David A. Trampier At the height of his career in the late 1980s, Trampier suddenly withdrew from the gaming world and life in general, becoming a social recluse. Although the reasons for this break were unclear, a disagreement with TSR is possible; it is clear that later in life, Trampier wanted nothing to do with TSR or its successor, Wizards of the Coast. For many years, Trampier's location was unknown to anyone and rumors circulated that he had died; his brother-in-law, Tom Wham denied this, although Wham admitted that even he did not know where Trampier was or what he was doing. Trampier was rediscovered by accident, working as a taxi driver in Carbondale, Illinois, when a local reporter did a ride along and — without knowing Trampier's background — subsequently published Trampier's name and photograph.
Eric Freitas I’ve just discovered some wax materials that I’m very excited about! Yes, that’s right, I just said I’m excited about wax….what of it? I’ve been diving more seriously into the world of casting, and I like some of the creative doors that the process opens up. Andrew Theophilopoulos 1hr Demo at Ringling College in Florida. Together with Thomas Scholes, I had a lovely time doodling for a crowd of passionate Illustrators, Game Art, Animators and many other young artists. I started the event with an old painting of mine, (Tigers) and added a Singer Sargent to the mix (Lady Macbeth). I’d come to campus with the plan to do a character in an environment - portrait style - though, with the ingredients chosen for the painting I was unsure of what the final image would become. To start, I chose a classy painting of mine, with a lot of work put into the personality of texture, color etc.

Ruth Sanderson's Golden Wood Studio - Welcome I am happy to share the process for creating the cover illustration of my upcoming book A CASTLE FULL OF CATS, due to be released in early 2015.

CGS Artist Profile - Linda Tso While the world outside has a rich collection of reference, there is nothing like the web as the source of searchable visual reference, and Linda Tso takes advantage of that resource for mood. “I've saved a lot of beautiful images and paintings from the web,” she explains, “and I like to browse through the folders when I have nothing to do. As much as things like music and writing inspires me as well, it's the visual queues that make the greatest impact, and that includes movies, dreams and magazines of any kind.

Production assistance provided for the following: 1. Artist Profile: David A. Trampier « Casewerk: More Internet Ravings In the latest in my irregular series of artist profiles, I have decided to highlight one of my favorite of the early D&D artists, David A. Trampier, often better known for the initials DAT that would appear on many of his gaming works. His is a name that only grognards are likely to be familiar with, but he was one of the formative artists in the early period of roleplaying games. Despite the relatively brief period (if the late 70′s to 1988 is brief, mind you) in which he was involved in gaming art and comics, Trampier had a considerable impact on the feel of gaming, and remains one of the best beloved of the 1st edition-era gaming artists. Many fans of the early D&D material (myself included) feel that Tramp defined the early look of the game outright, before true painters like Elmore, Parkinson and Caldwell later came to dominate the scene. In any case, I adore his skillful black and white illustrations and his mastery of line weight, light and shadow.
