Earlier this week I drew up a little character shot of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, the series of stories and novels by Fritz Leiber that, along with Conan and many others, make up the "Sword and Sorcery" genre. It was really influential on me and was actually one of the things that inspired Dawn of Time. I doubt many would make the connection, but even though there are very few swords, very little sorceries, and right now Dawn is riding a motorcycle in the distant future (1999?), I actually consider Dawn a "Sword & Sorcery" kind of story. Anyway, here is that picture, just in case there are any fans out there. And if not, check 'em out, the whole series has been reprinted recently (though the old editions are cheaper if you can find 'em, and have better covers if you ask me).

I might also mention I'm available for commissions again!
