Star Wars & Toy Story Inspired 3D Artist

John Hoagland also known as Vanishingpoint is a CG artist from the US, who started making models in the 80s.

Will we use the power of our minds to get from point A to point B (teleportation?) or will we be utterly reliant on alternative energy? It’s hard to tell.
