What I look like.

This weekend I will be at Emerald City Comic Con walking the floor with my family and handing out Sidekick Quests leaflets. Without a booth or table how are you going to find me? I'll be the dude in the cool tee-shirt. 

Ask me about Sidekick Quests!

Literal Literary Book Title

This was my entry in tonight's CLAW Open Swim. The contest was to create literal interpretations of book titles. Can you guess the title. I will give you a hint: The BLANK BLANK of BLANK

The figure behind the bear is the main character in my fellow CLAW brother's Feed>>Tacoma comic: Thorax O'Tool's Beantown

Purple Unicorn

I recently hit 500 fans on my Facebook page. Fan #499 Leslie Stewart of who lives near my home town in PA asked if she could get a prize for being fan #499. I said, "Sure, what would you like?" and she said "Purple Unicorn".

So here you go.

Bonus... I love this thing so much i think I am going to make it one of the starter faeries a Scout gets in Sidekick Quests. Thanks Leslie.

SIDEKICK QUESTS Commission: The Joe Stroup Troop

This is the latest Sidekick Quests commission requested by GM Joe Stroup. Tonight his troop plays their final session... their last combat of Epic Tier against Tiamat. They've been together in this troop for an awesome 3 years and Joe commissioned this group shot of the level 30 characters to commemorate the end of the campaign.

The characters are (from left to right): Kildrak Stormborn the Dwarven Barbarian played by Gary (Joe's father-in-law), Kydan the Dragonborn Runepriest played by Devan (his sister-in-law's boyfriend), Hermy Blackhand the Half-Elven Paladin of The Raven Queen played by Brittany (Joe's wife), Xune the Drow Rogue played by Hayley (Joe's sister-in-law), Muffi Greasemonkey the Gnomish Artificer played by Noelle (Joe's other sister-in-law) and Bettledex the Human Wizard played by Nancy (Joe's mother-in-law).

Please join me in rooting this roleplaying family on has they end Epic and the life of Tiamat. Good luck Stroup Troop!

Now if you'd like to commission a group portrait of your troop you can do so over at the Sidekick Quests store...

Crowdsourcing Business Cards

Okay everyone... I have a favor to ask. I am designing a new business card. I have four variations I am playing around with. I am going to show you each version and I'd like to know which one you think I should move forward with: Superhero me, Wrestler me, Barbarian me or Nude me.
