My Bio


I am OPEN for Illustration projects and to privately commission work , I can be contacted here-


To summarize the art of Michael Rechlin is a complicated task. Combine Germanic and Celtic Mythology, with the talents of such inspiring artists as Frank Frazetta, Berni Wrightson and Simon Bisley. Add a large dose of Heavy Metal with Dungeons and Dragons, and you’ve entered the mind of Michael Rechlin. For 30 years, he's been selling his art. First working in the burgeoning underground metal scene in Buffalo, NY composing flyers, fanzines, demo covers, etc. then on to comics and pin-up illustration. During a 10 year career as a professional tattooist he started getting more and more freelance work offers. In 2014 he moved on to being a full time artist. This includes working in the fields of illustration, conceptualization and merchandise design. His work has been published in "Aphrodisia" Volumes 1 and 2, "Eye Candy for Strangers", "Infected by Art" Volumes 3-6 and more. "Spellcrow", "Dark Sword Miniatures" and "D-Verse Publishing" are just a few of his recent clients. Michael currently is freelancing taking on projects and private commissions. When he’s not in the studio he enjoys spending time with his wife Melissa and 2 dogs- Thor & Loki in their idyllic country setting.

ART Thieves-

Lately i've been getting messages saying that people are stealing my work and using it for NFT's. So thanks to those Dirt Bags from now on i will be uploading watermarked art and WIP's only. If you want to see the art without edit on a smaller scale, make sure and follow me on Instagram. Cheers-

I'm loving the series on paleolithic baby boomers.

There are a few illustrations in the DCC core rulebook that are in a similar vain, IIRC.

Thanks, not sure what the DCC rulebook is?

It's the main book for the tabletop system, Dungeon Crawl Classics.
