So, first and foremost. This week I’ll be working at New York Comic Con in NYC. I’ll be at the Fanboy Collectibles booth 2937 (and selling some artwork as well.)

Also, I have my first game going through kickstarter right now. Day one and we’re already moving along toward our goal. Deathbot Derby on Kickstarter.

While I could go into all the fine details on the game, and how fun it was to make the artwork for it, you’re better off just clicking the link and checking out the reviews we’ve gotten on it as well as seeing all the ins and outs of the game itself.
It’s a lot of game in a little box, and it’s fun.
If you cant help fund it, please share the link as that gets it seen by more people who may very well be interested in turning their friend’s robots into scrap.

Last but not least, just got my copy of Caustic Comics Insane Tales From The Dead featuring my piece EveVI. There is a lot of cool stuff in this book and the print quality on it is excellent. Proud to be a part of it.

If you want to order your copy, go to www.InsaneTalesFromTheDead.com while supplies last as there are a number of limited edition covers for this book.

That’s all the updates for now. See you at NYCC, and will be working on some more cool projects on twitch after this event is over. www.Twitch.TV/JamesGroelingArt

Spent a good portion of my evening tonight in the Microsoft offices in Times Square, NYC. I was Working with Zack of Royal N Games (go follow their Facebook and Twitter) to Promote the game we’ve been working on, Deathbot Derby. keep an eye out for the hashtag #TestYourMetal

Long ago, disgruntled fans mourned the cancelation of their favorite robot fighting T.V. show, and took to the underground. Void of caution or regard for public safety, contenders began to build incredible machines of destruction and pit them against each other in one on one death matches. And so was born…
The DeathBot Derby!

In DeathBot Derby players build their bots using a quick card drafting mechanism and then face off in an ever changing arena. They will have to strategically move and attack their opponent to gain the tactical advantage. The winning DeathBot goes home a champion, and the loser goes back to the scrap heap they came from.

Deathbot Derby is in the last of it’s Beta stage as we are ironing out the final details, and will be running a kickstarter to fund the game in October of 2016. All in all tonight’s event was to share what we’ve been making with some gamers, and we were fortunate enough to have a lot of people swing by the booth to check it out, play, and have good times. The event had over 700 people in attendance, and so many various games ranging from board and card games, to mobile apps, and full on console and computer games, all from independent companies. The variety of options to play was incredible, but more so was the top quality of a lot of the games there. On top of that, almost every single person I saw there seemed to be happy and having a great time (gamers and the game creators), so definitely a successful evening. We may be doing another event with the Playcrafting group in October. (Be sure to follow Royal N Games on their social media pages for announcements regarding that)

Some time ago I was hired by Run Amok Productions to create a number of quarter page, grayscale illustrations for an upcoming RPG book. Now that the book has been published, I can share both the images and the link for purchase. This is a D20 based book, so can be used with a number of games, predominantly D&D.

Alvaro Snegg & the Bellringer Brothers

A trait which the Bellringer’s, a pair of pit fighting champion brothers, have been using to their advantage.

Captain Ahbram and the Freebooters of the Cacophonous Chantey

Definitely was a fun project to work on, with a company that I look forward to creating more images for in the future. If you are interested in either downloading a sample or of acquiring the full book, simply follow the enclosed link.

So here’s a few images from a project I worked on last year for The Hell’s Kitchen Artist’s association, site here. The theme and central unifying image were from my end, then the other art pieces were integrated digitally to show the work of people partaking in the studio tours. From what I understand they are re-using the imagery this year for the studio tours as well, and there’s a brief story by yours truly in the upcoming magazine.

Anyway, here are some shots.
