Sorry, I'm a massive Bradstreet fan but I also like Janet's work. Those of
you who haven't seen it I thoroughly recommend you check out Janet's work in
the Earthdawn rule/sourcebooks.

Yes I was disappointed the Elmore didn't do new cards for Sally & Co, but I
find Janet's work highly atmospheric - great use of shadow, few hard lines.

Having said that I really like the way Larry Mac's work conveys a great
feeling of desolation, so often missing IHMO in a lot of SRun artwork. But
then again I think he's another 'love or hate' FASA artist. I've seen a lot
of ranting about the 'poor quality'/'scratchiness' of his work.

At the end of the day I feel FASA has a good and varied portfolio of artists
available to them and single artists shouldn't be pointed out for derision
if you don't like their particular style. As my dear old mum would say : "If
you don't have nothing nice to say, don't say anything"

Don't forget artists have got feelings too and you never know who reads what
you write - Hey Joel?

End of sermon....
