Eye of the Beholder Documentary

I just finished watching Eye of the Beholder, a new documentary about the history of D&D art. (It apparently premiered at GenCon 2018, but I completely blanked on its existence before now.) The film is wonderful to watch, not only for all the amazing art on display but also to see and hear the actual artists talking about their experiences working for TSR. The film is very ecumenical, celebrating art from all editions and eras of the game—a generosity of spirit I greatly appreciated. Definitely recommended.

P. S. Larry Elmore's Patronus has to—HAS TO—be Tommy Lee Jones.

P. P. S. I'm really thrilled to see one of my favorite pieces by Tramp make an appearance in the documentary:
