Jeff Dee (and that’s a Wikipedia entry link) is a recognised RPG artist. He co-created the first superhero RPG (Villains and Vigilantes) and he worked for TSR to help illustrate a number of books for AD&D. He did covers for adventure modules and interior artwork. Wikipedia suggests he’s best known for his Deities & Demigods, Egyptian and Norse pantheons.
Did you know that pretty much all of this artwork has been destroyed?
Dee has a Kickstarter to re-create these classics.
As of posting, this Kickstarter is brand new. For a short while, I was the big backer until someone came in and pledged hundreds to support the cause.
Pledges start at $5 if you want a print. If you want something signed then that’s $20 – but $20 for a Jeff Dee signed bit of art is great value. He’s only asking for $2,000.
You can see samples of Dee’s style on deviant Art. It really is the sort of early D&D art you might except – especially the line drawings.
This project doesn’t feel like a standard Kickstarter. This one has some extra historic crediblity to it.
