The prize drawing for Dawngate’s Renzo Art contest! The winner chose ‘Shoebox Desecrator’ as the subject matter. Great choice!

Lines by me, color by Nick Kole. We brought the 90s back. Hard.

Every year I draw farmers Boggis, Bunce, and Bean from Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl. Hoping to make this one into a print soon.

"The Renzo Dazzle" vs "The Bandit Hustle"
Living Lore choice panels from p62 of The Dawngate Chronicles. I got to bring some of my special goofball sauce to Kahgen and Renzo represented in graffiti.
I am planning some Chronicles process posts soon, as soon I finish painting all these pages!

Why have you been posting no art, John? 
Because The Dawngate Chronicles!
My friend Nick Kole and I have been working with the team from Waystone Games on a webcomic that tells the story of Dawngate, their new MOBA game now in open Beta. Nick is doing the layout and line-art and I am handling color and backgrounds. It’s been busy and awesome so far, definitely a style push that I needed.
These are just a few pages from the first week, I’ll put up some more as we go, but the whole story will unfold here:

I was honored with the opportunity to do a Steam trading card for the upcoming smash hit game ‘Escape Goat 2.’ I was given carte blanche for the style, so naturally it got pretty kooky. This one was a blast.

It’s coming out soon, go Steam it!

Screens! More of my background paints with CloudKid, they are even more exciting when things are animated on them. The many-screened shot was painted over a sketch by Isaac Orloff. Color keys for all this stuff by Louie Zong. Check out their work, if you haven’t already.
