THE WRATH OF GAF

More illustrations for the illustrious Edge magazine, who this month introduce two new columnists in the shape of Ian Bogost and Nathan Brown. Wise words are said, and then trivialised by pictures of sloths.

SIR, YOU ARE BEING REWARDED

And what better reward is there than the severed head of a badger? Well, according to Big Robot - tasked with designing some achievements for their excellent stealth/survival game Sir, You Are Being Hunted - there are at least five superior rewards, although they do all stick to the theme of ornamental decapitation. I got to draw them:

HORACE THE INFINITE BEAR

This ended up being one of the weirder things I've been paid to draw. The good folk of Rock Paper Shotgun needed a bespoke takeover image in which to clad their website. The brief stated it had to involve a take on site mascot, Horace The Endless Bear, but I was otherwise encouraged to "go full Marsh" on the thing.

A dangerous request for all involved.

And so...


It works rather better in situ, i.e. when not displayed against a blaring white background. Here are some details:

THE FUTURE OF PC GAMING

Let us stare into our USB-powered crystal balls and consider the future of PC gaming. Hmm... yes... I'm getting a reading. Something about Facebook... buying... Valve? And then just silence - save for the sound of ash falling on a dead world. That can't be right. Luckily, PC Gamer US have a more optimistic vision of tomorrow's personal computer entertainment, and they asked me to illustrate it. How nice!

I APOLOGISE FOR THE WORD 'BOOKAZINE'

PC Gamer asked me if I'd throw together a bunch of recognisable indie game characters for the cover of their, brace yourself, bookazine - a special edition of the magazine which compiles every indie-gaming-related feature, review and preview from the recent past (including some of my own). I drew the characters in isolation and then the mag's art team assembled them on the cover.



And here's what it looks like in print.

THE POWER OF AN OWL IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND

As well as being a writer, illustrator and (questionably) decent sort, I am also a caster of PC gaming-related pods at www.crateandcrowbar.com, along with several other lovely folk: @pentadact@gonnas, @cthursten and @PCGLudo.

It's a lot of fun, even if my liver doesn't think so.

Also, I got to make some t-shirts in celebration of it, which you can buy from here - crateandcrowbar.spreadshirt.co.uk - and see details of below. Each is based on the title of an episode of the podcast, which is why they're so odd.
