We're getting more and more settled in and our air freight shipment arrived yesterday. Good news since a lot of my art supplies were in there along with my desktop computer. I've been busy sketching out concept art for Expeditious Retreat Press and Astonishing Swordsmen and Sorcerers of Hyperborea. I also picked up Delve! issue 2 last night to see what was left. Essentially I just need to finish off the section on quasi-lycanthropes and then go into layout (so good thing I got my desktop back). I think this weekend we might head for some of the filming locations from the Hobbit/LotR movies - but that depends on the weather. If not, we might head to Weta cave. Oh, and Daisey is putting her portfolio together for Weta's costume/set design team. I would LOVE it if she go on. It'd be great to get behind the scenes on Weta projects!

Yes, I'm still alive and kicking! I've been incredibly busy relocating Team Bingham and Ostensible Cat HQ from Italia to our new home base in New Zealand! We've been incredibly busy traversing the globe and for the past two and a half weeks - getting settled into our new home in Wellington. Lots of changes - new day job, new country, new continent (or microcontinent I suppose), new hemisphere, 12 hour time change, opposite season (it's winter here), and well, just about new everything. We're still settling in, but I feel that I'm now to the point where I can start re-emerging into the scene a bit. Found an art store so I stocked up on supplies. Now to seek out the local RPG scene (so glad they speak English, it'll make it easier for me to get my game on). I've got some commissioned work lined up and I'll get back to work on Delve! issue 2 - it exists! Also wanting to expand my operations a bit because I am no longer under the constraints that were imposed upon me in Europe. So, as I get settled and into my routine, I'm looking to doing things like offering original art, stickers, zines (of course) and other stuff on my Etsy site. More to follow gang, and it's good to be back!

It's been a while I know but yes, I'm still around. I've been focusing the bulk of my efforts on honing my technical skills tackling penguins and pythons rather than dragons and the like. It has been all consuming as I'm preparing for Team Bingham's next adventure. Lots of things in the works that have kept me from the drawing and gaming table. But in the end, it will be well worth it. At any rate, I just wanted to toss up a piece of art that I'd done not too long ago. It's been a while since I've painted and I'm pretty happy with this tribute to David Sutherland. I commissioned some art from Steve Zeizer for Delve II which I just have to get around to finishing it up. It is in the home stretch and I just need to finish off a bit about quasi-lycanthropes. Steve did some excellent work that really captured my vision. It was really fun to see someone else's take on my writing. Definitely bit of a switch up and I look forward to doing it again. Oh yeah, I forgot to say that I'm currently working on a ton of new art for several new projects. More to follow on that. Anyway, I hope everyone is well. Happy gaming!!

Merry Christmas, Yuletide greetings, happy Festivus... whatever you celebrate (or don't) I wish you the best this holiday season. As for me, it's been rather trying in terms of the day job. And the hunt has begun for the next adventure for Team Bingham (which will unfortunately require us to leave Italy - our home for the past 6 1/2 years) but we've got other plans in the works... At any rate, while I've been working at honing my tech skills for the job search, I've also been squeezing in some art time. Here's the latest that I did for Joe Browning over at Expeditious Retreat Press for an upcoming project.

OK, yeah, So I've been really busy slaving away at the day job and then staying up past my bed time trying to fit in some artwork ;). Actually these pieces are a few months old but still wanted to share them because they were a heck of a lot of fun to do, and it's almost Christmas and you need a new adventure for your group right? Here's the latest from one of my favorite companies, Expeditious Retreat Press and the OSRIC adventure Lost Lair of Drecallis!!

Well, well well, the cat came back. I've been busy with a lot of things lately and unfortunately that has precluded me from blogging. However, I just received my copy of the Adventures Dark and Deep bestiary by BRW game/Joseph Bloch. Man o man is it ever cool. And as usual, my art is the least of the coolness that is this book. If you haven't hear about it, then go here to find out more. At any rate, here's a peek at some of my art inside. I told you I was busy didn't I?
