Goodman DCC Annual

sword collection

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…

Serpent Fight

p91 grey 72dpi.jpg

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).


Comics in stock at Goodman Games

MOT and Dagon

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…

Infernal Scrivener

One of the good things about having a scanner is that you can scan a version of something and then continue to work on it. I’m going to work on this one some more… and if I end up ruining it, I will at least still have this scan.

Monsters Attack

Been a while since I updated the blog, so here is another recent illustration. Look out! Monsters are on the attack!
