Wizards of the Coast, Dungeons And Dragons and Forgotten Realms

My work for Dungeons and Dragons Forgotten Realms line must be my most seen, while never providing the freedom creatively that the Palladium Books work, still was and continues to be a place where I can show off my loveof classic techniques and picturemaking. All images below copyright Wizards of the Coast.

Palladium Books

Palladium books was instrumental in starting my carreer, providing steady work in my early years allowing me to develop my craft and my dicipline, and a fertile playground in which my ideas could grow largely unfettered by editorial constraints- More often then not, the game texts were written to fit the art I felt like turning in, rather then vice versa. The only drawback was that the work was done for hire, which means all these images are copyright to Palladium books and my friend Kevin Siembieda.

From Beyond!

In Lovecraft's story, a scientist demonstrates to the protagonist his devise which allows one to see beyond reality to the horrors beneath the surface. More therapy for me, unstructured imaginigs.

The Children of Cthulhu 2

This one became the montage that I probably originally intended the below image to be before it turned into a solid illustration instead. Begun in 2007 in NY, this one traveled across the world with me twice, to Bariloche then to San Diego where I completed it in paint in 2009. Had a great time with this, free flowing therapy for all those months drawing comic pages.
