A TSR illo:  This one takes place in a civilazation loosely based on the Byzantine Empire.  The foreground figure has been awakened in the middle of the night to find his servant murdered by a mysterious albino.

Illo for TSR: Evil Puppet.  This was from a series of illos of demonic puppets.  It's a tiny Pinocchio with a straight razor, fun!

This was done as a postcard for Stratolab, a "computer day camp" where they teach kids to use fun computer programs.  Done entirely in Painter IX.

Illo for TSR (the guys who originally did Dungeons and Dragons, before Wizards of the Coast):  This is an Arabian fantasy type scene featuring a female fighter who reacts as the wall near her opens to reveal a genie.  What possessed her to sit in that demon-shaped chair, I have no idea.  I don't write 'em, folks.

Throughout my career  I've done odd little "commercial art" jobs.  Jumpy the Jester is the mascot for a costume shop in New York called Halloween Adventure.
