Knock! Magazine

A look at some of my drawings appearing in Knock! magazine. 

Self described as "An Adventure Gaming Bric-a-Brac. Being A Compendium of Miscellanea for Old School RPGs. For us OSR weirdos and curious D&D heads alike." Knock! Magazine is an as an A5, full colour, nicely designed, 200+ page magazine, in both print and PDF  published by The Merry Mushmen compilation of mostly gameable and inspirational OSR material for Dungeons and Dragons and its many retroclones. 

The Autnagrag / Knock #2

This was originally drawn for James Maliszewski's Gargant Class, something of André the Giant and Tony Hancock, Little John, Gann from Blake's 7, Alan Humphries from Grange Hill, Simon from Castle Waiting. The thing with drawing archetypes is they can take alternate manifestations, so the drawing been cunningly re-purposed here to illustrate Eric Nieudan's class The Autnagrag. Of course there is much more in Knock! than just this, monsters, magic items, character sheets, non-player characters, classes, maps, all provided by a veritable rogues gallery of high level OSR talent.

Knock! #2 can be purchased in print and pdf from The Merry Mushmen online shop.

Blighter and Eidolon / Knock #3

I also have three 'creature' drawings done for James, this time alongside his rules and background for the creatures in the forthcoming Knock #3,  including a pestilent mutant zombie and a skull faced robed ghost accompanied by some suitably grungy typography, although this is WIP and may be subject to some alteration before going to press. Knock #3 is currently on Kickstarter (at the time of writing the campaign is funded at £62,780, with 1,977 backers and 26 days left to run). As with #2 there is so much good, odd, weird, interesting and well put together material it's impossible to list it all, don't take my word for it, go and have a look!

Knock! #3 may be obtained by supporting the Kickstarter
