I had a few of the Lone Wolf gamebooks back in the day but I hadn't played them all like the Fighting Fantasy ones. I met Joe Dever a few years back at a Dragonmeet. I was a fan of Gary Chalk's illustrations and was happy to meet and chat with him at the 2022 Dragonmeet, Thus I was greatly enthused when Rene Batsford asked me to do some illustrations for Holmgard Press's Lone Wolf Playmats - which are a play aid for the new delux editions of the series (I have them and they are beautiful - you can get them here.)
The Playmat art includes cards for all the Kai Powers, encounters, weapons and special items - a huge undertaking! I have been producing a mixture of full scenes and backgroundless characters and items which can be placed against a variety of different backgrounds supplied by the other artists.
That's how I was able to pop these scary guys into this family snap, carefully sized and calibrated to match us!!
Kai Power: Mind Shield
A very varied and enjoyable set of commissions which is still ongoing!!
