Starting today, Friday August 31, I am attending PAX Prime in Seattle, Washington to assist the Fire Opal Media folks promote 13th Age and the expansion book 13 True Ways currently kickstarting. What is PAX Prime? Your Answer.
I’ve brought 40 prints with me for sale at the Gamma Ray Games booth. There are ten 11″ x 14″ prints each of the 4 images I’ve shown here, and Lee Moyer and I will be available to sign them from 2-4pm on Friday and Saturday.
And there’s a rumor that I’ll be Icon Sketching as time allows. We’ll see how it goes. I hope to see you there!

I’ve got some unexpected wallpaper to share with you, but before doing so, here’s another reminder about that thing, that Kickstarter thing.
Now, about that wallpaper. I’m in the process of wallpapering my studio again, but I took a picture of the old papering job before I ripped it down. Take a look…
That’s some progress on the Gettysburg Address book. A glimmer of hope to those who are patiently waiting for me to finish this graphic novel.

Axis, City of Swords…capital of the Dragon Empire, one of the 7 Cities. Axis is a city of wonders, military power, and martial competition. Gladiatorial games, skirmishes between noble houses, and staged holy wars hone the fighting spirit of an empire built on conquest. –Text from the 13th Age Playtest
I think the comparison between gladiatorial games and Kickstarter is appropriate. ”All or nothing” in both cases. The creative team behind 13th Age, myself included, has launched a Kickstarter campaign for an expansion book, 13 True Ways. Even though the 13th Age core book is in the post-production stage and won’t be available until after the Kickstarter for 13 True Ways is finished, despite the outcome, the core book is guaranteed to be an object of desire. So, please consider assisting the creative team in their pursuit to expand the 13th Age universe. 13th Age has been a a labor of love for all 4 collaborators, but we’re at a crossroads and need the financial support to keep it going. Thanks for your consideration. I hope you can join me in exclamation, “I am Spartacus!”
In keeping with my previous “Behind-the-Illustration” posts, here’s an early sketch of the Half-Orc Gladiator at Axis:
