Ever since I got this computer right here four years ago, the one I'm using to type in this entry, I have been developing a portfolio and sending them to companies for freelance work. An industry I have always wanted to work on is the role-playing game industry. There is a list of companies that I send my portfolio to every year, in a cycle. Most ignore my e-mails. Some like Chaosium wrote back with polite rejection letters. Very rarely, I get an e-mail asking for a quotation like the one from Final Sword Productions. But so far, I've not gotting any hits from any of the gaming companies.

Last week, it all changed.

Thanks to my good friend Gary Astleford, Stan! from The Game Mechanics contacted me with work. As of today, I am officially working on 6 quarter-page black and white illustrations for Future Player's Companion, written by Gary and Rodney "Moridin" Thompson of SWRPGNetwork.

I am very excited at the prospect of having my work published in an RPG book, and as I promised Stan! and Gary I will do my very best to get the work done on time and of acceptable quality by the deadline of June 20. Again, thanks to Stan! for the opportunity, and thanks to Gary for being a great pal as he's been the last three years or so.

In case anyone's wondering, yes, there is an exclamation mark in Stan!'s name.
