Who else wants to sell digital art to Steve Wozniak?

Do you want to generate the type of 3D digital artwork that would sell to a collector such as Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple inc?

Our lead interview in issue 2 of 3DAD Premium magazine is with Jacob Charles Dietz. One of his acheivements is the sale of his piece “Urban Angel” to the personal art collection of Steve Wozniak.

In our interview with Jacob, we find out some of his inspirations, techniques and also the beginnings of how he entered into the realms of digital art.
