A 60 ton quickdraw mech standing guard on a street corner someplace named samantha in the taurian concordat. Was another quarter pager for the battletech field manual periphery book under catalyst game labs.
I did some illustrations for Mike V. for cthulhutech some years back, and he invited me that year to come to gencon. At the time his company had partnered up with catalyst and was sharing the booth. I was lucky enough to have taken my laptop and wacom with me, and drew some mech stuff on the spot. Catalyst liked my stuff, and within a few months i was doing stuff for them too. Everything since has been either additional work for them, or other projects that spring up out of nowhere and contact me because of my gallery here or other work they've seen in print. So more than anything, luck, but also putting yourself at the right place and time i guess.
