TIME Show - Opens Tomorrow!

Tomorrow night, May 19th, 2018, the TIME show opens at Haven Gallery. I first mentioned my involvement with the show a few weeks ago. The show is curated by Patrick and Jeannie Wilshire (the folks behind IX) and I am THRILLED to be a part of it. The show opens tomorrow and runs through June 23rd. While I will not be able to make it to the show I imagine there will be a lot of artists from the show on hand for the opening reception.

TIME
May 19th - June 23rd, 2018

This will be the first time one on my large environmental pieces from The Grand Bazaar of Ethra VanDalia will be available. It is actually the first time any of the pieces associated with the project will be available since I have announced the project. If you are interested, I would suggest making your way to Haven Gallery!

Blog Break

I will be stepping away from the blog for a week or two while I am adventuring elsewhere. Usually the monsters stay behind to run things while I am gone, but this time they said they wanted to come along. I will see you back here in mid May when I should have lots of fun things to share.

RAWR!

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

Warmachine - No Quarter 51

A couple of weeks ago I shared with you a book that featured some of my art that I was completely unaware of. Today I have for you another bit of published work that I was completely unaware of, this time it is in the form of a magazine. Back in 2013 one of my concepts from my time working on Warmachine miniature was shared in the 51st issue of No Quarter magazine. Not sure how this changes anything now... nearly 5 years later, but it is sure neat to see it now...

Raluk Moorclaw, The Ironmonger concept hanging out as a preview

Finding my work in this magazine was way more easy then finding it in Dungeonology. I was always happy with this design, but it sure took a lot of work to finally finalize it. Even then it changed a little bit as it became a miniature, No matter what, in the end Raluk Moorclaw, The Ironmonger was a cool design and a fun miniature. Here is the full turnaround for this design...

Who know what other published work of mine is out there that I don't know about. There certainly some illegally published work of mine out there... but that is a story for another day.

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

TIME Show - Keeper of the Clocks

I am happy to announce that my recent piece, Keeper of the Clocks, will be appearing at Haven Gallery as part of the TIME show. In fact, Keeper of the Clocks is the featured piece as part of their promotion for the show! The show is curated by Patrick and Jeannie Wilshire (the folks behind IX) and I am THRILLED to be a part of it. The show opens May 19th and runs through June 23rd. While I will not be able to make it to the show I imagine there will be a lot of artists from the show on hand for the opening reception.

TIME
May 19th - June 23rd, 2018
155 Main St., Northport, NY

This will be the first time one of my big environmental pieces for The Grand Bazaar of Ethra VanDalia will be out in the wild and it will be available to purchase at the gallery. The rest of the pieces will remain on hold till the Kickstarter for the book, but this piece will be up for grabs as part of the TIME show. To do it justice, we got the piece done up in a nice new custom frame and I could not be happier with how it turned out. Also got it a nice new shipping box. Spared no expense to make sure the Keeper looked her best and made it safely to New York.

Keep of the Clocks - framed and ready for shipment

While I had planned this piece all along for my project I actually had to move it to the front of the queue so I could make the show deadline. Really glad it worked out this way since it gave me a little more pressure to get it done and I am really happy with how this one turned out.

Detail of the frame

If you are attending TIME, be sure to check out Marc Scheff's solo show, Depth Charge, which is also at Haven Gallery and run concurrent to TIME. I am sure it will be an amazing show with the quality of work Marc has been putting out lately.

In Memoriam, Andreas Knoll

This week I learned that Andreas Knoll passed away last September after a long battle with cancer. I knew Andreas as MetalSnail over on DeviantArt and it pains me have not known of his passing sooner. Andreas lived in Australia and I never met him in person and only chatted with him a handful of times on DA, but he seemed like a nice guy and I loved his art. He was constantly posting new drawings, paintings, and sculpture. I love his style and his art was just so fun and completely full of monsters. A couple years back Andreas was selling some of his sculptures at criminally low prices and I jumped at the opportunity to get one. I was happy to own one of his sculptures at the time and now I am even more grateful to have a piece of his work. Please take a moment to head over to DeviantArt and have a look at Andreas' work. He will be missed.
