My tribute to Jim Roslof (1946-2011)

Over at the Piazza, The SecretDM posted that:

"While this news is slowly working its way across the blogosphere, I noticed no one had posted a comment about it here yet. Apologies if this isn't in fact the first mention of this.

On Saturday, March 19th, Jim Roslof passed away. Jim was an artist and former employee at TSR, whose most famous picture remains the original art for the B2 module 'Keep on the Borderlands'."

One of my favorite pieces by Roslof is "Nathaire creating the Colossus", used for the back cover of X2 Castle Amber.

You can see more tribute art to Roslof at Grognardia and at the Black Gate.

R.I.P. mr Roslof
