Life is not linear. Despite our best efforts, our paths more often than not take turns for the unexpected. Polish CG generalist Artur Tamiola, our September 2020 ‘3D Artist of the Month’, was thrown into cold water when he landed an industry job mere weeks after installing his first 3D software and has been on a journey of self-improvement ever since. Recently, he has discovered the world of architectural visualization as a resourceful playing ground, with his take on a ‘Scandinavian Interior’ marking a temporary high point.
In our interview, Artur talks career struggles, the importance of connecting with others, sleep deprivation and plastic balls.

“Beep boop. Greetings, humans, this is OrbyBot speaking. I’m thrilled to be featured alongside my creator Patrick Schürfeld on this month’s ArtWanted! spotlight. An experienced designer and filmmaker, Patrick used his vast knowledge of 3D tools to bring me to life, and produced a short animation all by himself. In the recently released ‘Snowbot 21’, I take on a snowy downhill ride as a daring mountain sledder!
Please check out the interview to learn more about our adventures. End of transmission.”
