"Waterzooi" 65 x 96 cm, ink on paper. The result of a drawing session between Gwen Stok, Pepijn van den Nieuwendijk a.k.a. Cirque de Pepin and me. The concept was Noach's ark after the flood with unruly animals in the 16th century mannerist style. The title literally means "watery mess" but also refers to the self-depreciating name of a Belgian soup dish (which is actually quite good) for which no English translation exists.

Dungeon Degenerates - Hand of Doom is the biggest project Goblinko has created to date & it arrived in Portland on Halloween, 2017. We've spent the last two weeks getting a thousand kickstarter backed copies out to our backers & now we're gearing up for our big Christmas Sale. What started out as a combat card game that we asked our friend Eric Radey to write rules for has grown into a monstrous board game with an enormous world to explore - full of intrigue, weirdness, terror & lowlife elements. We put our full 100% into this game & it really shows.
I did an absurd amount of art for this game. Every card has unique art - every monster & every loot is a new piece of art. The Rules & The Missions books are heavily illustrated as well. Game Designer Eric Radey went the extra mile as well - the rules are smooth & effective & the thing drips with background information. It is an intense, immersive & new fantasy world that is both familiar & surprising at the same time.
