Alligator Writer

that's right, he's busy writing his memoirs... alligator memoirs.

"... and then I stuffed the guy under a rock to save him for later."

oh man... alligators are evil... yet I'm so fascinated with them!

This one is traditional with a bit of digital wonderment... okay, a lot of digital wonderment. But it's wonderment so that's okay.

anyway... I hope you enjoy. And if you call me and the secretary starts hissing at you, you'll know why.

On a side note, I get a lot of visitors on this site that come here by googling "crocodile man" weird.

Thunder… thunder… thunder... THUNDERCATS HO!

I had a crazy idea that wouldn't leave my mind. So… here it is.

What an awesome show that would have been! Japanese Thundercats?! Samurai Lion-O?!

I will always love the original Thundercats. Lion-O's man-mane was something else. He put Fabio to shame. Honestly I haven't seen the new series yet… but I'm not itching for it or anything.

Hope you enjoy cause it was fun for me.

Oh, and go check out the tentacle blog.

It's Banjo-Pig Time!

I could resist it no longer!
I Banjo-Pigged... and Banjo-Pigged in a classical way.

This was my piece for the delightful Dueling Banjo Pigs blog
It was fun... In an Aristocratic Redneck way.

You can go over thar and see this very piece in all it's exact same glory!
But you can also go see a slop full of other Banjo Pigs by some great illustrators and Artists.
Check it our before you Wreck it out. (I think that works)

Once again, This is Cam Kendell... Freelance Illustrator, Artist, Designer, writing on a blog. If you are interested in getting a quote for illustration work shoot me an email.

Oh, and stay tuned for more outrageousness.

Caught In the Headlights

Yes my deer... this is another piece. Puns are so punny. I'm continuing to try new things and techniques. I call this Sambar En Repose. He looks so distinguished and fancy I feel underdressed while typing this. Plus he almost looks mad... like maybe we've disturbed him in his study.

sorry, we'll let you get back to whatever you were doing.

This one involved, traditional, digital, and photographic trickery.

Let me know what you think of it.

the art of Dungeon Dice


Right now on Kickstarter you can pledge to get a copy of what I think will be a really fun game.
The game was created by Sam Coates of Potluck Games and his has a load of dice. Who doesn't love rolling dice!
Anyway, I did the illustration work for the Kickstarter campaign so I thought I'd post the illustrations here. starting with my favorite one....

The Goblin Guard
This one was incredibly fun. Who wouldn't kill at the chance to get paid to draw a goblin sticking a key up his nose?! 'Twas a blast. Next...

The Rogue
Watch out! she's got a whip! Or is that just to distract you from the fact that she has a crazy squiggly, stabby dagger?

The Viking
I dare you to tell me who doesn't like vikings... well, may those they pillaged... but they are by far the exception to the rule.

And lastly, here is the main image for the campaign

The funnest part was probably the spider webs in the cave... don't know why... I hope that elf dodges. Stone guy gonna smash you!

And there you go. Definitely a fun project to work on. Go check it out and pledge! You'll get an awesome game when it is funded and maybe I'll get to do more illustrations for it!

Critics Wanted for Goblin on Giant Armadillo

As you can see I ended up going in a completely different direction than I had planned in the last post. I like it better.... HOWEVER, I want to improve my game.
So... load the cannons and light the fuses.
I would love some honest, constructive criticism. Tell me what you like, what you don't like and why, how it tickles you, the reasons it makes you ill, the ways in which it offends your very core... anything you feel like telling me... about the image (no personal jabs please, I'm not that thick skinned)
