Sometimes you get these long and skinny spaces to work with and you have to do the best you can with them. Here we have religious fanatics lamenting something or another.
WIP for a new project — this is my version of “The Battle of Alghieri” by Leonardo DaVinci. I suppose copping DaVinci seems presumptuous… but I was really into DaVinci’s drawing of this scene when I was growing up and then I discovered there are dozens of different versions by many different artists of this same painting. Haven’t quite figured out some of the things… and I took some liberties. Horses are really hard to draw.
Another recent work for Goodman Games.
Insert joke about Kathy Griffin here.
Recent work for Goodman Games.
Years ago I did 8 drawings of fantastic and fantasy swords for Goodman Games for a project they called “The Annual.” I had a lot of fun drawing these; here are a few of my favorites from that series. The “Annual,” however, failed to come out years after year and became a running joke… “This time we are serious… it comes out this year… no, next year, no, sorry, the year after that,” and so on.
Well, supposedly the wait is over. Goodman has just announced the Annual is finally coming out so these drawings of swords (along with some other illustrations) will finally see the light of day. Check out the Kickstarter. I’m writing this on day 2 and it’s already 150% funded… so I guess everyone else out there on the internet is as ready to see this thing in print as I am…
Another recent pen and ink work for Goodman Games. This one is intended as a nod towards the memory of Greg Stafford (1948 – 2018), founder of Chaosium publishing and a writer, shaman, designer and creative genius. The woman in the coils of the snake is based on the woman on the cover of Chaosium’s Runequest book… drawn from memory (I think I did pretty well).
My “Mother of Toads” comic and “Dagon” comic are both now in stock at Goodman Games’ online shop. I’m still busy with other projects and thinking hard about which classic tale to do next — I have a couple of stories in mind and hope to eventually do all of them, but currently it is a toss up between Ambrose Bierce, Robert Chambers and William Hope Hodgson. Poe might be in that race as well…
