We have a very special guest this episode: illustrator Tony DiTerlizzi graced us with a full length interview. We chat about his influences, Dragon Mountain, the Monstrous Manual, Planescape, Magic the Gathering, the Spiderwick Chronicles, Hong Kong dinosaurs (you can read Tony’s post on these and their influence on Dungeons & Dragons here) and so much more – and we barely scratch the surface, honestly.
Tony’s retrospective art show, Never Abandon Imagination, opens June 22 at the Mint Museum Randolph, in Charlotte, North Carolina, and runs through November 3. If you’re in the area, be sure to check it out. You can also follow Tony on Twitter and Instagram.
Clarification: The book that re-introduced Tony to the work of Arthur Rackham is A Treasury of Great Children’s Book Illustrators.
