…a twist of the knife!

Embracing the literary genre known as “grimdark”, and inspired by stories of mercenaries, sellswords and blackguards, FOR COIN & BLOOD keeps you on your toes, as you tell stories about the terrible things that happen to people, when they head out in search of coin, passion, and revenge…

Goodman Games: Into the Borderlands

Summer of 2017, one of our long term clients, Goodman Games, approached Outland about doing some work on their Into the Borderlands project.

I like these kind of jobs a lot – I love repeat clients. I know what to expect from them and they know what to expect from me, so there’s generally a lot more trust and things just move a lot more smoothly.

For this project I brought in Chris Yarbrough, Ger Curti, Dean Kotz, and Aaron Palsmeier! Along with Keith Curtis on maps!

This was a fun story about Siuluk the Last Tuniq, illustrated by Rob Nix.

Canadian War Museum: Deadly Skies

Canadian War Museum: Deadly Skies

Canadian War Museum: Deadly Skies

In mid 2015 we received an invitation to make a proposal for a rather large graphic novel project for the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa, Canada. The project was to focus on air war during the first world war and would involve the creation of around eighty pages of comics and would require that we integrate actual artifacts from the first world war into pages.

It sounded like a lot of fun and being a bit of a history buff, definitely something I was interested in pursuing. Part of the process was creating around four pages of artwork as part of the proposal in an effort to get the gig. I tapped Lee Oaks and these are the pages we put together for the proposal.

And as luck would have it, we won the proposal! The work involved a ton of coordination with the Canadian War Museum (CWM) team, their designers, myself, and the Outland team of artists. We spent about six months hip deep in WWI material, researching, referencing, and illustrating everything.

As the art director on the project, I worked closely with the CWM team to layout all the stories, which I then turned over to Lee Oaks, Cesar Sebastian Diaz, and Andy Poole to illustrate. Layouts below –

When all was said and done, we illustrated ten separate stories about ten different, but significant, aviators during the first world war. Below are three of the ten stories we did.

The project ultimately premiered in June of 2016 as the Deadly Skies exhibit at the Canadian War Museum. The museum blew up each page we created into a 40″x40″ square panel and displayed it for the viewers to follow each story and see some of the artifacts from the war. If you head over to that link, you can preview the exhibit and see it all in action!
