Good News / Bad NewsPosted: January 14, 2012
The good news is that I have a new job working for a not-for-profit that helps young adults with literacy. Since reading has really enriched my own life, I welcome the chance to try to share my love of books with others. In addition, I have a number of art commissions keeping me busy in my free time.
The bad news is that this means that I will not be posting much to this site for the foreseeable future. Maybe that is ‘good news’ if you think the blog is stupid or lame (but, then, why you would read it remains a mystery). It is bad news for me because I enjoy writing the blog and reading other people’s stuff, but such is life.
One of the recent things I have been doing some artwork for is “The Barrowmaze” which is being authored by kiltedyaksman of Discourse and Dragons. This is a HUGE old school dungeon with custom monsters and many deadly encounter areas — the perfect place to test the mettle of your old school dungeoncrawlers. I don’t know if he has announced a release date yet, but it will be soon. As of right now, he has more than a dozen illustrations from me and a few other artists (including Toren Atkinson, Zhu, and Trevor Hammond, so I feel like I am in great company). Kiltedyaksman is going out of his way to make a nice product; I’m pleased to have been asked to participate. Here are a few sneak peeks at some of the artwork I provided:
