Visual Artists of the OSR (and others)

This is another of my collection/discovery posts which always end up breeding massive degrees of resentment.

All of the praise goes to the contributors in this thread on G+.

I have not put in people who are pure cartographers like M Randy, Mike Schley Gus L or Dyson Logos. Vandal J Arden I couldn't download your image from google so have classified you with the cartographers. All artists featured are in alphabetical order based on Surname.

(If someone else would like to do the Cartographers version of this, that would be great.)

As always, if anyone wants to be taken off or have their entry changed then let me know.

Moreven Brushwood

http://moreven.deviantart.com/

Recommended by Beloch Shrike; "probably doesn't consider herself an "OSR Artist," but she plays in OSR games, prefers OSR games over other types of games, and makes art for my OSR books. So I figure she qualifies."

    1. I have added you Micheal but I have put in a more vertical image than the ones you linked to as those wide horizontal images don't show up to best effect in the blogger format. I hope that's ok.

  18. I'm flattered to be part of your collection, thank you!

    You can put my surname Puerta if you want to, it has been made public several times and I think that eventually I'll add it to my blogs.

    About my recent involvement with OSR projects, I'm one of the illustrators of a thematic bestiary set in a world of floating islands called "Criaturas del Vacío Celeste" "Creatures of the Celestial Void"

    You can see more here, but it is only in Spanish.
