I did my first job for WOtC in 1999 after showing my portfolio to the art director of the Legends of the 5 Rings collectable card game, a popular WOtC product at that time. I completed work for six separate L5R releases, (although one set did not contain my cards) from 1999 to 2001, totaling in 23 illustrations.

More recently (2008), I accepted an offer from WOtC to do several NPC portraits for the Star Wars RPG website. It was a lot of fun to do Star Wars art again after all these years (see the WEG page) and I hope that they liked them well enough to give me more work in the future.
