Just a quick one for you! I am still working on the art for One of Us! and I still expect a winter production on the new game but in the meantime I took a break to do something I talked about for years. Start a web comic and a children's / young adult book series based on my cats Ash and Raimi. I have nearly completed all the art work for the first book and will launch a kickstarter and a small indi production right away. Then its back to One of Us! full time to try and have a finished product by early 2020. Make sure to follow my facebook pages for when the comic launches and the story books become available.
Hello everyone! Stopping by to share some new illustration work for my new portfolio.
As I mentioned I am creating about 20 new illustrations from now until 2020 for my new portfolio. I have put my time in the last 10 years since college etc and have come to a level of skill that I think can be commercially viable. I will be shipping the new portfolio world wide in search of as much commercial work that I can come across. My goal is for my professional status to feature only licensed and approved work so art prints are not going to be available for any of my portfolio examples.
So in the interest in simplifying my life I am merging and purging all my social media accounts and sub accounts for Grimoire Quest, Anathema and the Art of Tom Savage under the official LLC Tom Savage Studios brand. that means I will be creating a single market for all of my work under one umbrella. I have children's books, comic, and more board games that are all going to be marketed under the brand Savage Studios LLC.
With that will come new video workshops, apparel, posters, prints, books, and much much more.
It's time to see what I can do if I self sustain myself with my work. ( no I'm not quitting my jobs, I'm not crazy ) but this will make it easier for me to effectively market my work in once place so that I can put more time into making new work.
Check back this weekend for the new branding!
What a year! 2017 was a bit crazy. I got married, Grimoire Quest was completed, funded and arrived.
So what is in store for 2018-2019? A LOT!
First I am working on a new board game. This will potentially feature a collaboration with a VERY iconic artist. Someone who was a big influence on myself. I can't disclose more right now thought.
So for now, I am finishing up the last of the Kickstarter rewards for backers and making shipping arrangements for the overseas supporters then I will be taking a couple week break to do some spring cleaning. Speaking of spring cleaning- Anathema #2 is SOLD OUT.
I will be ordering a small second print edition for those who missed out, but that also means I really need to dedicate some time to issue #3.
Paintings, paintings, paintings! I have a lot of new work coming out this summer. I am doing a massive update to my portfolio and submitting more work to official license holders.
Expect to see pieces for Labyrinth, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Evil Dead, and more!
For now here are my two most recent submissions.
Legacy: A Tribute to Carrie (30x40 acrylic on illustration board)
Luke Skywalker A Jedi's Journey. (20x30 acrylic on illustration board)
Hi Folks, I put together a video blog to give you an update on the shipping and delivery of Grimoire Quest as well as some close ups of the full game art work!
If you don't want to sit through the video the basic of the information is this:
-The game will not arrive before Christmas, sadly.
-It will arrive in the states sometimes in early January
-Due to the crammed schedule of January fulfillment will begin late January/early February.
-I have started creating the custom sketches for backers!
-Also not mentioned in the video, The art book will be shipping separately in most cases and is expected in the Spring due to a financial limitation in the interest of a better quality product than initially expected.
