Hero class Trader fires! by Drell-7 Hero class Trader fires! by Drell-7
A Freetrader returns fire against pirates. This is one of the pen and ink drawings I did for the Traveller RPG in the 80's. In a fit of nostalgia I've been going through some of my old stuff, and decided to post a few of what I think are the best.

Pen and ink on Strathmore Bristol Board (gasp!)

Thanks for having a look!

Terrific!  I love this kinda stuff; done a lot of it myself (your style here is very similar to my own), mostly on Strathmore Bristol Board, using Koh-I-Noor Rapidographs.
I've not been drawing of late--well, haven't done anything for several months, in fact--but this piece makes me want to get back to the ole drawing board, so thanks for the inspiration.

I always loved the pen and ink that went with Traveller. It was clean and evocative. The lines were simple and elegant and told the story of the Traveller Universe clearly and simply.

Wonderful! - Damme, I remember this illustration.

The RPG world is all the richer for you having been a part of it.

Loving all the old Traveller art....it was a game that sorely lacked visuals, but you made a huge impact. So many times I've heard from my players..."oh so THAT's what it looks like!"

Superb work, and glad to be able to find you here and thank you!

i remeber seeing this in the day - as good now as it was then. Love the composition, and the action in this pic.
