Been busy over the past 2 weeks working on a commission for the guys at Counter Attack! I created a new ‘CA!’ Logo, podcast illustration, website banner as well as several avatars.
Counter Attack! is a news/ reviews website. I actually listen to their podcast weekly as I do my artwork, as a team they have great chemistry which it makes it a good listen.
I wanted to try to capture their personalities in the design. So that when you listen to the podcast you could put a face to the voice. They came up with the idea of having objects from their favourite games and I believe this was a great starting point. For the CA! logo I created a slick, clean and professional look.
I usually get most of my latest news stories from CA! as I get regular email updates, so you should check them out and subscribe!
It’s been a long time coming but I now have art prints!
The high quality Giclee print really makes textures pop, I just love how they have turned out!
I picked up an A3 frame to see what they look like on the wall and more than happy with the result.

Here is my take on the Chrimera from Resistance 3. One of my favourite first person shooters. Recently played the trilogy back to back. The third is incredible, felt like it mixed all my favourite genres and games together! Had Ratchet and clank style guns, Fallout 3/ Half life 2 atmosphere.
Below are some doodles from when creating this. I wanted him to look as fiendish as I could but still give him that scary alien look. Hopefully this with get turned into a sculpt.
Pablo Apocalypse concept 2
I have been hiding away creating designs for Pablo Eskimo’s new album. After suggesting the Zombie theme for the cover the band decided to call their new album ‘Dawn of the Eskimo’. Pretty awesome! Above are some designs that didn’t get used. Once the album is launched I will post the final products.
This illustration is called ‘Deceitful Decision’ and is my take on Fallout 3. Its inspired by one of my most memorable gaming experiences. Destroy Megaton or save it? I remember my deceitful decision having disastrous consequences with a character I liked, I did on the other hand now own a swanky new apartment and a good view saluting farewell to Megaton. Kaboom!
Last year I come up with the idea for this illustration and threw it down in doodle form (see below). I spent a good amount of time creating this polished version last week, as its one of my favourite games I wanted to do it justice! Creating this has put me in the mood to pick up the game again. I believe the PC version has some great mods. Any recommendations to what ones?

Here is my take on Final Fantasy 7 character, Barrett.
When I was younger all my friends and cousin was heavily into Final Fantasy 7 where as I was more into action games such as Metal Gear Solid and Syphon Filter. Back then I never gave it a chance and dismissed it. So recently I blew the dust off my PSP and installed Final Fantasy 7 to see what all the fuss was about. I’m only four hours into the game but I’m really enjoying it. After a while you come accustomed to the dated graphics and it becomes charm. The character models used in combat are a little more detailed and have character to them.
Not that there is anything wrong with the music in games nowadays but I noticed something this game has that most don’t today. Familiar catchy music for certain situations or areas. Think back to Street fighter, Super Mario or Tetris and you can instantly remember the music.
So why did I draw Barrett and not Cloud? Because after playing it I consider Barrett my personal badass of the gaming world of 2013!
