    Catharina Potgieter Low Poly Philosopher

    A super-power was bestowed upon Cat the day she stood a little too close to an open computer. A few verts jumped out and entangled themselves with her neurons and now she will not stop until her magic moulds the world into something better.

Have an idea?
