Interests
Wow, been a while!

Getting a lot of questions about this line of drawings I've been posting: What's it for?  Is there a story behind it? Was Angela Lansbury really ever that sexy? The answer to all those questions can be answered by three words: "Thrilling Adventure Hour". It's simply one of the greatest podcasts ever. Serial adventures like "Sparks Nevada: Marshall on Mars" and "Colonel Tick-Tock" are performed in front of a live audience in the style of old-timey radio shows.  I listen to it all the time when I'm working, and it never fails to make me smile while pushing the pencil around. Also, the drawings have caught the notice of the show's creators, and may end up being part of a collaboration of sorts: stay tuned!

Give your ears a treat: thrillingadventurehour.com/ You'll be glad you did.

O is for Owlbear
Another illustration for my kid's book - The ABCs of RPGs! I mean, honestly - it's an owlbear and its... what do you call a baby owlbear? An owlcub? A bearlet? Well, it's one of those and it's fluffy and it's ADORABLE.

Q is for Questing
Another illustration for my kid's book - The ABCs of RPGs! In teaching little ones about the intricacies of roleplaying games, they have to come to terms with the fact that not everybody's going to get the awesome quest item, like a magic sword or armor or an enchanted cloak. Sometimes you get a rock. And that's okay.

H is for Hero
Another illustration for my kid's book - The ABCs of RPGs!

I was asked a number of times why I was bothering making a RPG-based book for kids - involving kids at all seemed to bewilder certain folks, which in turn bewildered me! Roleplaying games are simply playacting stories with rules that let you play with others - it's theater of the mind at it's simplest! Aren't children the source of all that fancy-free fantasy? Any way, here's a depiction of a hero-in-the-making, taking on obstacles far bigger than they, never looking back.

G is for Gamemaster
Another illustration for my kid's book - The ABCs of RPGs! This right here is what the game is all about - a bunch of friends sitting around a table, pizza on the way, refreshments at your elbows, jokes and dice being thrown around, and the gamemaster himself grumbling about the players ruining the story they've been planning for weeks. Good times!

D is for Dice
Another illustration for my kid's book - The ABCs of RPGs! I mean, if you're going to illustrate the mechanics of a roleplaying game, what would be better than to show what happens if you blow it (in a kid-friendly fashion, that is)? It's gonna happen sooner or later!
