Recently, I had the pleasure of working with Jeff Laubenstein on the cover art for “Questors”, an upcoming sourcebook for the Earthdawn Roleplaying Game!

The cover was just shared with fans of the game and I am pleased to follow suit!

Many thanks to Jeff for the opportunity to work with him on a beautiful game. :)

Here’s a link to the blog post showing previews from upcoming game titles.

The painting will be with me on display in the Gencon Art Show in August.

I hope to see you there!

Enjoy!

My work on The One Ring: Rivendell is live!

Rivendell, The latest book to hit the virtual store shelves for The One Ring Roleplaying Game from Cubicle 7, is now available for pre-order!

This means I get to share my work on the book today.

Make sure to check out the book!  Rivendell and its environs are amazing places to visit.

It was a real treat to visit Middle Earth, once again, with paper and acrylics under my arm.

Equally exciting is that my work appears alongside that of my friends, Jon Hodgson and Jan Pospisil. :)

I hope you enjoy my latest images.

Thank you for stopping by!

All artwork is available for purchase.

The Diner–comic short story

Today I get to share a four page story I illustrated back in 2011 for writer extraordinaire, Ron Fortier.

Ron is well-known in comics circles as the writer of many popular titles including, “Terminator: The Burning Earth”–some of Alex Ross’ first published comics work.

Not to mention his revival of The Green Hornet, Captain Hazzard, and other pulp fiction heroes of yesteryear!

I was jazzed to get to work with Ron and he has graciously allowed me to share our efforts on my blog.

This was the first story to appear in issue 1 of ”Ron Fortier’s Tales of the Macabre” from Redbud Studio Comics!

I’m so happy to be able to share it here today.

It was lettered by none other than Jaymes Reed of Digital Caps Comic Book Lettering.

It was exciting to work with such talented professionals.

I lead a blessed life. :)

Enjoy the story!
