Just letting you all know that we’re going to be exhibiting at SIGGRAPH this year. We’re sharing booths with Gnomon, booth #1113. This Gnomon/Ballistic booth will have lot’s of stuff happening - presentations, book signings, meet the artist sessions and more. All five of Ballistic book titles will be on sale: EXPOSE’ 2, EXPOSE’ 1, D’artiste: Digital Painting, ELEMENTAL and Machine Phase. Gnomon will have its entire DVD library there. We’ve got artists giving presentations round the clock, as well as book signings.
Tuesday (11 Aug) and Wednesday (12 Aug) at 2:30pm, d’artiste master artists Linda Bergkvist and Philip Straub will talk about digital painting and demonstrate their techniques to a live audience. SIGGRAPH attendees can also expect to see spontaneous demonstrations from these Master Artists at work for short periods throughout the expo.
Rock guitarist cum 3D artist and animator, Dean Fowler, will be talking about his visionary Machine Phase: Booby Trap, his new graphic novel.
Each day in the Expo at 10:30 Mark Snoswell, Daniel Wade and myself will give a presentation about the highlights of the three new Ballistic titles EXPOSÉ 2, d’artiste: Digital Painting and ELEMENTAL, and how to get your digital images into print.
The Ballistic booth at SIGGRAPH 2004 is set to be a buzzing hive of creativity where artists, fans, editors and industry greats collide. Make sure that you drop by to be inspired, chat to authors, artists, editors and other CGTalk members!
