I’ve been involved with Computer Graphics since the early 1980s, when I saw the film “Tron”. That film, as mediocre as it was, became a huge inspiration to me — I wanted to create cool graphics and even films using the computer. It took a long time to get the hardware that would enable this to happen, but that day is finally here, and Klanky the Robot is one of the things I wanted to create in CG form. I invented Klanky back in 1975, and created a 3ds max model of him in 1997.
I’m now working on a couple of animation projects with Klanky and his world, and hope to bring them to completion soon.
