Fighting Fantasy and Fiend Folio Artist Russ Nicholson Starts Blog!

As readers know, I am a big fan of the Fighting Fantasy gamebooks and Russ Nicholson's art is one of the key reasons for that fandom. His dark and gritty line-work carefully balances grim imagery with humor and is indicative of the art typical of the British illustrators of White Wolf magazines in the 80s. Nicholson, and John Blanche, added a rough edged quality to the sleek and cartoony illustrations of the American "Basic" D&D artists Jeff Dee and Bill Willingham.

If you love Dark Creepers, Revenants, and the Githyanki, then Russ Nicholson is your man.
