Speaking of Kobold Quarterly

,,, here is a peek at the cover for their fall issue. I suppose I shouldn't give away too much, but issue is going to be packed full of cool stuff for Pathfinders Jade Regent series. So you wont want to miss it. As for the Golden dragon illustration-- Most of the time I find that asian dragons seem too cartoonish and almost comical in their depiction and I was really excited to try and bring one to life in a way that captured them in a more living realistic way. Any one that knows my  intrepid boarder collie Lilly, might instantly recognize her influence on the piece.

Happy anniversary Kobold Quarterly

So its the 5th anniversary of my friends over at Kobold Quarterly open design and they thought it would be fun to get various artist to do new interpretations of there mascot Jiro (a small lovable Kobold). These guys have been great to me and I jumped at the chance. I decided to have a little fun and take a little poke at  fantasy art where often sex appeal is more important then practicality.

Alien vs Predator

This is sort of a different kind of image for me. I was talking to Randy Stradley about doing some cover work for Dark Horse comics and it occurred to me that I had very little stuff in my portfolio that demonstrated how I would handle Dark Horse titles, so I whipped up this little piece for them.

So for those that don't want to wade through my blog and want to get straight to the images, this is the place to go. Though come back here to see my latest stuff. I've got lots of new and cool stuff to share

blog physics

A blog is a pretty useless thing if you never up date it. I mean that is kind of the point right? to let people see what your up to, to share you're art. Well, it seems that I have been a bit negligent on that front. Not sure what happened, seems that the second law of thermodynamics kind got a hold of me or something.........well now it's time to apply the first law of inertia and get things going again. Time for a little push.

let start big. I mean really big

The above piece is a little something done for the folks over at Cubicle 7 Entertainment. This epic battle of good and evil was done for the dungeon master screen for Legends of Anglerre.
