Hey, Artheads! We finished production on our next Rather Dashing Game 'Pirates Ninjas Robots & Zombies" and the art for that was really fun. Have a Look! I'm having fun designing the cover and cranking out some chapter sketches for our series of Steampunk novels coming out soon (Self Published). Keep an eye out for the Kingship series. Also, if you are a geek like me, keep an eye on my Mashups Gallery.  Lots of fun will be popping up there. Thanks for all the support!  It motivates me extremely! - Grant

New Projects

Well, with Dwarven Miner done and now for sale, it's time to move on to other projects. I just completed some signage work for GameStop which was an honor for me. I have been a fan of GameStop for years. What a great company. I am currently working on illustrations of two demons for an author.  These guys are so fun to create. The author really created some great characters for me to work with. I am also working on two projects simultaneously for Rather Dashing Games. One is an expansion to Dwarven Miner, the other is super top secret! I can't wait to share this artwork with you all as soon as it is free to share publicly. In the meantim

I have worked my butt off drawing all the art for Dwarven Miner.  My board game company is new and doesn't have too much exposure, but we really want to get this product out. It will be the start of an entire product line full of sequel games and expansions.  Not just filler expansions, but ones that radically change the gameplay. In order to bring this amazing product line to the world we need support on Kickstarter to get the project off the ground. Please have a look, watch the video, and pledge if you can.  If you can't pledge, please help by spreading the word. Just click here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ratherdashinggames/dw

Happy DA anniversary, Grant! :clap:
Love your art. My Passion for art came when I tried to find an escape from my daily routine. I picked up a pencil over four years ago and tried to draw. I was terrible but I loved it and it gave me great joy. It also inspired my kids to pursue their passions. I now illustrate Children's books and love it. The best thing in life is to find what makes you happy and do it.
Happy Birthday! :iconbrohugplz:
Happy Birthday, Grant!
Happy Birthday!
Much respect to you and your decisions following your artistic passion. There is nothing more potent than the artistic drive and you have tons of it! You're past work has been a nightly viewing occurrence for my wife & I, thanks for being such an entertaining presence in our lives for the past decade.
Thank you so very much!  :D
