What's up, people? First post here but I notice there are some people here from another site I've had the pleasure of meeting already, so that's
cool.




I was doing a search for one of my all-time favorite artist, Jim Holloway, and came across this site.....nice products. The modules Pied Piper Publishes takes
me back to my childhood with that cool "old school" vibe.




I love looking at others' artistic takes on gaming scenes, so here's a step by step process of mine dealing with a dwarf and halfling getting a nasty
surprise while trying to pilfer a previously unlucky adventurer's pouch.........I think his demise should have been a clue that this wasn't going to be
an easy task. Cheers.

Nice illo., yet I still hate spiders. I hope the halfling and dwarf win.

I have! I visit there everyday to see if there are any updates to the site. Jim's stuff was always inspiring to me when I was gaming back in the
80's...easily my favorite fantasy/gaming artist of all-time. His stuff always captured a moment like no other. That painting of his that was just taken
down from the home page involving the dwarf getting ready to battle a giant of some sort was one of my favorites of his. I'll be keeping my eye out for
updates on the site, not to mention the art you put up on Ebay. Keep up the good work on that site (a forum on that site would be awesome)...and thanks for the
kind words toward my doodles.

Here's one I'm currently working on of a party (2 dwarves and a gnome) lowering their latest conquest off the side of a mountain....a felled
Displacer Beast.

Fine work. It definitely has that Old School feel I'm always looking for.
