45/52 - Ranger

This is Borlo. He is the ranger in my D&D group. His favorite pastimes include being thrown over pits of spikes and being strangled by bugbears.

44/52 - Knight

I think I was reading "Best Served Cold" by Joe Abercrombie and looking at Soul Caliber art books and thus: ladyknight.

Another one of my short stories.

43/52 - Kobold

A perennial favorite D&D monster. Anyone who's ever started as a level 1 character in Dungeons and Dragons has assuredly mown down a field of Kobolds in their day. 

Kobolds are also trickster sprites in German mythology, but those ones don't looks like little dragon-goblin jerks so who cares.

42/52 - Fighter

This is the Fighter from my D&D campaign, whose name is John Rhys-Davies. He's kinda like a Kratos made out of rocks. He is one of the strongest characters in the party, and as such, it is my job as DM to try to kill him.

41/52 - Lich

I think I'll always have a soft spot for skull-faces.

40/52 - Captain Falcon

Captain Falcon drives race cars in space and has hands and feet made out of fire.

39/52 - Mindflayer

In the Dungeons and Dragons universe, Mindlfayers are a race of brain-eating Cthulhus that serve giant floating brains in underground caves. They traditionally have octopus faces and I think they're supposed to physically eat brains? Like with a beak and stuff? But since they're essentially Lovecraft monsters, I thought it would be more fitting for them to just turn people insane by being super scary and feed of their psychic energy. The end.

38/52 - Dohvakiin

Some may call this junk me I call them treasures looking to protect yourself or deal some damage gods be praised

37/52 - Hobgoblin

In my last D&D session a bunch of hobgoblins teleported into a room because someone -- I'm not saying who -- said that he didn't want to work as a slave in the necromancer's tower.

36/52 - Archer

I played D&D like five days ago and I'm already depressed that we don't get to play again for another month.

34/53 - Tattoo

One of my favorites from the set. Back anatomy is super weird.

Network World Outlook 2012

Last month I worked on a series of small drawings for Network World Magazine's Outlook on 2012 issue, which outlines some upcoming trends or movements in networking over the coming year. They go with a themed issue every year and (lucky for me) this year's was nautical. This top one is on looming hazards to your security.

What will you do with virtualization this year?

Are you ready for the flat network?

How will your company deal with consumerization?

I don't understand, either.

33/52 - Asari

From Mass Effect, my favorite game series of this console generation.

32/52 - Snake

Solid Snake is a great role model.

31/52 - Brock

Brock manages a Rock gym, which I figure might be full of rocks? Thus, rock-climbing stuff.

30/52 - Conan

I think I've mentioned before on this blog how I'm a huge fan of Robert E. Howard's Conan stories. I would've loved to have seen Michael Shannon from Boardwalk Empire take on the role, but what are you gonna do? At least we'll always have Arnold's amazing commentary on the Conan the Barbarian dvd.
