The kickstarter for "Who is in the Tavern?" is going extremely well! Almost 50% funded in the first day! I thought I’d celebrate by giving you an insight into my process of creating the artwork for the cards- take it away Mr.Bartender!

Please help bring this project to life if you can! Don’t forget you can have me illustrate one of your characters if you pledge at Bartender and Proprietor levels.

Who is in the Tavern? has launched on Kickstarter

It’s a set of cards that D&D game masters and storytellers in general can use to fill a scene with NPCs and random characters to interact with. Each card has a unique character (illustrated by me), and includes tavern stats and personality traits to help build stories.

A lot of the characters will be created using ideas from backers, meaning that you can have your character illustrated by me and it will appear on the cards if you back the project at Bartender and Proprietor levels!

Please check out the Kickstarter and back if you can/want! These guys are just a taste of the fun and wacky characters I’ve been working on! Click the link!

A belated birthday present for Edgar (edtertainer)! He has been kind enough to share details of his comic project with me and I instantly fell in love with the characters. Here are Fiona and Hearth! Heart is my absolute favorite because let’s be honest- what’s not to love about an owl in a wizards hat?!
Ed is doing commissions at the moment (including animations!!!) over on his blog- Check them out!

Almost finished my final freelance project before I can have my summer holiday! During said holiday, I will be working on Vol 2 of the Real Monsters as well as other small personal projects. 
Here are some characters I’ve been sketching that you might recognize from a very well known and beloved storybook. Look forward to seeing more of these in a short while!

A quick sketch of an idea for a redesign of the bipolar Real Monster. The previous design feels too clunky in my opinion and I think something more sprite-like would work better.
More Real Monsters Vol 2 stuff in a few weeks time!

Hi Tumblr!
Sorry it’s been a while! I’ve been very busy with freelance projects over the past few weeks. To keep myself sane, I’ve been doing some Pokemon sketches for friends on Twitter in the evenings and here is the results of the last week! 
Im hoping to have some time off soon, which I will devote to working on volume 2 of the Real Monsters- so watch this space.
See ya around!

I drew one of my favorite Pokemon, Leavanny, to de-stress after a busy week. I was thinking about if plant Pokemon changed with the seasons, so I did some colour swapping to see what it might look like.

The Zelda Collab!

Starting last November I put together a collab of all the creatures and races within the universe of The Legend of Zelda games! Spanning across Twitter, Tumblr, Deviantart, and even some Facebook folk, nearly 250 different artists submitted artwork!

Here is the full size version of all 255 Entries!

And Here is the list of all the artists who contributed!

Thank you so much to everyone who joined, this was a great experience and I got to meet some awesome people through it! You all are awesome!

MINE IS THE SECOND ONE! The Acheman! This was super fun and its great to see all the entries together!

The Zelda games are host to a multitude of awesome looking beasties. That’s why its probably my favorite game series, EVER.
