Shards: Tales from the Ruin Nation

It's almost the anniversary of the debut of the exciting graphic novel Shards: Tales from the Ruin Nation by Alex Steacy! Cover art is by well known illustrator Ken Steacy and other illustrators include Alex Steacy, Victoria Garbutt, Becca Taunton-Renwick, Jessica Peters, Kate O' Keefe and Colin Campbell. It also includes a piece of my own art which was inspired by Alex's writing. Book foreword done by Sam Logan of Sam and Fuzzy. The book is available in paperback or high resolution PDF through Exim Works Media & Gear at

 I've always admired Alex's writing and drawings especially his concept sketches of rad looking weapons/vehicles, fantastical robot characters and his whimsical comedic comic about Cacti which he also published a number of years ago.

Some of Alex's automa & weapon concepts within.

This is the full colour version of the included digital artwork I did of two of the characters from the Ruin Nation world, Jaci and Sara.
