GenCon 2018 was AMAZING!!! Being the only non-Australian on the dev team for 'Hand of Fate: Ordeals',this was my first weekend to actually **TOUCH OUR GAME**!  I might have licked it a little.  I definitely hugged it.
It was also my first time to run into more than one person per year who's actually heard of Hand of Fate or know we have a board game out.  I got to meet so many fans and Kickstarter backers; it was truly overwhelming.  So much love, and it felt really validating and encouraging.  Also, the board game's super fun to play.  I got to dress up as the Dealer and run people through short demos of it; everyone had a blast and there was much rejoicing.
Check out an interview showing all the game components and stuff here (I'm running a demo in the bg):
I just did an interview about working on Hand of Fate: Ordeals with the board game blog "More Games Please"!  Check it out!

Great post-PAX review here:

With all my draw-able time going to cards for Hand of Fate, I've uploaded a handful of random doodles and misc stuff from the past year just to keep a semblance of life around the gallery.  I really gotta finish some of this w.i.p. stuff...
Wow!  "Hand of Fate", the PC game I'm currently doing card art for, is now on Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight!!!  WooHOO!
Check out the video at either one, and if you decide to support/vote for it, thanks a ton in advance!

Seriously, thanks for checking it out; I've been having a ton of fun designing the weird medieval stuff for it, and the team's been amazing to work with.  A lot of the creatures and equipment are based on concept art by the amazing Nick Smith, who you can check out here: artnuggets.net  He's amazing!
PS-- I like making DA friends, so drop me a note sometime!
Also, I tend to overuse exclamation marks.

ahem......

Playing HoF2 right now and returned to tell you how amazing you are once more!!!
Your art style is  the main reason the game is as amazing as it is (with the dealer being a second close, gosh I love the dealer)!!
Keep being awesome :la:
also the maiden getting old made me laugh way more than it should have !!
