Tracy Lesch was one of the pioneering artists for D&D. Beginning with his work in the Blackmoor supplement, he went on to create iconic illustrations for Eldritch Wizardry, The Dragon Magazine, the original Tomb of Horrors, the Dungeon! board game, and other games like Boot Hill and Warriors of Mars.

His art provided visual templates for characters like the Mind Flayer and Roper. He later became a designer for Planet Hollywood, and went on to work with such companies as Marvel, Disney, Universal, Harley-Davidson, The Hamilton Collection, and RPG companies like Stellar Games. Tracy has been awarded Florida’s Image Award twice for excellence in art design. In the realm of writing, Florida’s 2006 FCWC Conference named him Writer of the Year. In 2012, he wrote a fantasy epic called Armor of God: The Paladin, which became a finalist in the Global E-book Awards. His art for it garnered a Best Cover nomination.
