Drokk #1 Cover.

Lettering by Bolt-01 (Dave Evans)
Here's my cover for Drokk #1 (published by FutureQuake Press/ Zarjaz).
This cover features two of 2000AD's most popular characters Zenith and Bill Savage.
The cover accompanies a story called 'Savage Zenith', which is written by Chris Denton.
I had the privilege to illustrate this exciting story, which you can read within the cover
of this fantastic publication.

Drokk also includes a 'A making of the cover' feature, a little insight on how I work,
and five other stories based on the characters from the Galaxy's Greatest Comic,
2000AD, written and drawn by some of the finest talents around.

To order a copy of Drokk #1, head over to the FutureQuake Shop here,
or pop along to the Comicsy shop for the digital version.


And here's a version without the lettering.

Computer Game Cover Re-design: Atari's Berzerk.

This fun piece was for The Weekly Themed Art Blog, the weekly theme being Computer Games.
As a child (and still to this day) I thoroughly enjoyed playing Berzerk on the Atari 2600. Not only did I enjoy the game but I loved the brilliant illustrations on the boxes. Looking back, I can quite easily say that they were an influence on my young, creative mind. However, the illustrations didn't really convey the look of the game's graphics, which sometimes left me a little disappointed. So, for the theme I recreated the original game illustration in a way which is closer to game's actual graphics.
