Not Another Monster Quest: Kobolds, Goblins, and Bugbears

Created by a wonderful team of writers, artists, and cartographers the Not Another Monster Quest series works hard to destroy the trope that all monsters are evil or lesser. Filled with adventures and NPCs, each volume will introduce you to creative storytelling mechanics to use in your D&D game!

Here's a preview for upcoming Not Another Monster Quest volumes that include my work!


Mists of Fodlan: Fire Emblem Zine Inspired by Authurian Legends
A fan-zine project that combined Fire Emblem: Three Houses with Arthurian tales and legends. I was tasked with working with an author to create six images inspired by illuminated manuscripts. The fan with a keen eye will notice plenty of references hidden in each frame!

Journey Planet: January 2021
The Hugo Award winning zine invited me to craft a piece for their issue on Arthurian traditions and legends.

I crafted this line piece of Merlin studying. This work is also available as a coloring page!
