Design Mechanism: Monster Island

project Info

In 2013, I was contacted by Lawrence Whitaker from Design Mechanism to develop some artwork for their role-playing game book, Monster Island.

I love RPG projects, RPG’s are where I came up as an illustrator, so I always endeavor to take these on when they pop up, and this was no exception.  It was a real pleasure to work with Lawrence and the project was a fun one where we got to illustrate all kinds of monsters!  What’s not to like?

I recruited two artists to work on this particular project, Tim Hibbetts, an old friend of mine, and Giovanni Valletta.  I wanted two artists with a strong, dramatic, black and white style for this project, both of which pulled off exquisitely.  I think they did a fantastic job!
