We are very happy to welcome next week Pablo Vazquez from Argentina, better known as VenomGFX, the master of insane colors and crazy animals! He will arrive tuesday and work here for at least three months as artist and animator on the Apricot game.

Pablo will replace Qareeb, who – for personal reasons – went back to Canada… we wish him all the best!

It’s half-true about bread and water through a hole in the doors. In fact as you can see in the pictures our main job in the Blender Institute is cooking 🙂 We have 4 meals per day and we enjoying full fridge of beer and watching Peach trailer on couch with pizza or popcorn.

If we are not enough, then we go outside together to cinema to watch Cg movies and after this eat pita with falafels.

Meanwhile when we have some free time (not too much) – we’re developing our game 🙂 Still we are in stage of implementing necessary stuff to get the game working.

Our colleagues from the Peach project have produced a video tour through the facilities (complete with Apricot team cameo!). Highly recommended.

pablo giving presentationThursday afternoon (06.03) Pablo gave a presentation on the Hogeschool van Amsterdam, department game design. There was a international workshop and conference on the art of effective communication through games for their students.

The students had to form project teams and would be supervised by game professionals (like Pablo) and visiting lecturers participating on the program and the conference. The games they made are presented at the project fair at the end of this International Week.

Download here the presentation of Pablo.
