'Hiker' Joe

Bio

I’m an artist, illustrator and graphic designer with a passion for the mythical and the fantastic.

I’m currently developing an original graphic novel centred on characters I created for Dungeons & Dragons that I’ve since transplanted into a mythic world of my own design. As a lifelong fan of Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) and similar fantasy games, I’ve also created my own line of tabletop role-playing game (RPG) miniatures, custom dice bags and t-shirts bearing my own fantasy logo designs, and other gaming accessories — available at my Etsy Shop.

Among other extracurricular activities, I run a Dungeons & Dragons homebrew campaign; I make the annual cosplay pilgrimage to Anime North; and I venture solo into the Algonquin Park interior once or twice a year. I live, work and play in Richmond Hill, Ontario.
