I’ve been drawing a lot on my iPad Pro lately, so I thought it would be a nice change to go back to paper for a bit. Here’s the map I came up with, and I think it turned out well. The top version has a digitally added background (an old paper texture), but the bottom version is a pure vanilla scan from my paper journal.
The Island Seis
The Island Seis is not your typical tourist destination. Rowdy pirates? Check. Dour swamp? Thirsty mosquitoes? Malicious voodoo witches? Check. Check. Check. But then, these nasty factors work in favour of those who hang out here. It’s an unwelcoming pirate haven, slightly, but not too far off from, some very lucrative trade routes. And that suits the inhabitants just fine.
Seis has two ports: Crapola and Port Fyshbite. Both towns are located within a protective lagoon, Crapola to the southwest and Port Fyshbite to the northeast.
Crapola has about 500 permanent residents, and about twice Continue reading
Inspired by some of Matt Jacksons recent stuff. Who in turn was inspired by Luka Rejec. I really like this tiny, yet expressive style!
Lo, my first ever submission to the One Page Dungeon contest! No disclaimers about lack of time or artistic practice, just the adventure for ya. Please let me know what you think!

Though I gotta say, a quick look at one of my fellow competitors makes me realise I’m not a pro yet. Check out Werkes submission for some eye-searing goodness. That’s a nice piece of design right there.
I just submitted a map to the One Page Dungeon contest. I’ve been a lurker there for several years, but thought it was about time I threw in a contribution. Will post my submitted map here shortly, hang on!
Sixton and surrounding area
The red marks are demon lord statue locations.
The marsh to the west is very unsafe, full of Skavens worshipping Slaners.
The lake to the east is not safe. There are squid-skulls mutated by the presence of Cthulhu, lurking about.
The railroad tunnel project south-east of town accidentally broke through a wall to an old Nurgle temple. It was quickly sealed off and the tunnel is mostly safe again, if you disregard those workers slowly turning yellow and undead.
South-west of town, up in the mountains, some berserker dwarves are excavating out a old statue of Khorne. All who approach the place also go berserk.
Sixton is a murky town in a dark world. But we were in need of a map for our weekly Shadow of the Demon Lord campaign, so I drew one. I used my new and shiny iPad Pro + Pencil for this project, so if you want the map without the red marks, it’s easy to fix. Let me know and I’ll whip up a new version.
Lately, I’ve been learning to use my new iPad Pro + Pencil + Procreate (drawing app). This has resulted in a few character sketches from our ongoing Shadow of the Demon Lord campaign.
The character below is named Kjutta. He’s an astronomer and student of the occult. Also, he likes to set things alight. And, he doesn’t usually prance about naked. The missing garbs is just a testament to my tendency of beginning a drawing with the bare anatomy, and often the sketch doesn’t make it as far as clothes.
Here’s to hoping you’re equally tolerant of fantasy tropes and genitalia :)
This time with to new books: Occult Adventures and Pathfinder Unchained! Also, the latest errata and a swarm of bug fixes. RPG Books v5.1 is, Jobs’ ghost willing, available from the app store in a day or two!
