Time Show

Over the weekend the Time show curated by Patrick and Jeannie Wilshire at Haven Gallery opened. As I have mentioned here on the blog, I was asked to be part of the show and my Keeper of the Clocks piece from the Grand Bazaar of Ethra VanDalia was my submission. I could not attend the opening since it was happening many states away, but I was able to see lots of images online as well as several being sent to me. I am sharing some of those images here on the blog today so you can get a look at the great art that made up the Time show. Thanks to Haven Gallery and Chris Kotsakis for the images!

TIME Show - Opens Tomorrow!

Tomorrow night, May 19th, 2018, the TIME show opens at Haven Gallery. I first mentioned my involvement with the show a few weeks ago. The show is curated by Patrick and Jeannie Wilshire (the folks behind IX) and I am THRILLED to be a part of it. The show opens tomorrow and runs through June 23rd. While I will not be able to make it to the show I imagine there will be a lot of artists from the show on hand for the opening reception.

Blog Break

I will be stepping away from the blog for a week or two while I am adventuring elsewhere. Usually the monsters stay behind to run things while I am gone, but this time they said they wanted to come along. I will see you back here in mid May when I should have lots of fun things to share.

RAWR!

Warmachine - No Quarter 51

A couple of weeks ago I shared with you a book that featured some of my art that I was completely unaware of. Today I have for you another bit of published work that I was completely unaware of, this time it is in the form of a magazine. Back in 2013 one of my concepts from my time working on Warmachine miniature was shared in the 51st issue of No Quarter magazine. Not sure how this changes anything now... nearly 5 years later, but it is sure neat to see it now...

No Quarter 51
November 2013

Raluk Moorclaw, The Ironmonger concept hanging out as a preview

Finding my work in this magazine was way more easy then finding it in Dungeonology. I was always happy with this design, but it sure took a lot of work to finally finalize it. Even then it changed a little bit as it became a miniature, No matter what, in the end Raluk Moorclaw, The Ironmonger was a cool design and a fun miniature. Here is the full turnaround for this design...

Who know what other published work of mine is out there that I don't know about. There certainly some illegally published work of mine out there... but that is a story for another day.

That is all for another exciting Wednesday on the blog, see you back here on Friday! Until then...
