For almost 10 years I've been running a small non commercial family website (called Newbold World) as a hobby. That website has enabled me to combine my passions for artwork, miniatures figures, OOAK creations and charitable works together with my own slightly eccentric style of storytelling into a single fun activity. Needless to say I've had a fabulous time doing it thanks to all the creative folk who've helped me over the years and all the visitors who've dropped by to see what we were doing. Right now I'm approaching 70 years of age and having just suffered a tiny computing disaster I feel that the time is right to cut back on my endeavours and do something a little less demanding.

As a result I'm planning to do no more work on the Newbold World website and I plan to close it and the Newbold Challenge (which has raised almost £50,000 GBP for a variety of charities since its inception in 2006) at the end of this year.

I'd like to say a very special thank you to all the super artists here on deviantart who have kindly allowed us to display their work in the Newbold World magazines and galleries and who entered the Challenge competitions in our early days. Your marvellous creations have brought a great deal of pleasure to my family and to the wide range of folk from all over the world who visited the website over the years.   :hug:

I will continue to spend a little time on my own amateur storytelling (although on a much smaller scale than before) and I will have some of it illustrated by my friends here on deviantart. So I'll still have a few things to share with you if you'd care to visit me here on deviantart from time to time.  :hug:

Hello everyone. My name is Ian Newbold and I used to run a small non commercial family website (called Newbold World) as a hobby. That website enabled me to share my passion for artwork, miniature figures, OOAK creations, eccentric storytelling and charitable activities with the world at large. I spent my first nine years here on deviantart telling you about all the things that happened on Newbold World but now I'm in the process of closing that website down so that I can slide gently into old age! :-)

I'm an amateur storyteller rather than an artist and I plan to keep that part of my leisure activities alive for as long as possible.

That ancient storyteller up above is called Monsewer Raconteur and he was created for me by Cindy Dukino. The continuing part of my hobby will be to create the words that flow from the end of his quill and to commission some of my friends here on deviantart to illustrate them for me.

Monsewer Raconteur was creating a bold new world called the Skoog Fusion Setting on the Newbold World website and from now on he'll be telling you a little bit more about it and introducing you to some of the more interesting characters that live there. I hope that some of you will continue to drop by my page here on deviantart from time to time to see what he has been up to! :hug:
