Woven Egg - The Grand Bazaar of Ethra VanDalia

I have for you a new piece from The Grand Bazaar of Ethra VanDalia! Today's monster is the mysterious Woven Egg. Long have beings wondered just how the Woven Shaper makes its bizarre and wondrous creations. While a handful have actually seen on, the rumors of the Woven Eggs has circulated the Bazaar for ages. Shaper cares for its Eggs with loving care, doing its best to keep them secret. Heed a word of advice, do not let curiosity get the best of you, do not try to see an Egg with your own eyes.

If you would like read the thoughts of 
Agatha Luculent Habile, Acolyte of the Impure Husk, regarding this monster then head on over the The Grand Bazaar of Ethra VanDaila blog!

It is always a little ego bump when my personal work is selected over client work. In the end, you never really know what will be selected. Here is a link to view everything that I submitted for consideration in IBA6. Congrats to everyone that made it in and a huge thanks to the jury and to Bill Cox for all his work in making IBA a reality. I can't wait to see the completed book first hand!

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

See You at Illuxcon 2018!

I am happy to announce that I will be returning to the Illuxcon Showcase this coming October 19-20! Illuxcon runs October 17-21 and as in previous years the Showcase takes place Friday and Saturday nights. I love IX and it is always great to be a part of the fun, learning, and crazy amazing art. Each year is a little different and each year is better than the previous. Since I am still very much in the middle of working on The Grand Bazaar of Ethra VanDalia I won't necessarily have a lot of new work to share, so the Showcase is the perfect place for me this year.

Illuxcon Showcase 2017

Once Illuxcon is a bit closer I will share with you more details, but for now I am focused on being ready for Pensacon on Febuary 23-25. I hope to see you at an event this year!

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

Rapacious Guttersnipe - The Grand Bazaar of Ethra VanDalia

I have for you a new piece from The Grand Bazaar of Ethra VanDalia! Today's monster is the vile Rapacious Guttersnipe. Many horrors bubble up from the labyrinthine depths below the Bazaar and one of the most dangerous is the dreaded Rapacious Guttersnipe. Not exactly flesh and next exactly mineral, these monsters are hard to kill even for the greatest of slayers. Whip like tentacles with a suffocating grip and jagged sharp bodies these monsters are the one of the reasons Ethra keeps the Aberrant Stilters around. If you find yourself in a dark alley face to face with a Rapacious Guttersnipe pray that you are with companions and that you can out run them.

Silas Illywacker - Student of Enlightenment, regarding this monster then head on over the The Grand Bazaar of Ethra VanDaila blog!
