The Hammer is down! The pedal is to the metal! The gears are greased and the Eagle has landed!
I love what I do for a living. I get to be an explorer, an inventor, a biologist. An adventurer. Through my years playing D&D, working for TSR, Wizards of the Coast, and then freelancing, I had the privilege of revealing wonders to people who share my love of the fantastic. I dissected dragons to see how they work. I found friends and companions—from spacefarers in distant solar systems, to pirates and thieves and magicians, to a certain dark elf. Whole cultures, entire races, emerged into the light. Along the road I discovered a world of my own, which is still unveiling. Many of you have been with me every step of the way. Your appreciation of my efforts made it all possible.
Found Worlds will be a record of our excavations together, a compilation of every world we’ve uncovered. I want to put it all in this book, and that's why we're here. It’s going to be big, and I want to share art and process for everything from the beginning of my career to all my finished paintings—Dungeons & Dragons, Drizzt, Magic: The Gathering, Warcraft, The Evertide, and countless other realms. I'm asking for your help to make it happen. Are you ready to take another journey with me?
