We have a busy day here at the Prim Perfect Pavilion on Home Expo 13 with two Meet the Designer talks with a variety of people participating! First, at 2pm, we have Jessii2009 Warrhol and Guarocuya Giano of Nexgen Aviation and the Flying Tigers, who will be talking to Elrik Merlin, and at 6pm we have Sandi Glas of Glas Houses and Heath Pevensey and Rory Larnia of beach street homes and gardens.
The Flying Tigers are one of the most intrepid – and largest – flying groups in Second Life. Their amazing planes and re-creations of combat in aircraft from the Second World War are matched only by the astonishing story of the original Flying Tigers in real life. Nexgen Aviation create many of those planes, and it’s certain to lead to a fascinating discussion! You can also see more about the Flying Tigers on a recent Designing Worlds show.
Sandi Glas, of Glas Houses, creates affordable low prim, stylishly crafted, prefab homes and custom builds, which range from cozy beach cottages to open-plan styles inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright – she won the former Frank Lloyd Wright Virtual Museum’s building competition on several occasions! She’ll be talking about her own work, and also the future of building in Second Life. And we’ll also be joined by Heath Pevensey and Rory Larnia of beach street homes and gardens, two child avatars who arun two of the best known business in the family roleplay arena – Larnia Kidsand, of course, beach street homes and gardens. They’ll be talking about their store and about their work as designers.
We have a very full programme of Designers appearing at our Pavilion over the ten days of the Expo, every day at 2pm and 4pm (with a couple of talks at 12 noon and 4.30 pm. You’ll be able to see the full schedule, and details of the other events we are planning (including the peace lantern release and the Blue Willow mini-hunt), on this blog shortly.
