Portent (Commander 2018) Artist Proofs NOW AVAILABLE!

Artist proofs of my Commander 2018 card, Portent, are NOW AVAILABLE on my store! If you are interested in the Portent artist proofs, now is the time to act! I am a *LITTLE* behind in posting this, but better late than never. All of my artist proofs come signed and numbered, and the standard APs are limited to 50. As always, there is an option to just buy the artist proof or to get a unique, one of a kind sketch on the back of the card.

I first shared this piece with you in July of last year. As I said, I am a little behind in getting these up with my current busy schedule. I hope to have prints available very soon as well! Keep an eye out on the blog for details! Here again is the full final art of this card...

Star Wars Allies and Adversaries Preview

It is a strange feeling when you haven't worked with a client in a couple of years, and you take a look at a new book they are releasing, and the sample spread features not one, but two pieces of your art...

Two pages of hot alien action!

Later this year Fantasy Flight Games will be releasing the Allies and Adversaries supplement for the Star Wars RPG. It looks to be a collection of NPCs and their stats. Can't tell for sure, but it appears to be a collection of existing art all compiled into a new book, though I would imagine there is original art also. If asked, I would have been reasonably confident that some of my work will be in the book. As we can see from the image above I am most definitely in the book. These two are likely not the only pieces of my work appearing in the book. It should be interesting to see how many and which illustrations end up in the book. I guess the folks at FFG liked the looks of my work enough to feature it as the sample, which is really cool, to say the least. My Star Wars legacy lives on even to this day...

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

Instagram Palette?

I have been noticing people posting their Instagram palettes, and it got me curious. Why are people posting their Instagram palettes? Still, have not figured it out, but I went and got my own Instagram palette. Not really sure how far back it goes to pull colors, but from the looks of mine, it is mainly pulling from all my toned paper work from the last couple of years. I guess it is pretty neat, though it is out of context for me. For those interested, here is my Instagram color palette...

BEHOLD! My Instagram palette!

And, by the way, if you did not already know, I have an Instagram page you can follow!

I did want to mention I plan on posting a 2018 year in review post. Things are a little crazy right now, and I am doing all I can to make sure it gets written in a timely manner. Sometimes hard to stop writing the book so that I can write about me writing on the book. More on this soon!

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

See You at Gen Con 2019!

I am happy to announce that I have been accepted into the 2019 Gen Con Art Show this coming August 1-4! From what I was told it was another very tough year to make it through the selection process. I love attending Gen Con and I am already looking forward to returning. Speaking of returning, this will be my 9th time in the art show! Each year gets better and better, and while it will be hard to top the last couple of years it will definitely be a lot of fun.

Gen Con 2018

Once Gen Con is a bit closer I will share with you more details, but for now I am focused on being ready for Pensacon on February 22-24. I hope to see you at one, or both of these shows!

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