Over the almost eleven-year history of Little Fears, I’ve had the opportunity to work with some pretty amazing illustrators. A few of them have been gracious enough to keep working with me (looking at you, Veronica and Doug) and I will keep giving them work as long as they’ll have me.
But they get busy and bigger books require a lot of art (even if it doesn’t always look like the book has much) and, sometimes, I like to inject some new blood into the setting. Now is one of those times.
This means I’m looking for illustrators. While the Campfire Tales due out this summer are spoken for artwise, the upcoming Book 3 will require a couple dozen illustrations most likely and I have more products on the docket for 2013. So if you are an illustrator, email me! If you have a friend who’s an illustrator, tell him or her to email me! You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include links to online portfolios instead of attachments. If you don’t have a site, send no more than three attachments in mid- to lo-rez jpeg format. I’m hiring for a horror game about kids and monsters so images skewed toward that will likely stick out, but I can squint so if you don’t have any in the horror genre, send something in a style you’d like to work in.
I can’t respond to all but if I have an opening that I think fits you, I’ll definitely be in touch! And if I don’t get a hold of you for this project, I may well be in touch on another.
If you could help spread the word, I’d really appreciate it.

The tenth anniversary of Little Fears is July 5th and I’ll be launching the PDF of Happy Birthday, Little Fears on that day (with print soon to follow). You can grab your copy after they come in for full price, sure, but you still have a week left to pre-order the PDF, print, or print + PDF combo pack and save some cash!
To entice those of you on the fence, I’ve attached a section of the new cover, by LFNE illustrator Grumbleputty.
For details on the pre-order (including links to get yours), see this post right here.

With two weeks until its May 25th release, I figured now was a good time to show off some of Book 2: Among the Missing. The past month has been a blur of writing, art direction, and layout as that big idea I had a while back solidifies as an actual, honest-to-goodness product. And the pre-orders have served as great motivation to keep my head down and going forward as more and more people put their money where my mouth is.
I have a great art team on this book. Veronica V. Jones and Doug Snook (Grumbleputty) return from the main book and I’ve added George Cotronis and Jeff Preston to the mix as well, doing the considerable number of chapter intro images.
I’ll post a couple PDF excerpts as we get closer to launch but, for now, take a look at two of the characters Grumbleputty did for the book. First is a member of the Army of St. Nicholas called Walter Highways. The second is called simply The Cat and it’s one feisty feline you don’t want to cross your path.
I hope you dig these peeks at the art and come back for more previews in the coming weeks.
Book 2: Among the Missing is on track for PDF release on May 25th with print to follow soon after. The pre-order ends tonight but you’ll be still be able to order the physical book after, and pick up the PDF anytime once it hits DriveThruRPG and RPGNow.
