As we reported in November, Lorne judged submissions to NVIDIA’s and CGSociety’s inaugural NVArt digital art challenge, ‘Amazing Creations’. He was present at the unveiling of the winning pieces at the San Jose Museum of Art on 1 February where he discussed his perspectives on art.

However, since we reported it in October, Lorne’s talk “But wait, there’s more…!” Lessons learned in creating & selling original IP has been dropped from the D.I.C.E. Summit schedule.

Veteran media industry executive Jim Banister has written on his blog about spark marketing versus traditional marketing, drawing on an analogy of Lorne Lanning’s.
