On the seventh day...

"Heavens to Murgatroyd!", and where does the time go? Down the rabbit hole methinks. Now, if only we can reverse the process.

Lots of news and stuff, mostly bits and pieces but if I don't mention [post now] I'll be 'late' again. So, more robots, as I promised last time. This time Insectodroids or as my better half remarked, 'Bugbots' and Dave {Morris} said last time, 'scorpion/saurian/insectscorpion/saurian/insectoid robotsoid robots'. Votes will be counted:).

Now these are just a selection, but they should give you an idea of what could be seen 'scurrying around the jungles of the Abraxas MMO...'

Now bits of news, I'll try and make links to each for those interested who want to follow up.

End of the month I will be in Mons, Belgium to be an invited guest at the "Trolls & Legends" Festival of Fantasy , where I will be showing a few bits of original art.

So if anyone would like to say hi, please do so. Not sure yet what I'm involved in but will be at the 'Le Grimoire' table when I can. Have been completing work for Le Grimoire's latest book [see last post for more details] "Loup Solitaire - LE LIVRE D'AVENTURE" due out in May.
Also coming out soon is the "LotFP Weird Fantasy Role-Playing Grindhouse Edition", which has gone to the printer, in which I have contributed four of my pictures, below is one example.

This was also raised by http://mikemonaco.wordpress.com where he says, under a heading of - Russ effing Nicholson, ' So I mentioned a while back that my idea for an illustration for the LotFP:WFRPG was selected to be used, and I was stoked about the prospect of a free boxed set.  Now I’m even more stoked because I found out that the artist who did the illustration was Russ Nicholson!  I first saw his work in the Fiend Folio.  Since then I’ve come to appreciate his work even more, although I always loved the FF illustrations.
Mr. Nicholson now has a blog so you can see some of his stuff there.  I can’t wait to see what did with my suggestion.  I’m honored that idea was picked at all, and even more honored that someone as talented as Russ Nicholson created an illustration based on it.  One more thing to look forward to in the “Grindhouse edition” of the game.'

Praise indeed, and as I posted on his blog, I hope he likes what I did, but you'll have to wait a bit to see it.  

Some more bits soon [err....fingers crossed :)]


  1. The bugbots are creepy and original. I think my favourite is the first one, with those feelers that look like limp human legs.

  2. Very cool gribbley cyborg things. The eyeball with the legs is an especially nice drawing.

  3. Those insects are beautiful. Please keep us updated, your work is phenomenal.

    Any time you want to talk about the specifics of your process and techniques I'm all ears. Do you have a book?

  4. Thanks for your comments.

    In answer do I have a book? .... If ever I can find a publisher [grin]. In fact, I may have two books [bigger grin].
