Greetings, habitués of the Wandering Shop. As Mick Jagger likes to sing, "Please allow me to #introduce myself…"
I'm the #author / #illustrator of a tabletop role-playing game (#TTRPG) who enjoys posting the odd pencil #sketch, #ink outline, or full-#color #illustration that eventually became #art for the game —plus a few that never made it in.
Émigré from another instance.
Enjoy a pencil #sketch of Jinx's complicated brother, Morris Jones, AKA Mojo. He's "master" to an extra-dimensional fiend trapped the body of one of his magic act's white bunnies.
From the title:
"Jones grew up learning there were some things one simply didn’t ask in the Midnight Cabaret, such as how a trick really worked, a performer’s home town, and what Uncle Ernie did on his nights off that sometimes brought him home with bloody knuckles…"

SomaFM is amazing. Commercial-free, listener-supported radio stations that are just a standard stream (any shoutcast client works, and they embed a web player on their page). They've been hosting DEF CON Radio for quite a while.
They're awesome, donation-based, and currently badly in need of funds. Like them? Please consider donating a bit. Never heard of them? Check it out, you'll probably find an interesting station or two.
Enjoy a pencil #sketch of my first attempt to redraw Jinny Ecks, AKA "Jinx". From the original title:
"To most of the world, the Midnight Cabaret is a traveling variety show blending the US Vaudeville tradition with an old-fashioned circus sideshow, its ancient acts given new life through stylish theatrics. That’s also what Jinny and her brother Morris grew up believing about their extended, chosen family of performers."
... and now for the full #color version of that bottle, the perfect temporary holding cell for all sorts of magical monsters.
Bottles like this one get a lot of use by Ms. Belle Conti, traveling musician and monster hunter.
