Kobold Magazine 10

Here is the cover to Kobold 10, coming out in just a few weeks. I figure it might be good to try and hype the magazine a little by previewing the cover--

I also did an interior illustration in the magazine for a clever article about Dwarves, drink and the Goddess of Ale.

I have few other things that I am doing for Kobold that I hope I will be able to show very soon--
I have just finished doing the cover and a few interior illustrations for Imperial Principalities of the Elders -- think memento morti, think the the triumph of death, the four horsemen of the apocalypse, think of a wrap around cover- think OMG! And I am currently working on the cover for "The Green Gods" this one is kind of tough in that the gods mentioned in the title are to be naked and featured prominently on the cover....... I really hate the old "leaves strategically place" thing, so I am not sure how I am going to stage this one. It looks as I will also be doing the cover to The Kobold Bestiary and a calendar piece as well..... these guys keep me busy.

Mist beyond the circle

It will be a while before this hits the printers but here is a little something I worked up for Black Gate magazine #14. It is an illustration for a story by Martin Owtin. It was a great read. The image will be printed in black and white, but I went all out on the image doing it as a full color painting. They will be using the color version of the image on the web site and in other web promotions. I'm doing a second illustration for the issue as well-- I'll share that with you soon.

Buckaroo Bonzai

This is the cover for the upcoming Buckaroo Bonzai Comic--HARDEST OF THE HARD, "The Ballad of Lady G"-- a little something I have been working on for Moonstone Books. I was thrilled with the idea of the doing the cover as a movie poster. I have always wanted to try my hand at doing a Drew Srtuzan like illustration and given the chance I went all out with the concept. Look for at soon in your local comic book stores.

I have signed on to do more covers for Moonstone, starting with covers for Honey West-- a hot, gutsy, kick ass, detective from the 1960's. Doing retro, film noir, action is a whole new kind of illustration for me and I am really looking forward to it....... should very be cool
