Writings

Paintings

  • Much More Than A Discussion of War:
Around the edges of the paper, orcs are drawn in a blurry, abstract style, their bodies represented by nothing more than angry strokes of red paint, armed with thin streaks of black, obscure weaponry. They seem to rush toward the center of the frame, where, in contrast, a band of defenders is drawn in painstaking detail: Klurn, Kammae, Rairken, Sturm, Somniumvisum, Zymi, and others . . . back-to-back in a circle, their arrows, spells and steel lunging outward toward the advancing horde. A title and date are scribbled at the bottom: Much More Than A Discussion of War; 427 years, 56 days AV.
  • Tavern Troupe Slumber Party:
The center of the page is consumed by a gigantic silver telescope, with a dark black sky stretched out above it, freckled with points of starlight arranged into familiar heavenly bodies. A great many persons are painted as laying around its base, most of them covered in splashes of blue bedroll. From the edges of the page, sinister shapes creep inward, dark and foreboding, composed of small excerpts of text - the manifestation of dark stories, come to life. Whilst the unknowing slumberers at center laugh and assail each other with weapons of feather and cloth. A title and date are scribbled at the bottom: Tavern Troupe Slumber Party; 429 years, 129 days AV.
  • It Got A Bit Dicey:
The setting is a beach: a crescent-shaped cove that wraps its sandy arms around either edge of the painting's border. The group assembled there is painted close together: Djorde at the lead, the others crowded around him, his open palm outstretched toward the viewer - the dice that come rolling out of it are painted blurry and mid-throw, forever frozen in this moment, their outcome eternally uncertain. Regarding the group assembled, there's a hopefulness in each of their eyes. A hope that their number will appear. A hope that they'll get the prize. A hope that maybe the friendships borne on this beach and around these dice will echo into eternity. A title and date are scribbled at the bottom: It Got A Bit Dicey; 431 years, 16 days AV.
