I’ve been lucky enough to have been “immortalized” in ink, not once, but three times, by 3 top-drawer artists.
Firstly, I’d like to introduce the work of Chris Weston of 2000AD comic-book fame, and much more.

Chris photographed the band, watched live performances and took interviews to assist the development of his character illustrations, in addition to the conception of an ‘Apocalypse London’ as a background setting.
Chris created all the Artwork for the debut LP, by Tokyo Dragons – entitled ‘Give Me The Fear’. Happily, this relationship lead onward to further Single and EP releases being furnished by his accomplished skills.
Please visit Chris’s website for further TD’s cover art http://chrisweston.co.uk/
The second Tokyo Dragons LP ‘Hot Nuts’ featured the spectacular illustrations by Vince Ruarus, better known as VeniVidiVince. The relationship of band/artist was galvanized following an Italian tour with friends Winnebago Deal. Vince designed a poster featuring both bands to promote the tour. It’s available for viewing on Vince’s website : http://www.venividivince.com/
Most recently, I’m featured on the latest LP by Joe Elliott’s Down ‘N’ Outz – ‘The Further Adventures Of…’. The Superhero-type characters and illustrations are by the gifted hand o Rich Smith. Conceived by Joe, the ideas came to fruition once Rich (also a son of Sheffield) was harnessed into the project. See lots more at http://www.richsmithillustration.com/
