I found some enticing images at 13thAge.com of the new GM Screen that I developed with Lee Moyer, along with the accompanying Resource Book that includes a couple of my new interior illustrations. I enjoy these behind-the-screens shots of the printing process. I’ve seen a fair amount of my work in print now, but have never had the opportunity to visit the printer as it comes off the press, so these snapshots are satisfying.
If you’re interested in pre-ordering you can do so HERE.

Following my previous post about Studio Paradiso, I decided to add some of the life drawing I’ve been doing this year. I added a page to this website under the header Life Drawing Gallery. I haven’t yet graduated to sessions longer than 45 minutes, but I’m hoping to work up to it this year. Let’s see how I do! ;-)

I’m providing something a little different today. Most of my blog posts are news updates relating to the projects I’m working on or process posts, but today I’m presenting a sequential cartoon strip that I drew specifically for this blog. It’s also unique because it’s autobiographical and expresses something I care passionately about. I’m calling it an “advertoon” because its meant to support my friend’s business, but I compiled this series of images simply because I wanted to express something important to me. Thanks for taking at look.

13th Age continues to expand in exciting and unpredictable ways. This slick video is a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of theme music for the game. Enjoy!
And here are some of the tracks!

I took some time off from blogging last month, did you notice? That wasn’t intentional, but I’m finishing the graphic novel that I’ve been working on this year and I guess that preoccupation was to blame for the neglect. Here’s a panel from a page I colored over the weekend. I’ll see if I can get aamcconnell.com back in motion this month. Maybe Tintin and Snowy can help…

Remember that I excitedly announced that 13th Age was up for a 2014 ENnie Award or 3? Well, evidently the winners are selected by popular vote. If you are so inclined, please follow this LINK to the ballot and vote for 13th Age in categories Best Game, Best Rules, and Product of the Year. (Then go ahead and place your bets secure in the knowledge that you rocked the vote.) Voting ends tomorrow, so don’t hesitate.
Detail from an illustration in the core book, page 73 seen here: And here’s the original sketch. Hey! The numbers keep changing, don’t they?! That bookie can’t be trusted!
