Battle Merchant 3/4

The third of my medieval arms dealers for the Bastle Merchants board game. 

Battle Merchant #2/4

Battle Merchant #2/4. Owner of Titus Hellyburton & Co. I needed to use a good strong primary color for each of these characters, to match their player colors.

Battle Merchants Colored 1/4

Here's the first of the four arms dealers for Minion Games' BattleMerchants. He's the proprietor of Max's Metalwurx

One of Those Things | The Comics Journal

A decade ago my strip 'Pewfell' was part of the initial lineup of the first Professional Webcomics portal, ModernTales.com. These were the wild and crazy days of the first dot com boom (soon to be bust), and to todays struggling national newspapers currently experimenting with paywalls, subscription models and micropayments I say: been there, done that. 

MT was just recently closed down, and The Comics Journal has its official obituary, as told by The Wonderful Shaenon Garrity. Ahhh, happy times!

Where's the Penguin - Desert Souk

Another spread from 'Where's the Penguin'. This one was inspired by my travels in Egypt and Morocco back in the early 1990s - ahh, happy times... I am the one falling off the camel. I was pleased with how the colors came out in this one. Can you find all 10 Penguins?

This is the first spread from 'Where's the Penguin'. The 10 penguins have escaped from their enclosure and are looking for the exit...

Battle Merchant #4

Here's Merchant #4. I was going for a kind of arabic-look here, though I think he ended up looking a bit like Stanley Kubrick. Hopefully, he's not too much of a stereotype? I always try to use different ethnicities in my work, so even though these are supposed to be amusing depictions of shady arms-dealers, I don't want to cause offense.

Battle Merchant #3

Battle Merchant #3 out of 4. She was ispired by the cover of this Album by Shooglenifty. 

Saw Shooglenifty at the Wickham festival a couple of years back. Awesome. I danced till I fell over!

Pewfell Volume 2 now on Kindle

Pewfell Volume 2 is now available in Kindle Format:

Battle Merchant #2

Here's merchant #2 (out of 4) for the upcoming Battle Merchants from Minion Games. This guys a little more sinister, but also kinda goofy at the same time with those wacky medieval tights. I wanted him to look kind of clerical.

Battle Merchant #1

Doing a new board game for Minion Games called 'Battle Merchants'. In it you play a medieval arms dealer selling weapons to your typical warring fantasy tribes of orcs, elves, dwarves and hobgoblins. Here's one of my designs for these merchants. More to come over the next few days. We still need to come up with names for these shady characters and their companies - your suggestions are welcome...

Tahiti Video Review

A nice video review of Tahiti - a board game that I illustrated last year. You can buy the game here.

Where's The Penguin - Mardi Gras

Here's a spread from 'Where's the Penguin'. I did this one quite early in the project - it's Mardi Gras!


Well. Google+ is all very clever, and so is the new blogger, but I can't figure out how to post a picture from my iPad to the blog... all v. confusing right now...

Welcome to my new blog.

In my ongoing effort to expand my presence in all social media, I'm starting a new blog. I plan to post  new illustration work and other stuff here on a regular, hopefully daily basis. Mainly I'll be mirroring what I post to other social media, so take you pick as to which platform you prefer...😜
