Tracking word count for this month. On target, still. 🙂

November 14, 2018 at 7:59 am

The Three Sisters Blind

November 13, 2018 at 9:53 am

In writing how I’d like things to be in the future for Creators, I very quickly become equal parts idealist, hippie, and conspiracy theorist.

So basically we’re all gonna live in creative communes to get away from the Man.

November 12, 2018 at 8:07 am

Artist proofs available right here:

November 11, 2018 at 9:29 am

One of the best books I read this year was A World Undone (and the accompanying The World Remade). It gave me such a fresh insight into the horrors and sadness of WWI. Give it a read:

November 11, 2018 at 9:27 am

We watched Annihilation last night and holy shit that is my kind of movie.

November 10, 2018 at 3:51 pm

After considerable beating my head against the wall, I’ve now written 10000 words this month.

November 10, 2018 at 8:01 am

The Coming Darkness

Prints & playmats here:

November 6, 2018 at 8:51 am

6000 words closer to a book.

I’ll be making the entire book free to read online. And proceeds from the book will go toward producing translations of the book in different languages (as well as making an audiobook, of course). <3

November 5, 2018 at 9:00 am

GRN Promo land proofs now available! 😀

Only in foil, so only 30 copies of each. Go get them:

November 5, 2018 at 6:05 am


November 4, 2018 at 8:45 am

4 days in and still hitting my writing goal of 1000 words a day. Maybe next year I’ll have to do this same thing with an actual novel. 🙂

November 4, 2018 at 6:08 am

An old, old sketch when I was first trying to photobash.

November 2, 2018 at 5:42 pm

I may have almost blacked out earlier but hey I’ve got calories for a glass of scotch now so yeah you could say this cut is going pretty great

November 2, 2018 at 8:46 am

Kayaking & camping with my woman. <3

November 1, 2018 at 10:09 am

I’m sorta-but-not-really participating in #NaNoWriMo

I’ll be taking this month to finish the rough draft of my book, How to Be a Creator.

It already feels like beating my head against the wall. It’s great.

November 1, 2018 at 6:07 am

Only two months left to complete all of my yearly goals. Well, shit.

October 31, 2018 at 11:28 am


A new piece for The Sin of Man. Prints & playmats here:

October 30, 2018 at 8:37 am

I’ve got one last event I’m attending this year: SCG CON December 7-9 down in Roanoke. Hope to see y’all there. 🙂

October 27, 2018 at 6:03 pm

Thanks to everyone who came by my table at #GPNJ. 🙂 See y’all next time!

October 25, 2018 at 8:35 am

Hey y’all I’m at #GPNJ tomorrow and Saturday all day! 😀

October 24, 2018 at 3:22 pm

I’m at #GPNJ this weekend on Friday and Saturday to sign cards, sell prints, and kick ass (metaphorically). Come say hi. 🙂

October 13, 2018 at 7:48 am

A very, very tiny snippet of a personal piece I’m working on finishing.

October 13, 2018 at 5:48 am

The Desperate Lamentations

October 12, 2018 at 2:36 pm

Gonna reupload the Creators Chat episode once I figure out all of the weirdness happening with the audio.

Learning new software is hard.

October 12, 2018 at 9:48 am

The latest (and rather overdue) episode of Creators Chat is now up! We chat about personal projects and how great they are.

October 10, 2018 at 6:09 am

Still doing mailed-in card signatures, y’all.

October 10, 2018 at 5:21 am

Remembering Home

One of my year-end paintings. Feel like I should do one for this year, though I don’t know if I’m capable of doing something so intensely happy as this year deserves.

October 8, 2018 at 9:55 am

The more I read, the more ignorant I realize I am.

Maybe in 20 years or so I’ll start to feel like I know a few things. Though I doubt that.

October 8, 2018 at 8:41 am

Good news, everyone!

I’m gonna be at GP New Jersey in a few weeks. Come by and get signatures or prints or mats or just hang out. See y’all soon. 🙂

Primevals’ Glorious Rebirth

AKA Why Does Darigaaz Have Wings That Connect To His Neck

October 6, 2018 at 8:23 am

Made a set of wallpapers of the 48 Laws of Power, in case anyone’s interested. I set ’em as a slideshow on my desktop.

October 5, 2018 at 9:30 am

I have reached the strange epoch of my life wherein I am genuinely happy about a new set of sheets.

October 5, 2018 at 9:10 am

Pro tip: make your own glass palettes.

1. Glass from Lowe’s/Home Depot

2. Back with foam board.

3. Put gray paper between for better value/color picking.

4. Duct tape the shit out of it.

October 4, 2018 at 8:35 am

One of the first imaginative environments I ever painted. Oh how things change. 🙂

October 3, 2018 at 5:54 am

So Hand in Hand They Passed

October 3, 2018 at 4:58 am

Starting at 10am EST I’m doing some live critiques/paintovers for Art Camp students of their finished pieces. Come learn how to do better finished environments. 🙂

Previous buyer pulled out, so here it is again: Cintiq Companion 2, i5, 128gb. Looking for $800 (which seems cheaper than any I saw on eBay)

September 26, 2018 at 11:10 am

Can’t make it to a GP? Well I’m now, by popular demand, signing cards by mail:

September 25, 2018 at 8:47 am

Sketched a more “normal” fantasy landscape yesterday. Process here:

September 25, 2018 at 6:49 am

I think realistic expectations for creators are essential for happiness & sustainability.
So, realistically for me:

Good work day – 3 hours
Fantastic/exhausting work day – 6 hours

September 25, 2018 at 5:47 am

Trippy landscape, process here:

September 24, 2018 at 2:54 pm

Defining a new genre: Erotic Landscape Painter.

September 24, 2018 at 12:20 pm

So @ImRachelBradley just made me the best necklace.

September 24, 2018 at 8:47 am

I’m doing mailed-in card signatures now:

Quick sketch of an underground throne.

“Let’s have a weekend!”



“…sooooo what do people do on weekends?”

September 21, 2018 at 8:04 am

Check out some of my new Magic pieces for next year

September 21, 2018 at 4:19 am

Echoes of Another Life

Art Camp students start with their first finished landscapes this week. Always fun to watch. 🙂

More playing.

Godless Shrine

The sketch for Mizzium Mortars.

Raise your hand if you’re totally forcing Izzet at the prerelease next weekend.

September 17, 2018 at 10:00 am

The awesome folks at Possibility Storm have put together an all-Noah-Bradley edition of their MTG puzzles.

Listening to a book about food while fasting is a bad decision.

September 14, 2018 at 12:26 pm

Ok one more quick process video for today:

September 14, 2018 at 10:59 am

At the end of the year I’ll pick out a few of my favorite reads and share those. Spoiler: the trilogy biography of Theodore Roosevelt will likely be among them.

September 14, 2018 at 10:56 am

I am also a miserably slow reader. So audiobooks at 1.6x~ speed have been a boon for productivity and enjoyment.

September 14, 2018 at 10:37 am

One of my major goals for 2018 that has improved my life has been reading more. Already passed the 50 book mark for this year. It’s been amazing. Can’t recommend it enough.

September 14, 2018 at 9:18 am

Another sketch process video:

September 14, 2018 at 8:26 am

Screwed up yesterday’s video order, so here it is in proper order. Watch me sketch a landscape super fast:

September 13, 2018 at 5:05 pm

Just uploaded a new sketch video:

September 13, 2018 at 9:55 am

Planning to do online mentorships again starting in November. 5 student max, meeting once a week on hangouts for paintovers and Q&A. Sign up for my mailing list to find out when signups go live.

September 13, 2018 at 7:20 am

Another of yesterday’s sketches. Felt so good to just play again.

September 12, 2018 at 5:52 pm

Been working super hard on some Magic stuff for a long time now, but took a little time this evening to sketch some stuff just for me. <3

September 12, 2018 at 11:11 am

I didn’t get to do much work on Ravnica this time around… so enjoy this flashback to my most popular card from the last time we were on Ravnica.

September 12, 2018 at 8:42 am

Doing a live Art Camp critique on weather & climate in landscape painting in about 15 minutes:

September 12, 2018 at 5:24 am

Don’t trust people whose brushes never stain or fray from use. They clearly possess some dark magics.

September 11, 2018 at 12:17 pm

For sale: Cintiq Companion 2, i5 128gb. Unused in box. Shoot me a message at

September 11, 2018 at 10:00 am

Doing a critique of Art Camp student’s climate/weather sketches tomorrow. Always a fun thing to study.

September 10, 2018 at 8:10 am

A little something I started last year that I still need to get around to finishing.

September 9, 2018 at 10:22 am

Kinda my first professional gig as an artist: painting interminably for Legend of the Five Rings.

BTW the new game is quite good.

September 9, 2018 at 7:31 am

As Darkness Rises

My first gig for D&D, almost 8 years ago now.

September 8, 2018 at 10:57 am

Flow states are rarely achieved on Twitter.
