About

 

At the time of writing Jon Hodgson is 40 years old and lives in Scotland, UK though he happens to have been born south of the border in England.


His career has spanned art direction, set building, props making, graphic design, story boarding, historical illustration, card game art, board game art, computer games cut scene art, educational illustration, video editing, and roleplaying game art.


As well as working freelance as an illustrator, Jon is currently art director and deputy CEO at Cubicle 7 Entertainment Ltd.  Jon is responsible for the look of all Cubicle 7 products including The One Ring rpg, Doctor Who Card Game, Hobbit Tales Card Game, Victoriana, Rocket Age, World War Cthulhu and more.

In 2013 Jon helped organise and run Cubicle 7’s highly successful Kickstarter for The Cthulhu Britannica London Boxed Set,

which raised over £90,000 ($150 000).


Jon trained as a "fine artist", specialising in abstract painting, and had several gallery shows in the 1990s before running away to join the fantasy art circus.


Jon works with many international clients over the internet. In short - distance is no object. Enquiries about rates and schedule are always welcome.  Click here to email Jon, or head up to the contact page in the menu bar above.

A note on rates: Jon does not use a rate card.  Each project and each client are different, with different needs, different circulation, different turnaround, different fields, different rights required.  This means it is impossible to give any kind of meaningful “standard” rate.  Each job is priced individually.


Jon uses an Apple iMac, Artrage, Adobe Photoshop CC, and a Wacom Intuos 3. As well as pencils and paper, and very occasionally actual real paint.
