Jeff Dee's Empire Of Petal Throne Artwork Recreation Kickstarter



 Jeff Dee is recreating his artwork Dragon magazine with a Empire of the Petal Throne twist! To quote the kickstarter. 
" From This time, I'm going all the way back to my roots. The illustrations I did in Professor M.A.R. Barker's article, "Legions of the Petal Throne Painting Guide" in Dragon Magazine Issue 6 were my first professionally published work - ever! This happened way back in 1977, before I'd even started art school."

He would actually deal with the artwork but as he would do them today! Here's an example 
In his words That's a soldier of the Legion of Sérqu, Sword of the Empire, based on Professor Barker's own drawing from page 74 of the original Empire of the Petal Throne (EPT) rulebook. 
There's a huge selection of Dee's artwork from Empire right over Here
I'm very excited to see this part of the kickstarter  
"One might ask how I propose to create accurate drawings of these creatures. Good question! The Tékumel Foundation has graciously offered to make some of Professor Barker's previously unpublished drawings available to me for reference. Which is freakin' awesome.
Where possible, I've included links to renditions of these creatures by later artists. Brett Slocum's GURPS Tékumel Conversion site also provides short text descriptions of all of these creatures and more."

This kickstarter bares watching! I can't wait to see where this is going to go.  I'll keep everyone posted! You can read more right over Here
