Monster Manual 3

Wizards of the Coast just released their new edition of the Monster Manual 3.
Here is the work that I completed last winter for the book. I got to do four Monsters:
The Cave Fisher, Runic Gargoyle, Ghast, and the Old School Intellect Devourer.
There is more graphic version of the Ghast that was not approved but I like the illustration enough
that I will take it to a final and post it later on this blog.

Working with Wizards licensed characters is always interesting and Monsters are
always fun to do so hopefully I get to do more soon.

As of right now my June is slammed. I just completed a test shot for an undisclosed project that I think turned out well. The No More Blood teaser Poster is almost complete. I am working on a logo for a company called Irish Buddha. I am also in the process of completing my Dracula's Tomb image and revising a FFG Lovecraft card. When I make some head way on those projects then have to get into a new Kolchak Cover which I am looking forward to from a design sense. After that is complete I have to get all my last minute printing ready for San Diego Comic Con. Then in the fall I will be going back to school get my MFA. It will be excellent to have the opportunity to focus on a personal project for the next two years so I have alot to get ready for. Right now it's looking like it is going to be a very exciting and productive Summer and Fall.
