Random Yelping!

Dan Barker Tue, 24/05/2011 – 08:52

I’m not sure if I’m a good fit for an art blog as I am officially the Laziest Artist Simon Knows. So, what this will mainly be will be my random musings on marginal things.

There may even be some artwork*.

Note: I am the Art Greg; my artistic ideas about Glorantha are fickle, and tend to be contrary. I don’t subscribe to a lot of what has now become canon**.

* only if I can overcome my own indolence, of course.

** I’m very proud of my Babeestor Gori  player, who scaled CliffHome to petition CragSpider…  in the dark & the rain… while 5 months pregnant. And so was CragSpider.

Incredible !
Dan has now a blog, make more than a post per day, and plan to make new art for future publication !
I am probably in a dream.

You know, I’m pretty sure I HAVE poked Dan in the eye…

No I don’t have a gallery, as I’m too embarrassed by my lack of skill to actually put on together ūüėČ .

I’ll leave the CragSpider story for when I post pics of her.

More art, pleaaaase! Do you have a gallery, somewhere on the Net?
And I’d like to know a bit more about that Babeester Gori of yours. What did she ask Cragspider?

Well I love Dan’s art, but as I have no corporate axe to grind (Babs Gor or otherwise). I will look forward to the random marginalia instead!!!!!!

Laziest artist… hmmm… That Yarb Nomis guy used to be mighty hard to motivate too. As for my little brother Dan, he still owes me some art for Tales 14, but that ship has sailed. ūüôā I remember some of those golden moments from Convulsion 1996. Ah, to be young again, instead of just having to fall back on being immature, which is a far poorer substitute. I suggest we give Dan a drop-dead deadline of Continuum 2012 for all past due art assignments. That has a certain epic “finality” ring to it….

One of them got used, the Lunars, but it is sooo wrong I’m gonna have to go and redraw it. Damn my lazy perfectionism.

Dan may be one of hardest Glorantha artists to motivate, but when he hits his mojo then the world rejoices…

At present we are beating Dan into completing a project he started 15 years ago, I saw the sketches back at Convulsion 1996 and was so envious I nearly poked Dan in the eye. Some of these sketches were published in a nearly completed form in Tarsh Wars by Nick Brooke and Chris Gidlow. I am praying to every God, Spirit and Saint I know to see them finished!
