Welcome back to the 80’s!

Hey folks!
Sometimes I do things just to see if I can do them. In this instance, I wanted to try replicating an 80’s anime style. Yup, welcome to a time when anime was still an obscure niche in the U.S. A time you couldn’t engage in the hobby without looks of bewilderment from your friends and family.

There’s a reason they had to put ” Not For Kids” on the front of those old VHS tapes at the video store.

And there’s a shirt if you want to confuse your friends at the next convention. Regale them with stories of a show that does not exist!


Large posters are now available! ( And some other stuff. )

Hello everyone,

The Death of a Baron!

Greetings all,

Today we have the Taurian fighter pilot scene from the recent Tex Talks Battletech Warhammer episode. Special thanks to Editor Mike for reading my mind on this one. The scene really looked awesome.

I daydreamed a lot of various fighter attack scenes for this episode. Alas, production time did not allow such lofty aspirations. But, we did get this scene in. I’m fairly pleased with it.

More Tex Talks Battletech art soon!


TTBT Concordat Battleline

Hello everyone,

Let’s get back to the Tex Talks Battletech Warhammer episode art. Today we have the mighty concordat battleline.

I reused the Sabre fighters in the lower right corner. Unfortunately, I don’t recall what the bomber squadrons are modeled after. I did a lot of research on AeroSpace fighters in production before the Case Amber incident. Sadly, it appears, that I’ve forgotten some of the information.

More art soon!

Tex talks Battletech Baron battle line.

Hello all,

Today I have the Baron battle line for you.

Editor Mike really did a great job on the space battle scene. His laser game is much stronger than mine.

Some trivia, the Aerospace squadrons are Thunderbird bombers in the background and Sparrowhawks in the foreground. From my cursory research, it appears that dropships are used as carriers for BT space battles. Even large warships only host a small number of aerospace assets. From what I can tell there are no capital class carriers. I find that a bit strange. 

More art soon,
