere now, even on iPhones and iPads. Come to think of it... swipe gestures and VR seem to be made for each other.

Heading to Chicago this week for show and tell at the OneOnOne portfolio show Wednesday and Thursday nights at Draft FCB and connecting with creatives from the windy City. Chicago has been my top City this year with most of the work coming from out of there for some reason. Maybe it's because my daughter is studying architecture there at IIT and has gotten the word out about Raygun? In any case, went ahead and created our first iPad iBook portfolio for the occasion which incorporates motion seamlessly. It looks pretty amazing on the new iPad, at least IMHO. You can download the short version here and the full version here.

Pop me an email or give me a call if you're in Chicago town Wednesday through Friday and would like to meet for a cup of coffee or a beer and see the new work in person.
