Starting in 2007, Mr Mike Winkelmann started making a drawing every day for a year, as he puts it:
Get better indeed. At the end of each day, he posted these drawings online. As you can expect, not every piece was a masterpiece, but it's amazing to flip through the months and see the changes in style and improvements in techniques.to help me get better at different things.
After that first year, he moved on to the style that made him famous, Cinema 4D, this time focussing on modeling and making a render every day (!). How's that for dedication?
Since then he has moved back and forth between styles, including photography, vector art and of course more C4D.
Of course it was only a matter of time until this hard work would see the light of day as full motion renders as well. A seemingly never-ending source of jaw dropping abstract goodness, all of his work is downloadable via his Vimeo page, often including the C4D source files as well.
Some of his work is now released on the awesome Brainfeeder label, and if you were lucky enough to catch the Flying Lotus/Strangeloop/Timeboy extravaganza 'layer 3', you saw some if his work there as well.
In short, this guy is cool as beans...
