Nothing sells better than nostalgia and I do a brisk trade doing renderings of RPG characters from my “Elvis years” of the 1980s. Most of the time people are looking for reworked BattleTech or Star Trek figures, but Ged Trias threw me a curve ball and asked for a marker rendering of Merchant Captain Alexander Jamison who appeared in 1982’s Traveller Book.
It was an interesting project. On one hand I wanted to stay close to the design philosophy/motif I’d established all those years ago – but at the same time I wanted to reflect my improved thinking and skills. I hold fast to Michelangelo Buonoratti’s model of professional development ( his last words were ‘I have so much to learn”)
