I did a few card illustrations for the first round, and wanted to share the 2 I liked best, along with my favorite sketches for the pieces (including one that wasn't chosen). I was working within their style guide, which really helped flesh out the world and give me some ideas as to how I could design costuming based on the type of card I had.

This is the drawing for my next gallery piece. The idea behind this piece is part myth, spun with my personal taste. I'm doing these pieces as they come from a series of thumbnails I did when I was first invited to show at Chapterhouse, and I'm interested to see what type of show they put together.
I previously posted other material for this piece, sketches, etc, and thought I would put them back up since this piece is moving along again.

Hello all. While waiting to post some recent CCG work I did, I wanted to bring out an old piece I did as a gift. Last year I was thrilled to accompany my girlfriend, her sister, and brother-in-law to a tour of Peru, our focus being the great ancient city of Machu Picchu. Every day was a breath taking display of mountains, jungles, deserts, and a collection of ancient treasures surrounded by myth.
I felt that I could never thank my girlfriend's family enough, but I wanted to try to show my gratitude in some way. In my attempts I tried to make something of a memorial of our time there. The above is the result of that; llamas played a big part in our trip, and of course the Machu Picchu was the Holy Grail of the whole thing. Below, an actual picture of the city taken by my girlfriend.
