Beeple, (aka Mike Winkelmann) is a motion designer in Wisconsin. He has a great collection of work on his vimeo page but what really sets him apart is his open source philosophy. If you visit his site you will find tons and tons of designs with project files included! He even has a project file from an Erykah Badu music video. Not only are these little files extremely cool but they are a great resource for learning new ways to use Cinema 4d. Mike is a super talented artist and is definitely someone worth watching.
I really like the idea of open source art. Which is something I plan on writing about in the near future.
