Le Grimiore and beyond

So, what was going to post last week? Well, I'd recently produced a couple of illustrations for the French magazine/website production Loup Solitaire for Le
See below for one of the pictures that I did.

Here are a couple of spot doodles that were done for clearing my mind, as they say, see below.
Last today, two illustrations from my work produced for the Fighting Fantasy Series.


  1. Nice stuff. For some reason that enthroned guy reminds me of some of Ian Miller's work; I'm not sure why, because it's not really the same style at all... maybe it's the texture in the skirt of his robe? Anyway, good work :)

  2. I love the first one, it reminds me of a shady part of the city where you can find 'gently used' armor...

  3. Loup Solitaire? Lone Wolf as in gamebook Lone Wolf? Unless I'm very much mistaken that's a Potion of Laumspur on the shelf...

  4. Yes it's a 'Potion of Laumspur',and I'm impressed with your eyesight! This was, as remarked, one of two illustrations for, as you rightly identified, a French Lone Wolf adventure, one of a new series I believe. Cannot give any more information, but if interested I recommend checking the website out.

  5. Hi

    I just wanted to say that when I was a kid I was a huge fan of "Fighting Fantasy" books (in Portugal they were translated as "Aventuras Fantásticas" - Fantastic Adventures).

    And I always thought your illustrations were the best in the entire series. Those from "Citadel of Chaos" remain in my mind up to this day.

    I honestly think you're one of the best "Heroic Fantasy" illustrators there is.

  6. Thanks Autor, it's nice to see [and hear from] a fan from Portugal. Hope you're enjoying the blog.

  7. Of the last two pix, the figure on the throne is a Magus from Krarth and is taken from Dragon Warriors 6: The Lands of Legend.

    The pic below that of the chained demon by the door, is also set in Krarth but comes from Blood Sword 2: The Kingdom of Wyrd.
