D&D Curse of Strahd

These two illustrations were painted last year for Dungeons & Dragons' recently released "Curse of Strahd" Adventure.

In the first painting, vistani seer, Stanamir, conjures and vision in the flames of a campfire. I'm happy to say this painting has been accepted to Spectrum 23! It's also featured in an article on the D&D website.

In the second painting, a little creepier than my usual work, the witch, Morgantha, takes human form to sell her drug laced pies in a misty oppressed town.

In still more news, I had the honor of being a juror of acceptance for  this year's National Juried Exhibition with the Oil Painters of America. I think it's going to be a great show and since my vote doesn't count towards my own entries I'm also happy to say Shadowy Deep has been accepted to the show as well.
