Jessica Nigri Poster

Hello all!  Happy New Year, hope everyone had a great holiday break.  I’m finally able to post this, a little while back I created a poster for cosplayer Jessica Nigri and sent it to her.  She finally received it the other day when she did her weekly(ish) mailbag video so now I can share it with everyone else. I’m pleased to say she loved it. :)  About 25 hours of work done in the style of Drew Struzan.


Here’s her mailbag video.  Skip to 11:49.  Take note the video is mirrored.

Glad you like it Jessica.:)

Breaking Bad Poster Contest Entry

A few weeks back a friend sent me a link to a Breaking Bad season 5 poster contest for a local retailer in celebration of the upcoming Bluray/DVD release of the series finale.  Being a big Breaking Bad fan I was never going to miss this chance!   The brief was pretty simple – create a poster with the images supplied.   However, instead of doing something that’s been clearly Photoshopped to hell I decided to draw a Drew Struzan inspired poster, something I’ve tried several times with mixed results.  I’ve admired his movie poster artwork and design style for years, I even watch some video of him working to get an idea of how he goes about creating his work.  In the end though I realised he works differently to me so I just did a Struzen-esque poster in my own style, and for the most part I’m pleased with the results.   Probably about 20 hours work.  I’ll let you know how I fair in the contest.:)

UPDATE: Sadly I didn’t win the Breaking Bad Poster contest, I was however one of the 10 finalists and so won a runners up prize of the Breaking Bad Blu-Ray boxset. :) There were some seriously good entries that made the final round so it was always going to be hard to win, but a top 10 finish isn’t too bad a result in my book, it’s the first time in many, many years I can remember winning anything, so I’m not complaining.   Check out the finalists and winning design at

Fairytale Games – Cinderella Card Art

Here’s a new batch of card art I did for the Fairytale Games:The Battle Royal board game.  These are attacking cards for the Cinderella character who’s back story is that after her fiance’s murder she become a fierce warrior known as ‘The Slayer’.  I’m happy with the results for the most part but I’m thinking about fixing up the colouring and rendering a bit on the blue card.  What’s cool about this project is that not only do I get to do some awesome card art, this particular character is being turned into a miniature playing piece for the game which is something I never thought I’d see.

Welcome to!

Yep, after 4 years the domain name was finally purchased.  Smash the champaign against the hull, the site is now rechristened from here on in.  The original domain name still works, but you can now drop that ugly ‘wordpress’ part (although to be fair they did give me free hosting, so they’re not that bad).

Welcome to everyone!

Fairytale Games – The Battle Royale Card Art

This loosely falls under the category of fan art so I thought I’d post it here as well as on my other websites.  A few weeks back I was lucky enough to be asked to do some artwork for a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign for an upcoming card game. In all I’ll be doing over 100 pieces of artwork for this game which is a sort of cross between Hunger Games and traditional fairytale stories.  Personally I’ve always wanted to do some card game art and am really grateful for the opportunity to work on this game along with so many other great artists who’s art is amazing.    The first three character cards of The Little Mermaid, Cinderella and Belle are essentially alternate takes on the Disney fighter series I did a few years back, but less influenced on the Disney characters as before, these girls are more homages to those characters but have their own unique back story.  For more info as well as other great pieces of game artwork check out the official website for the game.  From what I understand the game should be out sometime in 2014.

Batman/Superman Teaser

Well we’ve finally got a film with Batman and Superman coming up soon, so I thought I’d whip up a teaser poster.  I’m quite happy with how the logo turned out. Wanted to meld the current Man of Steel logo with a Batman logo incorporating some rocky textures into the Batman side of the combo in reference to the Batcave.   The flaming debris is in reference to the aftermath of Man of Steel, and the tagline is in reference to people wanting justice for the thousands Superman inadvertently killed in that film as well as alluding to a future Justice League movie. About 4 hours work in total.
