So, the panel teasers that I was milking in my most recent posts will have to remain a mystery for the time being. That book is still my top priority right now, but the pub date has been pushed back significantly altering the marketing for the book in ways that I’m not fully aware of at the moment. This gives me the opportunity to shift the focus of my blog toward a project from last year that I’ve been sitting on while the pieces fall into place. Namely, 13 True Ways, the expansion book to 13th Age! I’ve developed many new illustrations for the project with the artful direction of Rob Heinsoo and Lee Moyer, and Lee stepped in to give life to many of my rough sketches when the deadline crept up on me and collided with what I thought was the deadline for the graphic novel I was also drawing.
Point being, I’ve watched the stats of this blog slant toward my fantasy illustration as the popularity of 13th Age has grown since its release last year. I appreciate the interest and I’m overdue in rewarding the readers who visit my site in search of inspiration for their 13th Age campaigns. For now I’ll be posting things that have been released online here or there, but slightly reformatted to accentuate crunchy details. Ever the process junkie, please bear with me as I revive some material you may have encountered elsewhere.

The Gettysburg Address: A Graphic Adaptation sat in my pile for too long, and it shouldn’t have. I loved The United States Constitution: A Graphic Adaptation, the previous effort by Jonathan Hennessey and Aaron McConnell, so I should have anticipated how good this new one would be.”
Some folks are just getting around to reading The Gettysburg Address: A Graphic Adaptation, like author/critic Cory Doctorow. Here’s his thoughtful review of the book: http://boingboing.net/2014/04/04/the-gettysburg-address-a-grap.html#more-295886

The first teaser to offer a clue what this comic might be about! Above are the inks and below the color by Matthew Bogart who is helping me color this book to meet the deadline. I love the warm morning light he brought to this panel. It’s delicious! (And probably more delicious than the liquid breakfast these poor children are drinking!)
