So, here it is! Chris pallidmask Huth and I spoke at FanExpo about tabletop RPG illustration, specifically at the small press and indie level. We talk about how we got started, what sort of jobs we’ve had, what a standard job is like, what we think is special about illustrating for a game, some basic principles we apply to our illustration practices, and how to get started doing the same thing.

We didn’t get to verbally list our favourite art books, though, so here’s a list:

James Gurney’s Colour and Light and Imaginative Realism

Jack Hamm’s Drawing Scenery: Landscapes and SeaScapes

Joseph Sheppard’s Anatomy: A Complete Guide for Artists

Marcos Mateu-Mestre’s Framed Ink: Drawing and Composition for Visual Storytellers

George Bridgman! Any of his anatomy books, I own and love Constructive Anatomy

Gottfried Bammes’ human and animal anatomy books are great, The Artist’s Guide to Animal Anatomy is a frequent reference for me.

I’m definitely forgetting things - so many of my books are still in storage right now - but hopefully that’s a good list! I’m sure you can find a lot of these in used bookstores, too, they’re often course texts. 

Thanks again and feel free to shoot us questions in our ask boxes!

My day job is illustration for tabletop games, which I hear some of you also enjoy? Perhaps you might then also enjoy this panel I was on, where we talk about it!

Hey friends! neomonki and I are set up at FanExpo! See you here at booth A287 all weekend long!

'TIS FANEXPO TIME!
Weald Comics will be tabling beside neomonki, at table A287 in the Artist’s Alley at FanExpo, which runs from August 28-31 in downtown Toronto. I’ll also be speaking on a panel about my other art practice, illustrating tabletop rpgs. That’s Saturday at 1:45pm, in room 705 - it’s called Blood Spray and Speed Lines - The Life of a Gaming Illustrator and I’ll be sharing the mic with Chris Huth, an award-nominated layout artist and illustrator.
You can see the convention hall map here (pdf!) and the panel schedule here (pdf again!).
I’m putting together a great big pile of stuff to bring for you all to snag - stickers, originals, prints, mugs, totes, tshirts, as well as both By Crom! collections, the first Weald double issue, and some illustrated fiction from Stone Skin Press. I’ll even be doing small comissions of Conan and your darling pets! (bring a cellphone photo or get a weird drawing) Come on by and chat with me and Noreen while we nerd out for four days straight!

Store update!
First off: shipping is going out tomorrow (Monday) afternoon. If you’ve been waiting, make your order right away to get in on this batch!
Secondly: as of Monday at 6pm EST, I am closing my BigCartel store until after FanExpo. I’m down to limited stock in a few things, especially The Collected By Crom!, which is so awesome, but also means I don’t want to oversell anyone anything by accident. So as mentioned, if you’ve been waiting, make your order right away to snag one before this print run is all gone!
The store will be back open the first week of September, and I may have a few other zines to add to it!
Thanks again to all of you for giving me a reason to keep this store going and giving me things to ship on a regular basis! You’re all so wonderful!

bycrom:

By Crom! is my joke-a-panel autobiographical comic featuring life advice and spiritual guidance from Conan the Barbarian. It ran from January 2012 to May 2014, and is collected in two books, The Collected By Crom! and Full Colour Cromulence. You can read the archives on WealdComics.com, and grab the books in print and in PDF.

By Crom! will be tabling with Weald Comics at TCAF, VanCAF, TAAFI and possibly FanExpo Toronto!

Hello new followers! Welcome! Here’s an overview of By Crom! for you all!

If you’re looking for By Crom! this fall, you can catch me flailing excitedly around GenCon with some postcards and high fives but no table, or you can come to booth a287 at FanExpo in Toronto for all the books and prints and originals a true barbarian could desire. 

Cromulent Summer Reruns have been running here on By Crom!, having now completed a rerun of the full first zine. We’re taking a short break and will be back on the 21st with reruns from The Collected By Crom!.

Thank you all so much for all your support here! It’s been a wild ride and I’m touched that you’re touched by all Conan’s “weirdly inspirational” advice!
