The latest issue of Pallet, a journal for people who like to think and drink, is available now. I’m very impressed with the quality of this magazine, and it features articles about everything from science to art to beer..well, mostly beer! And no surprise that’s where I come in. I was invited to contribute a beer label for this issue’s themed feature “Shakesbeer.” To quote the magazine:
He’s the greatest writer in the English language, but one honor yet to be bestowed upon William Shakespeare was for us to invite four breweries and artists from around the world to create an original recipe and label artwork inspired by one of his plays.
I was paired with Ommegang Brewery, but I’ll let the label tell you the rest…Cheers!

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.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tales of Tamriel Book I: The Land is currently available and I spotted a copy or two at Powell’s on Burnside the other day. I have a number of illustrations included and it’s a handsomely designed hardcover from Titan Books. This book is sure to be appealing to anyone gearing up for the release of the video game Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited available June 9th. Book II: The Lore will be out in September of this year and I’ll post more of my illustrations when that book is released.
