Here's the tribute painting I did for the Gary Gygax show that's being held at Titmouse Studios this coming Saturday! For those who don't know, Gary Gygax was the father of "Dungeons & Dragons", and without him, I wouldn't have created so much horrible fantasy art in high school. REALLY HORRIBLE fantasy art. Maybe I'll post some samples later... I was laughing at a lot of it when I was at my parents' house this past weekend. Anyways, one of my favorite monsters from D&D were Beholders, floating sphere monsters with eyes all over the place which shoot out death rays and freeze rays and all kinds of rays to screw up your party. Okay!!!

Here's a piece I did for the 2008 i am 8-bit retro video game art show! This was done using acrylics on masonite board. It's been a little over two years since I've used acrylics (digital painting has really spoiled me), but I was guiltedto go traditional by show curator Jon Gibson. After hitting a couple of brick walls, I think it turned out pretty okay!
