|The Vanguard team at Ten Ton Hammer take a moment to speak with Dan Beauvais, one of the senior artists hard at work on Sigil's forthcoming game Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.|
Whoever thought up the word "prolific" must have had Den Beauvais in mind. Den (whose nickname is "The Imaginator") is a senior artist at Vanguard. He is one of the artists who created the PC characters, plus many of the NPCs for Vanguard, and a man who thrives on work--his output is staggering. His own "highlight of the day" describes his state of mind. When I asked him what his highlight was, he replied:
"Waking up to do it all over again. When truly inspired, art has that kind of power that keeps you up late at night and wakes you first thing in the morning with a childlike excitement and curiosity that you'll never know what you'll create that day. Every day becomes exciting that way."
And this is the drive that has powered Den through 25 years of producing art on a professional basis. I kid you not about the output. Take a look at Den's own catalogue of what he has done. And these are just the highlights.
