Hi everyone,
I'm an Irish illustrator and graphic designer, currently living in Australia. I've got over fifteen years' professional experience and have worked in and for a tonne of different industries. Some examples include: fine art, video production, 3D animation, exhibition design, print design, museum design, web design.

I've recently turned my attention towards board game art, and have been involved in a few projects already. Some of the smaller ones you can see here, but I'm still waiting until others are officially revealed before displaying the work I've done.

I can offer a complete service, including art, graphic design, logo design, advertising, packaging, 3D visuals etc. as well as being very comfortable dealing with printers and preparing press-ready files.

I've included a few examples of previous work, but if you have a particular project or style in mind please let me know and we can work out a style that fits.

GM me if you're interested in having a discussion about your project.

Cheers,
Ian

Any idea if you could do a playmat for me? I always wanted something unique and I am curious just how much would it be.

Your work is amazing! I have to say your body of work is very impressive. It covers a wide range of genres and subjects but it is all consistently well-done. I'm not a game designer or publisher and I can't hire you, but I am absolutely certain your work would do wonderfully on any game that features it.

Some more samples, including recently completed work for Fool's Gold, a game by Joshua Balvin that will be surfacing on Kickstarter in the near future.

Ian and I have had some discussions about his potential involvement in my card based game. Not sure yet what will happen, but I can certainly say he has great commercial experience which would be an asset to your project, is versatile in his styles as you can see above, and is very forthcoming with sage advice about art direction and technical processes in a game dev context.
