LOVE his work. Just amazing stuff. His Dragon magazine covers were among my favorites
Same. He's doing a LOT of digital stuff these days, but man, when I got this in the mail I nearly jizzed myself. I asked for a Predator counterpart and he was really excited about it. Once I get enough saved up...Hopefully he will still be alive and willing to paint

The acclaimed artist, concept designer and author of Ur Varselklotet (2014) Simon Stålenhag (b. 1984) is best known for his highly imaginative images and stories portraying illusive sci-fi phenomena in mundane, hyper-realistic Scandinavian landscapes. Ur Varselklotet was ranked by The Guardian as one of the ‘10 Best Dystopias’, in company with works such as Franz Kafka’s The Trial and Andrew Niccol’s Gattaca.
Not only have Stålenhag’s unique and cinematic images earned him a worldwide fan base, but have also made him a go-to storyteller, concept artist and illustrator for both the film and computer gaming industry. Simon Stålenhag’s work can be seen in films such as Searching for Sugarman (2012), directed by Malik Bendjeloull, and in games such as Ripple Dot Zero (2013).
Ditch Fahrenheit: There's one more of his threads left...I bumped it.

Buzzetta: I'm updating it now.

Buzzetta: I like my private little game that has been long since dissolved. I would tally up and keep tabs on suspensions and vacations when they used to publicly announce them. McKnowitall had a few records going with frequency and shortest time between strikes

Buzzetta: I would like to think that the mods are kind of on board with this as they did not poof the thread but locked it. In the last few years, threads have been poofed rather than locked to discourage this tally.

Ditch Fahrenheit: They were definitely on board 5 years ago. In fact, I suspect they were actively manipulating the scoring.

Ditch Fahrenheit: Plus, it's just better forum management to lock a thread rather than poof it. That way everyone has access to the information in the thread afterwards.

Buzzetta: There were those that chose to disrupt for the sake of getting points whenever they saw a thread was on its way out. However, the game did part of the mods job for them. It let them keep track of who and how many times someone was involved in nonsense.
