About the Piece:
Mike and I were redesigning our bumper stickers, and I decided that it was time to use some photo references for my popular piece, Modern Magic. This version 2.0 debutted at Chattacon 2009, where Mike and I were the Artist Guests of Honor. The response to the updated version was quite positive, and so I have decided to make the transition on my website as well.
Seen the movie Wizards? You should, it is quite amusing and entertaining. At the time of drawing this, I had not seen the movie. This was a request from a friend while we played a session of D&D in college.
I had my sketch book out, and my friend asked, “Hey, can you draw a wizard with a six shooter?”
Confused, I looked at him and inquired, “Why would I draw a wizard with a gun?”
And without missing a beat, “Not just any gun, it has to be a six shooter,” he responded.
At this point, I stopped asking, and simply did his request. And I am very glad that I did.
The original is in the collection of John Williams.
