Yesterday, Annie wanted us to have Halloween masks. I took a 9×12 sheet of bristol, painted on it with a brush pen, cut eye holes, etc., and viola, masks. This one (for Annie) was my favorite. The mask has creative possibilities I may have to revisit in the future.
This morning, Harley Stroh pointed out that Joe Goodman shared some of the sketches he and I have been passing back and forth about the new interior illustrations for the 4th Printing DCC book kickstarter. The sketches in there are just pencils, but they hint at what is to come. I can’t reveal too much, but there is more to come; stay tuned!
James M. has been producing a magazine for M.A.R Barker’s Tekumel called “The Excellent Traveling Volume” and has asked me to provide a few illustrations. One of them presented an interesting problem: how do you draw a creature that is ‘made of light’? The answer turned out to be to draw everything around it and just leave the paper blank.
The dude in the front in the marching band type hat isn’t the subject of the picture; he’s just there to show you how fucking bright the ball of light is. The hat is, admittedly, bizarre… but that’s how they roll on Tekumel.

I guess Goodman Games is almost sold out of DCC Rule books, because Joe has announced that they are going to print it AGAIN! This reprint includes everything from the original, plus a few edits for typos, a new sample adventure and some other details and stretch goals, including variant covers, a super-deluxe silver foil leather cover, etc. Get the details on the link above.
I’m currently slaving away on drawings for the 4th edition… we are shoehorning MORE art into this already profusely illustrated tome!
Peter Mullen did one of the new variant covers which I am really enjoying:
