Hercules Tablet Stand in the Times
 
Hercules_XIII_TimesInterior_tnOur Hercules XIII tablet stand was named one of the top 10 pieces at London Design Festival 2013 by the Times.

We just finished an exciting weekend at London Design Festival where I debuted my newest design – Hercules XIII, a universal tablet stand for work and play. Hercules, along with the lovely Venus of Cupertino, garnered many smiles and giggles of admiration over the four days. It was great fun seeing the public’s reaction, thanks to everyone who stopped by! more at Eaton.london

3d Artist cover, Scott EatonI am a little embarrassed by the attention but there is a seven page interview with me in Issue 54 of 3DArtist magazine.

I talk about art, design, visual effects and the importance of artistic fundamentals (drawing, anatomy) to the creative process. There is also a bit on ZBrush technique, 3d printing, and a peak inside one of my sketchbooks from War Horse.

Anyone who has been to EATON.london recently might have noticed that my Venus iPad Docking Station needs companionship. The good news is there are a couple new docking stations in the works, so she will have company soon.

Venus of Cupertino at the London Design Festival

The Venus of Cupertino, my iPad docking station, is just back from a busy week at the London Design Festival. She received countless oogles, smiles, and appreciation over the four days. She was even chosen as the top design at the festival by a prominent online design & lifestyle magazine.

Now that the Venus of Cupertino is almost all grown up, most future posts and updates on the Venus project will be found at: EATON.london There you can follow all the gossip, blogs, & tweets. And of course you can order her there as well!
