John "As the sole author and illustrator of the industry white paper designed to demystify the technical jargon associated with the 3D industry, knowing the UK industry I visited the United Arab Emirates to visit workshops meet craftsmen and Japan photographing the cherry blossom in spring for the illustrations, and meet the lead animator of Lord of the Rings, this lead to the second paper the software Matrix, testing a very wide range of software on the market from NASA to Japanese custom made, I was not the salesman's friend"
"the GOLDSMITHS' Company technical report on CAD Design has the Royal Charter that upholding the World Gold Standard printed in Gold on each and every page of the publication"
The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths, more commonly known as the Goldsmiths' Company, is one of the Twelve Great Livery Companies that founded the City of London and received its first Royal Charter in 1327 giving it the right to enforce good authority, to uphold the Silver and Gold standards, so powerful they founded GOLDSMITHS' art college for the poor and the Leopard ultimately helped bank roll the abolition of slavery when compensation was agreed to the slave owners which negatively effected the economy of the day fare more than any modern financial crisis.
