Latest project: Ekphrastic Beasts – A New Kind of RPG Compendium

Check out a new kickstarter that I’m apart of! The fundraising runs until the end of May so click the picture below to head to the website or read on for a synopsis.

What is this project?

Our project is a full-color fantasy art book, which leads with spectacular artwork from 4 of today’s most exciting weird illustrators, that also functions as an artist-created compendium of creatures for the 5th edition of the world’s most popular role-playing game!

How will the funds bring it to life?

With the money raised we will create dozens of strange, gruesome, terrifying, never-before-seen creatures for your tabletop campaigns—and make them available in a full-color illustrated PDF as well as a beautifully printed & bound book.

Who is the creator?

We are: Ellie Gill (illustrator), Jeremy Hush (illustrator), Joe Keinberger (illustrator), Nathan Reidt (illustrator), Janaka Stucky (author). All of us are lifelong artists and gamers, fulfilling our dream of creating a bestiary!


Ellie hails from the icy tundra of Boston, Massachusetts. After a brief stint at the Maryland Institute College of Art she moved home where she got her BFA at the Mass. College of Art and Design. After 10 years of freelance illustration Ellie is now tattooing at Unkindness Art in Richmond, VA, where she now lives with her husband and her dogs.
