Obsidian Portal Card


One of my first freelance jobs a decade ago when I was a young pup was creating a logo for a tabletop management system called Obsidian Portal. Not knowing anything about D&D or any tabletop system, I went with a tribal tattoo design for their logo. Wanting to modernize it without losing the decade-old identity, I created another logo, a more rugged beast, which I’ve ghosted behind the full original one.

Obsidian Portal is running a Kickstarter through April of 2013. Help them out if you’re a fan! We’re doing another round of letterpress cards for them as a backer reward!

I worked with a trusty bottle of Dry Fly’s Washington Wheat at my press’ side. More on this soon.

This is one of the darker prints of the ghosted dragon, the majority came about 50% lighter.

I reversed the image to make it right reading, not very truthful to the project, but the Obsidian Portal guys thought it was neat to see.
