Xbox 360 indy game...

Ian Hamblin (ikham.co.uk) & Phil Lutas  have released their first game for Xbox360 - Avatars Euro Penalty Shootout, if you look at the banners behind the nets, they're the ones I created for Appy Times Software. They very  kindly included them to add a touch of colour to the background.

Please check out the game and make sure you rate it to support a fellow indy developer! :)


In Ian's game my Batman avatar helps England to victory! Fantasy football!

Thom Clancy

Had the pleasure of doing a little design job for Thom Clancy today, high profile gaming consultant and son of world famous author Tom Clancy.

His words on completion...

"We called Ric in for a spur of the moment job, and he surpassed all our expectations. He had samples back to us within an hour and a completed project by end of day. I, personally, can't thank him enough, and am proud to have him on board as a valued resource." - Thom Clancy

Shall be keeping this at the top of my page for a while! Thanks Thom! :D

Saucy Seaside Postcard - Zombie Piranha

Painted a spoof saucy seaside postcard featuring the Zombie Piranha character. I have 10 cards roughed out so I will paint them all if I have time. I wanted to create the feel of a 70s Carry On style naughty postcard so some are going to be a bit cheeky! (Pun intended)
