Jeff Dee's S3 – Expedition to the Barrier Peaks Artwork

 S3 – Expedition to the Barrier Peaks is one of my favorite modules. It crosses lots of lines enabling one to get into both science fantasy & fantasy themed D&D without very much prep work. I've run this as part of a regular campaign & to see the artwork recreated is very exciting. Anyway take a stroll over to Jeff Dee's Kick Start page & see what he's up to Here

This project is the fourth installment of my ongoing effort to re-create my old TSR / Dungeons & Dragons artwork – which was reportedly destroyed* by some thoughtless functionary to make room in TSR’s files. Last time, I re-created 12 drawings that I did for the Norse chapter of the original 1980 edition of a book called ‘Deities and Demigods’. This time around, I’m re-creating 12 of my drawings from AD&D module S3 – Expedition to the Barrier Peaks! Eventually, I plan to make a whole collection my re-created TSR illustrations available as an art book.
The drawings will be posted to my DeviantArt page ( as soon as they’re completed, so you can see how they turned out. You can see the re-creations I've done so far here.
Listen to an interview including a discussion of my efforts to re-create the lost TSR art here.
This project is dedicated to Gary Gygax, the father of role-playing games, and the man without whom my life would have been much, much less fun. Thanks, Gary!
*Note: A few pieces are known to have survived. In most cases, however, there's no way for me to know which ones. I am therefor re-creating everything. Huzzah!
