Holy buckets.  HALF A MIL at the end of the Kickstarter campaign.
We're all just speechless.  It's such a beautiful board game!  So proud to be part of both these awesome teams!

The HoF:Ordeals board game doubled it's Kickstarter goal in a DAY!  Yowza!!!  Here's an awesomely in-depth 'Man vs Meeple' video of it-- they show off a ton of the card art.  So excited to get my hands on a copy!
Hand of Fate is getting a BOARD GAME!  It's called "Ordeals" and is looking beautiful.  An Australian graphic designer named Ian O'Toole (ianotoole.com) is reworking lots of my art for it, and doing a great job so far.  Check it out:

My llama was upgraded to an Albino Llama?!?
***Thanks, guys!!!***  *virtual high-five*  <3
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......

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, thanks so much!!!  I love yours as well!  They make me so happy!
I lived in Japan for a while and am so impressed with how well you've nailed their "PSA" style of cartooning, which I love!
Please keep up the good work, and PLEASE NEVER GIVE UP ON JESUS!!!  <3
Cheers, friend!
