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: You'll be glad you did.

A is for Adventure
This past year has been an amazing one - I published my very first creator-owned book, The ABCs of RPGs! Lots of fun was had going back and forth between the writer, Ivan van Norman, who approached me after last year's Inktober and said that he, too, had wanted to do a children's book that bridged D&D to the young 'uns. This was the first illustration I did for it.

Everyone's sharing the gorgeous art they made for The Adventure Zone's fanart book The Adventure Zine! The PDFs are out - so here's mine! Much love for Leon the Gnomish Artificer and his marvelous Fantasy Gashopon Capsules! He puts up with so much crap - I identify with him on a spiritual level.
Frank Belknap Long's Chaugnar Faughn by calebcleveland
Frank Belknap Long's Chaugnar Faughn
“Words could not adequately convey the repulsiveness of the thing. It was endowed with a trunk and great, uneven ears, and two enormous tusks protruded from the comers of its mouth. But it was not an elephant. Indeed, its resemblance to an actual elephant was, at best, sporadic and superficial, despite certain unmistakable points of similarity. The ears were webbed and tentacled, the trunk terminated in a huge flaring disk at least a foot in diameter, and the tusks, which intertwined and interlocked at the base of the statue, were as translucent as rock crystal.”
Ramsay Campbell's Gla'aki by calebcleveland
Ramsay Campbell's Gla'aki
“From an oval body protruded countless thin, pointed spines of multicolored metal; at the more rounded end of the oval, a circular thick-lipped mouth formed the center of a spongy face, from which rose three yellow eyes on thin stalks. Around the underside of the body were many white pyramids, presumably used for locomotion. The diameter of the body must have been ten feet at its least wide… long stalks [were] twisting above it … [the] shape towered, pulsing and shaking with deafening vibration … a spine stiffened toward [a victim].”

I like your style. The pencil strokes are excelent and give a sketch, yet, detailed look to the art.

Keep it up! :thumbsup:
