A Grayson County artist internationally known for his mystical and menacing dragons plans to self-publish in August the first major hardcover book of his work, “Larry Elmore: The Complete Elmore Artbook.”

Elmore, a 1971 Western Kentucky University graduate, first found his sense of adventure in the Kentucky woods. As of boy of 10, he raced through those woods, checking out the textures of trees as he climbed them and the animals that flitted over the contour of the grasses, he said.

However, it was during a trip to Arnette’s Clothing Store in Leitchfield to see his dad, Norman, that then-teen Elmore spied the object that would become a lifelong love affair: an oil painting of a vibrant Viking long boat that hung near the shopkeeper’s office. Elmore’s imagination raced as he looked at the majestic boat, the carved dragon head that served as the bow and the dragon’s tail that served as the stern. The sky behind the boat showed the sunshine bathing the craft.

SnarfQuest Invades KODT!!!



Starting with the upcoming issue of Knights of the Dinner Table (issue 195), Larry Elmore’s groundbreaking comic strip SnarfQuest will appear monthly in KODT. The strip first appeared in Dragon magazine, running from issue 1983-1989. Later, it appeared in Games Unplugged starting in 2000 until it went out of business.

The strips that appear in KODT will at first be reprints of those strips, and then the story will continue with new, original strips, written and drawn by Elmore himself.

“I am so happy that Snarf is back, and I am extremely happy to be working with Jolly Blackburn and all the cool dudes of Kenzer & Company,” Elmore said. “I look forward to doing this for years to come. So, watch out, B.A., Dave and Brian, or Snarf might steal Sara away, ‘cause he loves the ladies!”

These feelings are mutual, as all of the staff of KODT is thrilled to welcome such a talent as Larry Elmore, and to have Snarf grace the pages of our magazine.

“When I first learned that Larry was interested in having Snarf appear in KODT, I almost couldn’t believe it,” Blackburn said. “It seemed to good to be true. We look forward to seeing this fan favorite gracing our pages for many months to come. We all hope that fans will be excited by the opportunity to read about the Knights and Snarf all in one place. To me, it seems like a match made in heaven.”
