May DAY and a promise ..

It's MAY the 1st and I thought it apt, now my internet is working again [laf] to keep a promise. Well, two actually, one to Joe and Paul, and one to myself.

The one to myself is an easy post on a holiday.

The other is Joe and Paul when I told them I'd find some artwork of Wardancers from White Dwarf [I think it's issues 111 & 112] and then finish with a couple of ye olden bits and one new bit.

But lets start with two old pieces, but for which issue I cannot remember ...

Now for some Wardancers, in no particular order in terms of when published.

Finally, a new piece. This is my first draw of a BUGBEAR for a private commission, based on the original traditional description. There are two versions; this is not the cuddly one.
That, that's all folks!

As it was someone's birthday [not mine]

 The Soul Keeper ...

As it was someone's birthday [not mine] I thought it appropriate to add a few pictures some old some much newer. First from Tinman Games' version of the Warlock of Firetop Mountain some new art.

Next from different sources

These I've posted before ... and come from the Magazine Anduril 6: Magazine of Fantasy published in the 70's.

Now for some more from Goodman Games ... and others

From The Silver Path by Caitlin Spice's new book.

A couple of personal pieces ...



 For the group BLACKBIRD RAUM and the album FALSE WEAVERS [This can be found on YOUTUBE] if interested.

Plus Map

Finally the picture I redrew showing the Wild Man, originally from The Warlock of ... 

Till the next time, or somebodies birthday ....

Something from the past

I'll be honest, two things are apparent [for those who haven't noticed ... I cringe]; first, it's been a while since my last post and second, I haven't 'replied' to some comments that were left. My apologies.

To answer the second first ... the option to allow me to respond appears to be 'gone' and I'm not clever enough in that respect to figure out why. Simply know, I have read them all and would always welcome more. Hopefully this time around I can reply to anything left in response to this post ... except Spam [grrrr].

I wrote in 2015 that it had "been a Annus horribilis of a year health wise, and although my arm, my best arm, is still crook I felt it right to do something before year's end and silence the silence." So I started 2016 with higher hopes not realising that it would prove, as far as my health was concerned, an even worse year as it progressed. I'm not going to talk about it as such, suffice to 'say' I'm having treatment and fingers crossed all will be good this Summer coming.

But the treatment has had one side effect, my energy levels are abysmal and I find I can only function for a few hours without wanting to fall asleep [laf], that said, I have been working.

So here are few bits to look at and if any are "repeats", my apologies.

This is my Happy New year to you all...


I expect some you'll recognise, and maybe some you'll not, it's a really medley from the past and the present and I hope you'll enjoy. 

OH, ok, a few more to make up for the 'lost' posts of 2016.

So there it is, from a magazine of old to one brand new, from White Dwarf, with a nod to Durer,  [a true hero of mine] and the ukiyo-e woodblock artists, to the Fabled Lands ... till next year, but don't expect it 'tomorrow'.

But I have one thing to add ... expect more news this Summer, lots in the works health permitting. Cheers!
