Hand of Fate Concept Art

Yesterday saw the release of Defiant Development’s game Hand of Fate, on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, and I’m pleased to say it’s getting some great reviews. So to celebrate, I’m posting these character designs I created for the game, beginning with a slide show of my process.

Ashcan 9 cover art & ZICS

Ashcan9

ZICS2014

I recently had the opportunity to create the cover artwork for Ashcan, issue #9. Ashcan is a collaborative project designed to bring together comic artists and writers, giving them the opportunity to have their work published for free in a print medium. You can pick up a copy from the Ashcan table (#13) at this weekend’s Zine and Indie Comic Symposium (ZICS) at The Edge, part of the State Library of Queensland, South Bank, Brisbane. I will be sharing the table and pimping out my comic Hilt once more, so if you’re in the area, come and say hello, and check out all the other great artists and writers that Brisbane has to offer.

Rise to Power – Card Art Pt.1

Having just finished the first batch of card art images for the basic version of Rule & Make’s Rise to Power, I thought it’d be nice to present them as a set. These have been as much fun to create as the game is to play. I’ll post the rest of the art (which was part of the stretch goals for the Kickstarter campaign) when they are complete. Click on the thumbnails for larger images.

Alfa Romeo Commercial

Today I was pleased to see this Alfa Romeo commercial on TV, for which I did the storyboards. It was directed by Matt Holcomb, and was a pleasure to work on.

I’ve recently had the pleasure of creating card art for Rise to Power, an up and coming board game by Allen Chang and Alistair Kearney of Rule & Make . They are currently running a Kickstarter campaign to help get the game finished and made. If you’re an avid board gamer, head on over and help support the project. It’s certainly been a lot of fun to work on.
