For this first one, my agent Richard Solomon and his staff have been putting together an illustrated Factoid sheet. I got to illustrate the factoid “Olympus Mons on Mars is the largest volcano in our solar system”. I am a big space nerd so this was a great one for me. Mons is really massive at about 15 miles tall and hundreds of miles across.
Here are a few new pieces for D&D’s Heroes of the Fallen Lands book that was released on September 21st. They are for the Iconic characters named Fargrim, Dwarf Slayer. It is great to get some more work for D&D’s printed books and I had a blast working on these two images. AD was Kate Irwin and she was great to work with.
I just pulled what you might call an overnighter. It is a cover for the current issue of The Weekly Standard. I worked with excellent AD Philip Chalk and we hammered this sucker out really quick. I won’t say exactly how quick…lets keep that a secret, haha. The little girl is my good friend Joe Bereta’s daughter Hayden. Thanks to Joe and Heather and Hayden. And thank you to Amanda Barnes for letting me use some of her photos of Hayden for reference. I would not have been able to fly down to LA in time to take them, considering I got the job on Wednesday.
Let me start by apologizing for the lack of posts lately. I was out of town for most of August and I am finally back and attempting to get a rhythm going again. Not easy after so much time off.
The ball is starting to roll again and to kick it off, here are some images I recently got printed in a new D&D Dark Sun Creature Catalog. I did a few interior pieces for the book and it is great to see them actually in print. The excellent cover for the book was done by Wayne Reynolds.
I should have some more work for D&D coming out in the next few months but I can’t post just yet. The NDAs have bound my hands as they always do.
Additionally, my agent Richard Solomon has created an art for sale section on his main website, www.richardsolomon.com. This link will take you to RonSusser.com. Richard and Ron have set up a great list and here you can purchase originals as well as prints from many of his artists. Greats like Marshall Arisman, James Bennett, Mark Summers, Rick Farrell, Mark English, John Mattos, and many others all have pieces available for purchase. I am up there as well. Please check it out.
Sorry for the huge gap in posts. I have recently been in the middle of moving up to Washington state. I am now in the Tacoma area and have almost completed setting up my studio again. Tomorrow I have to hit the ground running, hopefully, and get back to work. I thought I would throw up a few D&D pieces I did. Now back to work…….
