About the Piece:

The Guardian of the Gate was a commission for a fellow director of JordanCon. She wanted 3 pieces of art for one of her Art Show teams, and wanted me to illustrate Cerberus along with an Aiel saying from Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time"A shaping stone, to make us... a testing ground, to prove our worth... and a punishment for the sin." Beyond this phrase from the books, there is no other connection to the books series (A good one, mind you!).

After completing the 3 original pieces for her, I then digitally combined them into a single piece of art, so that others could enjoy prints of the work.



About the Artist:

Paul and his brother Michael opened Aradani Studios in 2002, selling both their artwork and costuming as they travelled all across the US. Paul’s medium of choice is charcoal, a passion he discovered in college. He loves the fluidity of it, the ease of moving it across the page with a simple gesture, and on the flipside, the challenge of it, such a simple gesture can also erase hours of painstaking detail. Paul’s work has won numerous awards around the country, including the prestigious Chesley Award in 2006, for Best Monochrome Unpublished for his piece Nightmare. He currently resides in Nashville, TN, where he, his brother, and sister continue to expand and build their elf ear empire. You can see his artwork at
