Back when I was working as an art director and writer for Zombie Games in Seattle, I came up with a, for then, revolutionary game concept called Messiah.
To play, you set out as a child and worked your way through eight quests, each one leading you further onward to eventually become a wise elder who unites and frees the enslaved populace.
As there were no weapons involved, the player had to use their wits, charm, stealth and cunning to get to the top. Unfortunately, it was such a revolutionary concept in 1998 that it was unable to be made into a game.
Maybe next time…In those days, my usual way of presenting an idea was in the style of a graphic novel which normally took me between a week and ten days to flesh out. The above illustration was hand-drawn in ink on A3 paper and represents a few of the levels contained in the game which would later be expanded on by the level designers.
I presented this concept to GT Interactive and Zombie shortly before I left the company to go freelance.

Back in the early 90s, I was commissioned to illustrate Warner Music’s catalogue. I was pretty much burned out doing these film noir gumshoes so I hesitated at first but eventually capitulated when writer Ian Dewhirst added more characters.
Despite some negative reactions from the suits at Warner’s, it went on to win a D&AD advertising award for Best Corporate Campaign.
To celebrate International Women’s Day, I wanted to choose an iconic female that would speak volumes about the women in my life and their best qualities: their concern and resolve, their nobility and beauty.
PS. I used the lovely Tina Louise (Ginger in Gilligan’s Island) as the basis for BIG RED.
The image is available form the Products shop as either a canvas or art stock paper print.
Short mini-documentary on the BRUTE! Popaganda show in Prague this month. Film maker Rory Wilmer and I spent the day walking and drinking along the river Vltava and discussing my work. Also contains scenes from the opening of the show at Mad Bar which features a short speech by yours truly on Popaganda reproduction.
One of the best ways for an artist to keep in the zone between art engagements is to draw porn. It keeps the hand fluid by creating curves and the eye alive by constantly evaluating shadows and light sources.
Plus, its fun!
Thanks to Deborah Ferraz for this valuable addition to my blog
