I really love this piece!

I'm always a fan of John's art but this one today just really struck me when I saw it! It's probably going to go up on Uncommon Adventures Gallery (yay!), but I wanted to share it now because I love it. :)
Knowledge is the first defense.

Another brush pen drawing done while waiting for Brie at an appointment.

Designers: You are always cultural critics.

When you design a game that has a setting, genre, or atmosphere (or all three), you are curating elements from elsewhere as well as creating your own.

It is almost certain that the sources of those elements (Pulp! Fantasy! Lovecraft! Modern politics!) are to one degree or another fucked up - racist, sexist, exoticist, et multiple cetera.

When you select elements from the available stuff, you are judging what goes in the collection.  All cultural curators are cultural critics, and will be judged on their critical ability by the resulting collection.

It doesn't matter much that you inherited the awful rather than originating it; you selected it as worthy or necessary as a critic, included it as a curator, and did whatever you did with it as a creative.  Own all of that.
