About the Pieces:
Another original piece completed for Michael's Sagaborn Roleplaying system, The Lord's Keep of Seahaven, started off as a completely different piece for Uteria. Michael was about to publish his Ferryport Adventures module, and needed a drawing of The Keep of Ferryport, and he asked me to illustrate it.
So I started working on the piece, and when I showed it to him about 90% complete, I apparently drew the Keep of steroids. He showed me the map of Ferryport, and pointed to the building I was supposed to draw. Mine was much bigger, on a much bigger hill, overlooking a much bigger town on the waterfront. Oh, and I drew a bridge in a town that only uses ferries to cross the river.
So while this piece was not published in the Ferryport Adventures module, it became The Lord's Keep of Seahaven, and will be featured in a future Sagaborn module.
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work has won numerous awards around the country, including the prestigious Chesley Award in 2006, for Best Monochrome Unpublished for his piece Nightmare.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 http://paulbielaczyc.com/.
