Some fan art with Tom Dell'Aringa's Marooned characters.
A Long Way Home - sketch of Tom Dell'Aringa's Marooned heroes. It's been a wonderful weekend of raft building, riding bikes, drawing monsters and creating characters classes for Bones & Thrones.  I also started re-reading Tom Dell'Aringa's Marooned from the beginning.  If you haven't had the pleasure of reading Marooned, you're in luck, you can start at the beginning right on his website.  Here's how Tom describes it: Marooned i...
