DAVID A. TRAMPIER 1954 – March 24, 2014





1954 – March 24, 2014


 I'm sad to report that David A. Trampier passed away, on Mach 24, 2014.

As the illustrator DAT, he created some of the most compelling and iconic images in early AD&D history -- may of which are still poignantly remembered today by thumping nerds everywhere. Besides his image contribution to the game, he is one of my all-time favorite illustrators, regardless.

Not all great artists get the recognition they deserve, and some of them strenuously avoid it. Thank you for the dreams, and for "Emirikol the Chaotic".
