About the Piece:


A few years back, a gentleman walked into our booth at the Ohio Renaissance Festival, and expressed disappointment that I no longer drew dwarves. He had purchased every dwarf drawing of mine, and wanted more! I told him that typical D&D fantasy character art wasn't really what I did any longer, but I could see that he was a little crushed.

I had an offer for him. I would do an original piece of artwork for him, and he would buy the original, but then I would have prints available to sell to others like him that really dig my dwarves. So I sat down with my sketch book and started working. I couldn't finish it by the end of the Faire day, but he said his friend would return a few weeks and he could pick it up then.

Later that night, I really got into the piece, and the email that I received a few weeks later after it was delivered confirmed that I had done well.


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work has won numerous awards around the country, including the prestigious Chesley Award in 2006, for Best Monochrome Unpublished for his piece Nightmare.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
