Jack Sachs’s 3D illustrations are the epitome of cool. Bright, shiny, and wobbly his illustrated characters are original as they are relevant, grabbing the attention of clients like Spotify, Google, MTV, and Converse.
So it comes as a surprise that the talented (and sought after) illustrator stumbled into 3D art by mere accident.
“I suffered a massive injury to my drawing hand before starting my final year at university, to confront this I began to learn to use 3D software to make my work while my hand healed,” writes Sachs on his personal website. “I now have two fully functioning hands and continue to make work across and around the two mediums.”
Talking about the result of his accident in an interview with wertn, Sachs said: “I wouldn’t have started doing it if that hasn’t happened. In the end, that’s a blessing honestly. I know it’s a bit cheesy but it changed my life! Because I really enjoy drawing and I like my drawings but I couldn’t have any commercial success with them, no client would use this for advertisement.”
“For me, it’s really fun to have 2 separate practices, they’re always informing the other. If I don’t want to draw, I’ll do some 3D stuff and the 3D will make me feel different about drawing, they’re always keeping the other one fresh and it keeps you from being bored,” he concluded.
