The Creative Spark: Beeple, Everyday Artist
Video duration: 0s 43m 43s Appropriate for all


Every day Mike Winkelmann, aka Beeple, sits down to a blank canvas on his PC, whether in CINEMA 4D, ZBrush, After Effects, or any number of digital tools, and explores the limits of his imagination. His Everyday Project, where new art is a daily routine, is now in its sixth year, and he is constantly learning new software, adopting new techniques, and being pushed by the limits he creates for himself. But he's also driven to create things that other people might find useful. Beeple's art is released under a Creative Commons license, which allows others to download, use, and rework his original digital files.

Follow Beeple in this installment of The Creative Spark, as he creates his 2,090th Everyday and shares what he has learned over the years with this project. In the Extended Features, Beeple breaks down his projects and reveals the techniques behind his popular series of VJ clips—free short, animated, abstract visuals for VJs and creative professionals.

(MUSIC). About six years ago, I started doing everyday project. At the end of the year I'd noticed that I had gotten a lot better. I realized obviously this is a, a very good way to learn a bunch of different things, so I've been doing it ever since. It helps me focus on just getting a little bit better each day. (MUSIC). Each year I sort of have a focus and I use that program in at least part of the process.

This one actually got started as a everyday and I realized that if I moved the camera around and animated some of the things in the project, that it could be, a decent looking DJ clip. I'm trying to make something that I like, but the underlying goal is to learn. Is to get better at something. The actual end result is sort of a bi-product of that process.
