Featured Artist(s)

The Setting Sourceweb utilizes the artistic talents of several RPG artists, as well as repurposing numerous historical artistic pieces that fall within the Public Domain. I have included an End Notes section that details the soure of each of these pieces where available.

Peter Szmer; It has been my good fortune to acquire the services of this very talented artist from England. You can view Peter's online gallery at http://graphcraft.deviantart.com/. My experience working with Peter has been nothing short of impressive. He is able to both accept art direction correctly, as well as provide substantive creative solutions himself. I can recommend Peter to other publishers looking to enlist new talent with the full confidence of my personal/proffesional experience working with him.

Peter's art graces both the Sourceweb, as well as many of the Usherwood Adventures.

Hugh Vogt; Hugh is an accomplished comic-style artist whose works have graced projects for Wizards of the Coast, Hero Games, Twilight Showcase, and Cemetery Dance Magazine. You can view Hugh's online gallery at http://www.hughvogt.com/. Hugh's art will make its Usherwood Publishing debut in the adventure The Manuscripts of Edric Mabillia.
