The Wizards of Ur



In the ancient lands of Ur there roamed a class of warrior wizards, whose sole mission was to enlighten the world through their arcane scribblings and mystical arts. Quills in hand, swords at the ready, these Wizards of Ur were a remarkable force with unr

Sci-Fi San Francisco

This is the cover to "Sci-Fi San Francisco", a new anthology of 20 comics set in the future of our fair city. It's from Skodaman Press who published "The Comic Book Guide to the Mission" a few years back. This one hae been a while in the making, but it looks like publisher Lauren Davis has done an incredible job of putting together the work of some fantastic local comic creators. Check it out here:

Rumblings in the Old City

As I passed the storied towers of Ur I spied motion on a high terrace... some ancient wizard walked there among the ruins, sunlight glinting off his jeweled, conical hat. What does this sign mean? I will roll the bones and ask this question of powers beyond mortal realms.



The Tower of Ur

The Tower of Ur now stands a crumbling ruin. A shabby monument to the past glories of a greater age. A lone figure stands amidst the windswept remains, hooded against the elements. He takes out pen and parchment and scribbles a hasty note to tack on the wall, should any of his fellow wizards pass this way again in their travels. Good travels my friends, and may we meet again someday on the Shores of Imagination.

I wrote a guest post on "The Great Raven", an Australian sci-fi & Book review blog, to blather on about myself and Wizard Pickles:

What with making his monthly sales quotas and homeschooling his kids, Pewfell’s life is no longer his own. Could popular children’s entertainer Strangeblob NoPants be the answer to all his problems?

I've been using traditional media lately. Typically I draw on the Wacom but lately I have felt the need to bust out my old tools. I have a lot of bristol that needs ink.

A new cartoon I just did for a new book from Goodman Games called "Monster Alphabet". It's a follow up to their successful "Dungeon Alphabet" from a few year ago. I got to do "Q is for Quill". If you like the art you find here on WizardsOfUr.com, then you will probably also love these Art Books from Goodman, featuring stellar old-school RPG art from some of the Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG regulars.

It's been quite a qhile since I've posted something on this blog. My apologies. I've recently started making some eye-candy again after an almost 2 year break. These are just some, "getting my feet wet" pics. Hope you like `em.






There will be more to come. I feel a bit rejuvenated.
Thanks,

I just published my first RPG adventure module "Howler". Check it out at RPGNow!

For those going "what's a module?", this is an adventure scenario for fantasy role playing. Y'know...D&D type stuff. In fact, this one is based on the 3.5 rules made available by the Open Game License.

And I gotta tell ya, this was as much fun to create (if not more) than most comics I've ever done. I'm already digging into Doomslakers Adventures #2.

Weird that I haven't posted here in...I have no idea how long. Remedy time!

Back in 2012 I published Blood Red Vol 1. It's a 64-page pin-up book filled with the kinds of femme forms I like to draw. Typically busty with very little clothing and carrying heavy weapons. Or something like that. You can lay hands on the book here in print or here in digital form.


I just submitted Vol 2 for listing and I'll post that link as soon as Ka-Blam has it up. In the second installment I added comics to the mix. The b&w version of one of my Pan-Gea stories is in there plus a bunch of goofy Dungeon Minds comics like these:




I've also been doing a lot of work on RPG design. Actually I've been obsessed with it for a year, burying myself in text files and mostly ignoring everything else. I tend to do that once or twice a decade.

I'm not sure who is actually checking the ole Wizards of Ur page these days but I'll be posting a bit more frequently. So stop by and check it out.

Tony, Chuck, Nate, Travis...and whoever else might have posted here in the past...I hope you are all doing awesome!



Cor Blok

2014-05-21T13:40:43.450-07:00

Third and final of my three 'Share the Love' posts today is for Cor Blok and his amazing illustrations for Lord of the Rings.

Fifty years ago, shortly after The Lord of the Rings was first published, Dutch artist Cor Blok read the work and was completely captivated by its invention and epic storytelling. The breadth of imagination and powerful imagery inspired the young Dutch artist, and this spark of enthusiasm, coupled with his desire to create art that resembled a historical artefact in its own right, led to the creation of more than 100 paintings. Following an exhibition at the Hague in 1961, JRR Tolkien's publisher, Rayner Unwin, sent him five pictures. Tolkien was so taken with them that he met and corresponded with the artist and even bought some paintings for himself. The series bears comparison with the Bayeux Tapestry, in which each tells an epic and complex story in deceptively simple style, but beneath this simplicity lies a compelling and powerful language of form that becomes more effective as the sequence of paintings unfolds.

These are a really refreshing take on Tolkien's work, and much closer in style to Tolkien's own illustrations for the Hobbit. I love the current Peter Jackson movies, and the artwork of John Howe and Alan Lee but their more realistic depictions have come to dominate the genre lately. These are a nice step back in time, and retro is what we love here in Tower of Ur. Kind of reminds me a bit of Tove Jansen's Moomins illuutrations.
