Chicago Golden Demon Lounge!


Hey all!

Greetings and apologies from the East Coast! The apologies are for not having enough time to prepare my web posts before heading down to visit my inlaws in Nova Scotia - especially since I promised good pics of my golden demon pieces. Well family comes first and the pics just didnt get taken. I will resolve this upon returning home. In the meantime if you want to see my work youc an come and see it at Games Day Chicago!!!!!I will be there as a guest int he Golden Demon lounge area along with 14 other top rate miniature artists (including members of both TNA and Team Montreal as well as other non affiliated painters).
