So what's the purpose of this campaign? Simple ... We're hoping to raise some funds to pay advances to the artists and writers who have contributed to this project. That's it. 100% of all proceeds from this campaign (after paying for the rewards themselves) go directly to the creators who contributed stories as advances on their royalties.

We're offering some great rewards -- including a limited edition of the book available ONLY as a Kickstarter reward! Take a look and see for yourself!

That's it!

A bunch of art, natch

Sorry I haven't posted here in a while. I'm dumping a few recent tidbits for the pleasure and enjoyment of that guy in Italy...

Space Ranger Catgirl

I like to mix up my genres like a plate of mashed potatoes, corn, mac-n-cheez, and meatloaf. When I did my King Arthur RPG "The Questing Beast" I could not help but make it anthropomorphic...just another wrinkle to the idea.

Catgirl, space, sci-fantasy. Now if I can work her into a story that is based on McBeth it will be awesome.

LotR: Eowyn

Here is what Eowyn might have looked like if I was casting. Of course it would be difficult for her to pretend to be a dude!

(This is an older drawing that I recently dashed some colors upon.)

`Tween Comic

I want to do more!

Moebius: Article/Interview

This is a great article on Jean "Moebius" Giraud. I have many things and people that inspire me to create but none come close to the inspiration this man has provided me with since I was a young teen discovering Heavy Metal Magazine for the first time. It'd be a few years after that initial discovery, when my mind was entrenched in sex, drugs and rock n' roll but, when I came back to the world of comics Moebius was there to welcome me back. I hope the trip never ends.

Play Nice.

Here's a little ditty I drew a few months ago. I've been in this sort of in-between state, exploring lots of different ideas. This one was going to be the first page of a longer tale but it ended up just being a one page gag. Turned out pretty good, I think.

Obviously I had some of da Bode on my brain.

(edit: I hadn't read this since I drew it. Got a couple of typos in there. I'll speak with my #97s about fixing it later.)

(P.S.: "Phase two negotiations" refers to a scene that was to come after this one. Basically, they kill the proprietor of the filling station. Cue rimshot.)

The Raging Elf

Here's something from the vault. An old character of mine. I think this one resides in the very dark part of my mind. He made his first appearance on the old ModernTales site back in like...2001 or 2002. I can't even remember. It was a story called, "One Good Turn." Good luck finding that out there in the internet world. I no longer have the files for that one so it's probably lost somewhere in cyber space and time. I'm sure that's for the best. Maybe I'll put him back out there someday.

I'm off to Orlando in a few days for some Ka-Blam work and Megacon. C'mon you cosplay ladies...make it worth my while! Should be fun. :)

Play Nice.

Temple of Brog!

Here's the rest of "Temple of Brog". I intended this to be one of several shorts I was going to put in Blood Red Comics #1, a print project I have on my mind.

Still plan to do it, just don't have a timeline yet.

Temple of Brog Pg 1/7

Been a while since I chimed in here at the good ole Wizards of Ur blog. I've been keeping pretty busy, doing comics, laying low. Sometimes I peek out from the darkness and see what's going on.

Here's a comic I did recently for your entertainment...

Blog update

Anyone else been having trouble posting lately? I was finding I couldn't enter comments a lot of the time. I think it was something about Disqus having been updated. I just did some tinkering and updating to the blog, including the fancy new color stylings -- I had to go back to a default template but I kind of liked how it looks - comments please!

Just Some Fun

This is a random page from a side project I've been doing in between everything else. Just something for fun that looks like it may actually hatch into something. You can never tell with these things. This will be in color someday. :)

I tend to forget when I "zone out" and get a little detail crazy that I'm going to have to color at some point. I'm sure my head will explode when the time comes but, hopefully, it'll have been worth it.

Play Nice!

Latest doings

hey, guys!  ATLAND returns with new strips on March 3. In the meantime, I moved to a new house and new studio -- and started up a monthly Pathfinder RPG campaign. Our first adventure is this weekend.  Dig it:

Grave Business Cover

Here's the cover for Grave Business. The logo was done by Minion's Graphic Designer Clay Gardner (except I did the hand). I noticed Clay used Nate's 'Entrails' Font and was happy to hear it was all bought and paid for ;)

The Comic Book Guide to the Mission

Not totally Ur-related, but I was recently commissioned to do this cover art for 'The Comic Book Guide to the Mission'. I was very honored to do it especially since the book features work by many great local cartoonists here in SF. As you can see, I had a lot of fun with it and really went to town, so to speak!

The book has shipped and is now available for order at">

Going's On

Hey Wizards,

I've been pretty busy lately working on some projects and spreading the Indy comic love through Ka-Blam. It also seems that my busy schedule has no let up in sight which is a good thing.

So here's what's going on.

Besides my gig with Ka-Blam, I'm working on three comic projects at the moment. One is in the beginning stages and is a sci-fi/espionage epic written by Thomas Hall, the creator of the critically acclaimed Indy series' Robot 13 and King from Blacklist Studios. This should surprise anyone who's followed my work as Thomas has given me a unique and different path to explore with my art. I'm pretty excited by all of it.

The second project is one that has been in the works for a few years. It's a story written by my longtime friend and Ka-Blam cohort, Jenni Gregory of Dreamwalker, Abbie's Menagerie fame called "Becky's Alien". It's something of a sci/fi story but very character driven. Jenni's way with character development is one of her strongest assets as a writer. Just check out her work on Dreamwalker. We're hoping to premiere this one at Megacon 2011 in Orlando next month.

The third project is one that has been more of a personal project; something I do when I need to relax or have a few spare minutes in the day. It's all the cool stuff I love to doodle and write about. Expect a plethora of aliens, ugly humans, boobs, flying cars, political/religious mysteries, lots of trash and dirty sidewalks. I'm not sure where I'm going with this one. I may just release it as a graphic novel whenever I get to the finish line. I hadn't realized how many pages I had done for this until recently so I figured I could probably mention it as I'm sure I'll see it through to the end now. Page on the right there is a random page from this project. Still needs color.

That's it!
Sharing is caring, no?
Play Nice.

Grave Business

I've been very remiss at posting here lately, sojurning as I have been in the outer rims of Ur. Great to see that the rest of you guys are still posting and have done so much fantastic work in my absence.

Among other things I'm doing the art for a new game by MinionGames. Here's a sneak peek at some of it:

And here are the updates...

Long time no post...

Hey guys! For some reason I wasn't able to log into blogger using my hotmail username, so I haven't posted here in ages.

I have not been idle however. In fact, I found out this week that I won a Xeric grant to publish Much book 3! The image above is a sketch for the cover that I'd like some opinions on. What do you think? I'll post all the comic updates I missed in just a sec.
