I recently did a couple of pieces of artwork for the website of a video games company. Beatnik Games asked me to do a couple of pieces to use for their website in anticipation for their first project. I was more than delighted to contribute. Check out their site to see how they used the above piece.

what size did you do this at?
and I`m loving that bit of red you threw in there on that chess piece.very subtle.

Great image Dec. Very moody, lovely use of negative space.
Damn hippies.

Really nice work-the convention sketches are excellent.

Thanks lads,

I drew the piece A3 size Luke, glad you like the red, it was Beatniks idea actually, not mine.

Hey Moon, yeah, it's not a huge, elaborately detailed piece, i wanted it to be different to the other image i did for 'em. Was trying to play with the b+w balance to a more dramatic effect, hence the big blocky areas of both.

Hey Lubbert, thanks man!

Thats a grand big signature there ruining the whole thing. Change your name to a full stop and get back to me.

Great art.

Well, actually, i like to look at my art as a punctuation mark that follows my name. Nothing more.
