A Very Special Commission

It has been a long while since I have posted anything on a regular basis here on the ol' Art Blog. I have new duties at work and time I have to devote to outside products has noticeably diminished. That said... I have still been taking, if not posting, Sidekick Quests' commissions. One such request turned out to be very special to me and I would like to take the time and share it with you.


Right before Christmas I was contacted by a woman named Stephanie Crews who wanted a Sidekick Quests sheet commissioned for her husband and their son for her husband's birthday. Both, I was told, were avid gamers and she really loved the idea of giving them custom RPG characters that they could use with the monsters I'd released on line in order to play together. 


I also learned that her husband was an old friend of mine and a member of several gaming troops I have run and played with in the past. Her husband, Eric Crews, was someone I hadn't heard from in years. I had moved away, both started families and we simply lost contact. This immediately made this project very special to me.


In further reading through her email I learned that Eric had suffered an accident since I had last seen him that has left him confined to a wheelchair. His wife made sure to request a character for him that spun his disability into a bonus. 


Ultimately this has been one of the most fulfilling commissions I have ever been ask to do. 


Today is Eric's birthday. Happy Birthday! I hope you like your sheets!

Fuck. YES. Amazing work as always, sir. We need more things like this. We need more gaming aimed at kids and families, and we need more ways to make disabled characters viable in fantasy settings. Kudos.

Hilariously cool. I have been looking for sites like this for a long time. Thank you my friend.
