rant, unpopular opinion, blender 

I'm a big fan of #Blender, I've been a user for so many years. I've seen it evolve from NaN to this immensely popular and community supported project.

But it (still) has huge issues in terms of community. And their list of speakers for #BConf19 shows it pretty badly: conference.blender.org/2019/sp

#BConf, instead of growing in numbers, could you focus on growing diversity? Thank you.

@xuv Wow. That's an awful lot of white men.

@kerriaWearsBlack Yeah. It's a shame. Really.

@xuv any (non-men and/or non-white) artists you'd recommend following?

@kerriaWearsBlack Specifically related to Blender? Or else?

@xuv yeah sorry, I meant 3d artists, if they use blender even better!

@kerriaWearsBlack That's a very good question. I don't follow particular 3D artists. But if I come up with a name, I'll be sure to pass it along here.

Follow

@kerriaWearsBlack btw, not 3d artists but good for inspiration, this directory of womenwhodraw.com/ is worth checking.
