WHO I AM AND WHERE I GET MY INSPIRATION
My name is Justin David Russell. I am a freelance illustrator who loves table-top roleplaying games, specifically early editions of Dungeons & Dragons. My goal as a creative person is to maintain the vision and scope of classical fantastic RPG illustration in the busy modern world. The best way I can share that with you is to provide art and stories, much like I do with my maps through my affiliated Patreon campaign, Random Encounters.

THE PURPOSE OF THIS PATREON
Fantasy illustration is my life. It is the only thing I have ever wanted to do as a career. My next move is to attend the Illustration Master Class. You can help me by pledging here. Funds also go toward helping me purchase art supplies and pay odd bills.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
  • Adventure: My art revolves around adventure fantasy, especially the light-hearted fare popular up until about 20-30 years ago. In collaboration with my Random Encounters Maps project, I will be releasing a PDF adventure booklet each month for patrons. One of my images from the month will grace the book's cover.
  • Original Art: I will be working on paintings and drawings in traditional media, addressing themes and ideas I care about, providing a variety of fantastic content to inspire you!
  • Classic Fantasy: Brave knights, fearsome dragons, holy warriors, daring thieves, and mighty wizards will adorn my art.
  • Rewards: As a 'thank you' for pledging, I will offer a variety of rewards ranging from original art, access to my patron-only feed, live-streams, system neutral adventures for your favourite rpg, behind-the-scenes peaks into my process and techniques, first refusal o finished work put up for sale, early knowledge of upcoming projects, patron-involvement in my creative process, and more! If this takes off, I will be adding prints to the list of rewards, and possibly run Kickstarters to fund sketch- and art books.
  • Crossover with Broadsword Magazine: Some of you may be familiar with the Broadsword Kickstarter I am working with DM Dave. I am supplying cover and interior art for it, while Dave provides written content. You will see all of those images appear here, first!

HOW TO GET STARTED
First, you roll 3d6 six times… oops, wrong campaign!
  1. Do not pledge more than you can afford and make sure you want to be a patron.
  2. Figure out how much you want to pledge per month.
  3. Remember how much you pledged. Write it down somewhere so you’re not surprised each month.
  4. Have fun and, GAME ON!

THANKS!
I want to extend a personal 'THANK YOU' to all patrons for their generous support. I love tabletop role-playing. This provides me a way to give back for the years of inspiration and fun I have experienced with this hobby.

'THE SECRET OF FORSAKEN PEAK' MEGADELVE PROJECT


DM Dave and I are collaborating on a massive megadelve that will contain a fully fleshed out setting and multi-level dungeon, titled 'The Secret of Forsaken Peak.' It will appear in monthly installments over about a year's worth of issues of Broadsword,as one of its four featured adventures.
