This project is the fourth installment of my ongoing effort to re-create my old TSR / Dungeons & Dragons artwork – which was reportedly destroyed* by some thoughtless functionary to make room in TSR’s files. Last time, I re-created 12 drawings that I did for the Norse chapter of the original 1980 edition of a book called ‘Deities and Demigods’. This time around, I’m re-creating 12 of my drawings from AD&D module S3 – Expedition to the Barrier Peaks! Eventually, I plan to make a whole collection my re-created TSR illustrations available as an art book.

The drawings will be posted to my DeviantArt page (jeffdee.deviantart.com) as soon as they’re completed, so you can see how they turned out. You can see the re-creations I've done so far here.

BONUS! Everyone who pledges $50 or more will also receive a signed, postcard-sized print of a re-creation of this drawing - 'Shakedown' - from B2 The Keep on the Borderlands!

Listen to an interview including a discussion of my efforts to re-create the lost TSR art here.

This project is dedicated to Gary Gygax, the father of role-playing games, and the man without whom my life would have been much, much less fun. Thanks, Gary!

*Note: A few pieces are known to have survived. In most cases, however, there's no way for me to know which ones. I am therefor re-creating everything. Huzzah!
