I admit it: I'm a total geek. I love electronics, programming, 3D art, vintage Apple hardware, and whisky. I'm always juggling half a dozen projects. I also enjoy documenting it all: my successes, my failures, my experiences... and everything geeky along the way.

Geek Extraordinaire. Yeh, I said it.


This is one of those renders that I couldn't figure out where I was going with it. It's seen multiple revisions. It all stared out with another Ceridwen render and ended with a sexy bedroom scene. Read More...


I wasn't really planning this one, it just sort of happened. Read More...

Awake From Hypersleep

I really like the Ceridwen character. I love the way that my last render came out. The sci-fi / fantasy skin textures are awesome. However, I wanted to try another one with the default skin texture, but keep to the sci-fi genre. Read More...

On Deck

It's the first render of the new year. What do I have in mind? Not much really, just need to get the creative juices flowing. Read More...


With all the old renders out of the way, it was time to start something new. The creative juices are flowing, and I’m on a roll. (That, and with no electronics project in the works, what else am I going to do?) Read More...

Sun Kissed

This is the final render in a short series of old renders that I never had the time to finish..until now. I was so busy with other projects over the past few months that I got in the nasty habit of starting a new render without finishing the last. An idea would pop in my head and I’d start something new without finishing the old one. Read More...


I’ve been working on this one for a while. It’s been on the back burning for 3 months. I just couldn’t get the lighting right. Read More...

Do You Still Love Me?

I had a blast making my “Cyborg” and “You Gonna Stop Me?” renders. There were actually a few more experimental renders in the mix that I never finished. I figured since I was between projects, I’d revisit some older unfinished renders and see it I could make something out of them. Read More...


This render is nothing special. I was just bored. I haven’t done a lot with Victoria 7; mostly due to the lack of assets. Read More...

In My Mancave

A few years ago, I came up with a cool idea for a render. I wanted to create a scene that showed Michael painting some Victoria figurines. He’d be sitting at a desk, with some sort of display cabinet behind him that would be full of all his creations. That idea has been on the back burner for a while now, so it was time to play around with some ideas and see if I could bring it to life. Read More...
