Maestro Rudolf Schwartzwasser (1922-2001). The world's greatest (and only) silent-piano* player. His performances are reported to be breath-taking and mesmerising, leaving the audience speechless. Another famous Schwartzwasser was his father, Zigmund, who was a virtuous stringless-guitar player and the founding father of the silent musical instruments movement in modern music. He was very much influenced by the super-extreme-minimalism movement that swept the Nicaraguan art scene at the time.
* Silent-piano - a special piano without all the strings and sound-producing parts usually found inside a normal piano.

This is the Skullwing. A common pet for the common arch-mage. The Skullwing is a harmless creature behaving very much like a little happy puppy (without all the pooping). The ingredients required to conjure this pet are:
1. A virgin giant bat.
2. The skull of a dog-loving man.
3. Good karma.
Now, go and make one for yourself!

This sketch was inspired by a photo of Noel Redding. Here is a short info about him from Wikipedia:
David "Noel" Redding (25 December 1945 – 11 May 2003) was an English rock and roll guitarist best known as the bassist for The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Redding was the first person to join the Jimi Hendrix Experience, and the first to leave. His final concert with them was in June 1969. With the band, he participated in recording the 3 landmark albums "Are You Experienced", "Axis: Bold as Love", and "Electric Ladyland", as well as performing in some of Hendrix's most celebrated concerts. His playing style was distinguished by the use of a pick, a mid-range "trebly" sound, and in later years the use of fuzz and distortion effects through overdriven Sunn amps.
