Don’t normally share my art here but I’m super happy with my little Dragonborn, in his freshman Silverquill uniform, practicing his beginning Inkomancy.
My thoughtful brother in-law gifted me some vintage 1980’s Dungeons and Dragons metal figures. Their numbers aren’t even stamped into the bases, they’re hand carved! Now I have to figure out where I can find more information about them.
After 20 months and 83 sessions, my group ended our third D&D campaign. During that time, one member got his drivers license, I moved across the country, another sold the house he had built, and our DM became pregnant with her first child. It’s more than just a game.
I’ve spent over 40 hours drawing a poster to commemorate the conclusion of my D&D group’s year and a half campaign. It’s our DM’s first major campaign and she’s done a stellar job. I can’t wait to get the prints to them.😆
My first try at foam modeling. I made this bookshelf mountainside to display my D&D character minis on something more fun than clear acrylic boxes. Flocking is fun! Each of these minis are my past characters or hand-painted gifts from friends.
Learning how to turn foam into mountains because it’s a much cooler bookshelf display for my character minis than a clear box. I’ve made it to the black-wash stage. Dry brushing is next and then I can figure out where to put foliage.
Creativity begets creativity. It started with drawing my D&D characters, then I learned to paint their minis, and now it’s progressed to me carving places for them to live.
My office once held a multi-year D&D game that quickly became the most popular way to create community between teams. It brought more disparate people together than all the sports and drinking events ever did. Sadly, COVID abruptly ended it and my office is lesser for it.
All of my D&D characters get “trophies” so I spent the afternoon painting their minis. They’re a small accomplishment (literally) but it feels so good to be doing something creative again.
Drew and printed a new D&D character for a one-shot and then we ended up having some “craft time” before the game painting them onto wooden figures instead. It was a ton of fun.

When you’re on an adventure, you’re bound to encounter a secret code or two.

I recently used the character drawings my daughter and I collaborated on to make a poster for our D&D group.
