Welcome to the Museum of History & Magic, a digital space built by me, a passionate 3D artist with a love of folklore and museums. My name is Elijah Sheffield, and I am thrilled to introduce you to this project that has been years in the making.
This site is the culmination of a whole lot of planning and many late nights. Working alongside other talented artists like Myles Bolden and Brennan Puryear (to name just a couple of folks who have added to this with their dedication), we’ve been creating something truly meaningful and special. The initial work is done! The infrastructure is built. And now comes the onslaught of exhibits and engaging museum content. To be totally clear: this is not a one-off. This is an ever-growing and expanding concept that will usher in exhibits from all cultures, eras, and myths. We’ll keep you all up to date on our social media channels and will have community management set up soon also.
As you explore the museum's galleries, you’ll encounter many exhibits. Some exhibits will involve fanciful relics based on lore and legend, and others will be completely historically accurate representations. However, each is carefully crafted in a cozy stylized way to engage the viewer with a sense of familiarity and warmth. From ancient civilizations to modern marvels, the Museum of History & Magic will cover a vast array of topics, offering a comprehensive (and at times completely fabricated) overview of human and natural history.
Whether you are a history buff, an admirer of warm, happy art, or a 3D artist yourself looking to learn a few things, the Museum of History & Magic has something for everyone. So come explore with us and discover the wonders of the past in a whole new way.
Upcoming events worth noting:
The launch of our first stand-alone exhibit, ‘Legends of the West’ will go live April 4th
Community platforms will soon launch including Patreon, Discord, and Reddit
The first of many ‘Design & Build’ blogs, detailing specific construction techniques for the museum will be published this coming Monday (March 27). So if you have any interest in how I do this stuff, be sure to check that out
Thank you for being here. I’m so excited to see where this mess goes, and I appreciate your interest and support.
Sincerely, Elijah Sheffield Fake Curator, 3D Artist, Epic Lover
