Fish Frog Scribbles & OVER 1100!

Times flies when you are having fun... or working a LOT. Tomorrow is a food and family holiday in America so I have a low key post today. Usually today would be a post focusing on the process of a past painting, but I have a full plate and like I said, tomorrow is a holiday.

First point of interest is that last Friday's post of the blog was my 1100th post of this blog. Some might think that is cool, others may not care. I think it is pretty neat. Slowly but surely the number ticks higher and higher as the blog continues on and on. RAWR!

Not to leave you without a monster on the blog today here is a little something that came to life between all the other things that have been going on. There was a VERY small slice of time between my RAWR! show at 621 Gallery going up and before an assignment came in that allowed me to have some fun with a pencil. With all my assignments and projects I have had to create specific work for lately, I have not been able to just have some 'me' time with my art. To that end here is a little Fish Frog that happened in the brief down time I had lately...

Spectator - Beholder-kin miniature

Rage of Demons, the newest expansion on miniatures for Dungeons & Dragons is out and one of the miniatures is based on a redesign for 5th Edition. The miniature in questions is none other then the wily Spectator, or Gauth when I was redesigning it. Here is how the final miniature turned out...

The Spectator was one of my favorites to redesign. I nailed the new concept on the first pass of sketches and it was a lot of fun to work on. I am thrilled to see that it has been turned into a miniature! For those interested, here is my original concept for the Spectator...

The miniature also pulls from the GREAT illustration that Kieran Yanner did of it for the 5th Edition Monster Manual. He did a tremendous job breathing life into my design and I am glad to see that the miniature reflects what he brought to the Spectator. Here is a look at the rest of the Spectator miniature...

621 Gallery Artist Talk and Happy Hour Recap

Last night was the 621 Gallery Artist Talk and Happy Hour for the three exhibiting artists. It was a dark and rainy Thursday night in Tallahassee and the opening reception was SUPER AMAZING so I am not necessarily surprised that there was a less then robust turnout. Of the three exhibiting artists, there were only two of us in attendance. Include my wife and the two actual people that showed up to look at the art and talk to the artists, there were five of us at the event. I am told that this was NOT the worse turnout on record, so that is something. Two other random folks passed through but did not stick around. It was still a fun evening and I actually did talk a lot about my work with those there. There were snacks and drinks so I can not complain! Here are a couple images from the 621 Gallery Artist Talk and Happy Hour...

Can not contain the crowds, call for back up!

Close up of my Bugbear redesign.
This was the second drawing created of my D&D redesign project but it was the first piece I shared on my blog for the project. RAWR!

My wife had to take break from the crowds in the middle of the room.

Thanks to everyone that came out last night in all their blurriness.

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

Artist Talk and Happy Hour at 621 Gallery - TOMORROW NIGHT!

If you like monster art AND you like to hear people talking about monster art then I know a great event for you! Tomorrow, Thursday November 19th, I will be part of this month's Artist Talk and Happy Hour event at 621 Gallery in Tallahassee. The event runs from 5-7pm with the artist talking about their work starting at 6pm. I will be joined by the other two exhibiting artists in the main gallery and it should be a lot of fun! Hope to see you out there!

Here are some new images of my RAWR! show... yes, they are similar to images already shared, but these are all new and different...

621 Gallery in Tallahassee, Fl. Hope to see you there!

The first 100 of my personal project to redesign and illustrate all the monsters in the original Dungeons & Dragons Monster Manual.

Miniature madness with 27 monster miniature turnaround designs.

Loads of people trying to look interested while being near monsters.

All the details for the show again in one handy dandy image!

Lights, Camera, RAWR!

On Friday I had the great pleasure to be interviewed by Brian Stillman for his upcoming documentary about the art and artist of Dungeons & Dragons. It was a really long and really fun day in front of the camera talking about art, monsters, and D&D. We filmed in my studio, 621 Gallery where my work currently hangs, and the swamps of north Florida. A super fun time all around. To conclude the days filming I created a D&D related sketch on camera to be hopefully used in the finished film. I of course had to draw a Beholder...

Brain and his partners are just starting out on this new project so we will all have to be patient in waiting for the finished film, but I am sure the wait will be worth it. I am a huge of Brain's previous film, Plastic Galaxy, so I have the utmost confidence in the his new project. I will be sure to keep you all up to date on all the news and events of this film. Let's hope I said something useful and that I will not be edited out! RAWR!
