Art from The Fuzzy Slug: Natalie Metzger


Natalie Metzger is The Secretary of Artistic Propaganda over at The Secret Lair. In addition to designing our site banner and Overlord avatars, Natalie also writes and draws our official webcomic.

    Natalie is awesome. Don’t forget – she recently did a piece for The Goblin Broadcast Network too…she rocks.

    Sam — Thanks for the reminder; it had completely slipped my mind that Natalie did the goblin-listening-to-an-MP3-player piece for GBN.

    She’s also done two great pieces for Murder at Avedon Hill. That reminds me, I need to create an art page on the site. Gah.
