And now for something completely different -

'Thought I might actually try posting some *art* here. :-)

My high school senior son is developing a board game for his Senior Project. After designing it, he commissioned me to render and paint the actual board for his game.

(sorry for the shadow. I couldn't get completely out of the way of the sun when photographing out on the deck. Click picture for a larger view)

I can't tell you how fun it is working on something a: for fun (and for a very agreeable client) and b: NOT fairy related. It has been ages since I've worked with pen and ink or on hot press. Fun, fun, fun...

On the only downside, I haven't tried washes on hot press for ages either (always more problematic than on cold press). That's tonight. Unless I totally bite it, I'll post the results.

I LOVE maps and plans - that's a beauty and I look forward to the coloured version too.

Love the map with all the detail! I can't wait for the colored version either. Love the pictures of Victoria post too. Makes me want to travel.
