Visual Artists of the OSR

This is another of my collection/discovery posts which always end up breeding massive degrees of resentment.

As always, if anyone wants to be taken off or have their entry changed then let me know.






Matthew Adams

Aaron Aelfrey (Aaron has also done a range of stuff for LotFP.) (This is a site where Aaron catalogues largely historical artists whose work has passed into public domain. It's very good.)

Ian Baggley

"the artist of 1st edition AS&SH"

Johnathan Bingham

John Blaszczyk

Gennifer Bone

Her art featured in Lusus Naturae.

Yannick Bouchard

He's also done extensive work for LotFP, his art is all of their aesthetic.

See, this guy had all his links in one god. damn. PLACE. See how useful that is?

Sam Bosma

"Probably doesn't identify with OSR but the style and content are there."

Moreven Brushwood

Recommended by Beloch Shrike; "probably doesn't consider herself an "OSR Artist," but she plays in OSR games, prefers OSR games over other types of games, and makes art for my OSR books. So I figure she qualifies."

"I juuuust started contributing to OSR books and zines (Blueholme Journeymanne, Fighting Fantazine, Alarums & Excursions), but am looking for more projects to work on! or email graxbw at gmail dotcom. thanks!"

Jeff Call

Featured in Mortzengersturm, the Mad Manticore of Prismatic Peak

  1. Thank you for this !
    It's very to find such good artists in a same page but.... you make a little mistake writting my name :
    I'm Guillaume Jentey (you forget the last "e" and wrote Jenty...)

    1. Ok, fixed, with apologies.

    2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  4. Actually, a better link for my OSRish work is My deviantart page is very much under updated. :)

  5. Sam Mameli is on G+ here:

  6. You missed Peter Mullen, who does a lot of great art for DCC.

    1. Gimmie a sec with that one, I'm going to have to make a new sub-list of people with links and images and then add them systematically.

  7. Tooting my own horn...

  8. Wow, thanks for this list. My RSS explode.

  9. Patrick, appreciate the shout-out. I'm almost a pure cartographer, but not quite:

    1. I have added you Micheal but I have put in a more vertical image than the ones you linked to as those wide horizontal images don't show up to best effect in the blogger format. I hope that's ok.

  10. This comment has been removed by the author.

  11. I don't know if I qualify to be listed with these luminaries of the community, but I've got art work in 17 OSRish books and zines, 11 of which can be found on RPGNow.

    Sorta portfolio here:

  12. I would like to direct your attention to Tomasso Galmacci:

    He has done some 5e work but his style suits older works.

  13. Shameless self-pimping

  15. You're super cool for doing this Patrick.
    I uh, guess I should squeak up.
    Just make stuff for my own weird thing... everyone here is so good...

  16. I juuuust started contributing to OSR books and zines (Blueholme Journeymanne, Fighting Fantazine, Alarums & Excursions), but am looking for more projects to work on! or email graxbw at gmail dotcom. thanks!

  17. I did all the monster art for Barbarians of Lemuria: Mythic Edition as well as some stuff for Dungeon Crawl Zine...

  18. I'm flattered to be part of your collection, thank you!

    You can put my surname Puerta if you want to, it has been made public several times and I think that eventually I'll add it to my blogs.

    About my recent involvement with OSR projects, I'm one of the illustrators of a thematic bestiary set in a world of floating islands called "Criaturas del Vacío Celeste" "Creatures of the Celestial Void"

    You can see more here, but it is only in Spanish.,5167_funddescription.png
