Jason mostly makes stuff up. He writes, animates, and occasionally teaches, all using open source tools. He’s run a small, independent animation studio, wrote Blender For Dummies and GIMP Bible, and continues to blurt out his experiences during a [soon to be returning] weekly podcast, the Open Source Creative Podcast. He’s a Community Moderator on and writes a monthly Open Art column that discusses topics of interest to creatives who use open source software.
