“In 2013, I shared a beer or two with Mike Brandt and one of the organizers of the NOVA Narrative and just loved that the staff put that little bit (scratch that) LOT o’bit of extra love into running the tournament. I wanted to be a part of it. On the last day of my first NOVA Open, the charity army raffle caught my eye, and since painting is how I find my happy place, I thought that it would be a wonderfully heartfelt way to give time to help others.”  Brian painted for the 2014 Macragge armies.
