Despite being repeatedly told that all artists drink too much absinthe, cut their own ears off and only make money after they’re dead, I have always wanted to be one. Strangely, I haven’t grown out of it.

If you're interested in commissioning me or purchasing rights to use artwork please email me via: tom990@gmail.com
I don't bite, but I will ask for real money.

The pirate airship Dryad by SpikedMcGrath
The pirate airship Dryad

This photograph of the pirate ship "Dryad" was taken by a travelling photographer in the Northern reaches of the ravine province- confirming reports that pirates have been operating in the area. Dryad- Formerly HMAS Swallow- was captured by pirates last Autumn while returning from a routine reconnaissance mission. Our sources in the intelligence service claim there's rumours that the recent piracy "epidemic" in the Northern provinces are sponsored by foreign nation states.

Military forces have been deployed to the North including anti-airship missile batteries on-route from Edwinton. It is believed to be only a matter of time before Dryad is either sunk or back in Union hands.

People keep telling me these things would never fly, which is obviously ridiculous. So if you're wondering how you do fly one of these- I did a write-up on my blog explaining exactly how it would work.  I think these things are important. You can read it here: www.spikedmcgrath.com/2015/08/…

48 Interceptor by SpikedMcGrath
48 Interceptor
Series 48: Interceptor- Light assault spaceship for close extraplanetary defence.

-------------------------------------
A concept design for a spaceship. I love drawing these but sometimes it's hard to justify to myself why its so "planey" besides the fact that it just feels right. There's no air resistance in space of course. I blame pop culture. Maybe I'll do something more original later...

Last year I had the pleasure of working on a project that is right up my alley- in that it involves airships, space and first world war battleships all mashed up into one absurd and imaginative universe. What's not to like?
That project is Clockwork Armada- which is now launching  over on kickstarter

dieselpunk airships in space

"Clockwork Armada is a tabletop miniatures game of space battles set in a fantastical alternate reality.  In this universe, planets are flat, and the laws of physics function on very different principles.  The upward rushing hurricane that makes up outer space is known as the deep sky, and strange alien life hides in the mists.  The battles that you take part in will act out the stories of the kingdoms and cultures that sail their clockwork ships between these worlds."

If you're a fan of steampunk, deiselpunk, Battle fleet Gothic or know someone who might be then you can check it out here: www.kickstarter.com/projects/1…
