Why: Artistry related to gaming is my passion. I particularly enjoy customizing models. If you are interested in seeing any of my works in progress, visit my blog at How to Lose at 40k.
Greetings! Welcome to Silver Gargoyle Productions.
Below are answers to some of the questions you may have about the company.
Update: 7 Jan 2015. Working on Eldar and Pathfinder commissions.
Who: For the most part, SGP is JJ. I've been painting and playing table top wargames since '91. Having a completely painted army on the field is satisfaction by itself. When my opponent leans in to look at my paint job and says great army, I've won. Ethic of having a completely painted army is my forte and my specialty is free-hand customization.
What: I paint models, most often for wargaming and D&D but will happily do any. I also build terrains, paint banners, design stencil art.
Where: Much of the work I do at my home in St Anthony, MN. I also do some things at Fantasy Flight Games, in the workshops of friends, or wherever else I can.
When: Presently I make it a priority around my bill-paying job and spend 15+ hours a week working on models but it is my goal to do commission work full-time. Fortunately, I am a night-owl so my peak hours are spent doing what I love and I get to be drowsy through the work that I do not.
