Art of Illusion
Peter became interested in 3D graphics after taking a class on computer graphics during graduate school. Frustrated by the state of user interfaces in 3D modeling tools available at the time, he decided to write his own modeling software.
Art of Illusion, the result of his efforts, now averages 200-300 downloads per day.
