The State of the Art

A pleasant side-effect of being a published author is that I have had the privilege of working with a number of artists over the years, either directly – for example with my comic work, or gamebooks – or indirectly. Some of them are well known in certain circles, some not so well known.

From time to time I am going to post some examples of the work these talented gentlemen (yes, they’ve all been male) have produced to accompany my stories, with hopefully some appropriate links.

But to give you a taster, these are just some of the artists who have produced covers for my books, provided internal illustrations for my gamebooks or illustrated comic strips I have written.

On the subject of Art Mr Green, haven't you dabbled yourself in the past? The reason I asked is because I believe you were responsible for a number of maps in Fighting Fantasy books if I remember correctly. I find it rather bizarre also that Revenge of the Vampire, penned by the equally excellent Keith Martin, had a map on the inside front cover that was in fact drawn by you. As you were both FF authors for Puffin at the time, I find this an interesting 'cross-over', for want of a better term; that you would be commissioned to produce the internal map for another author's FF book. How strange the world turns at times!

Er, yes, I have dabbled. I actually ended up studying art at University (for at least some of the time) and am technically a trained art teacher.

The only illustration work I've ever had published though is maps. The FF books I provided maps for were Knights of Doom, Curse of the Mummy, Bloodbones and Revenge of the Vampire.

I also provided the maps for the WFRP campaign Dying of the Light, published by Hogshead back in the 90s.
