Dragonlance Chronicles Volume 1

For Dragonlance fans here are scans of the interior pen & Ink artwork I did for the chapter pages back in 1984. This was my first black and white publication work.

  1. Your cover art on Dragon Magazine (the chess pieces ones are truly iconic) corresponds with the high point of that era.

    I remember the Dragon cover art so well, I had forgotten about these interior black /white illustrations. 40 years later? There’s not much I would change about them. There’s always room to quibble, but in this case? Not much, to be fair.

    Illustrations are commercial art and reflect the product and the times they were created. When they seem as relevant 40 years later? Remarkable.

  2. Brings back so many memories! Thank you for sharing!
