Christopher Appel
United States
My name is Christopher Appel. A long-time illustrator and game developer, you may know me from my work for Weird Wars, Deadlands, Legends of the Five Rings, Anachronism and other games. Or perhaps you remember some of the computer games I worked on in the 1990s, like the Wizardry series, or the expansions to Unreal.

More recently, I've devoted my time to historical subjects, illustrating books for the European market. When not producing artwork, I like to travel with my family, watch old movies, and read non-fiction.

I hope you enjoy the work!
Just a quick entry to let everyone know I will be at Dragon*Con this Labor Day weekend.  I'll have a table in the art show, so stop by and say hello.

Excellent Work!

I'm glad Brother Bob told us about you!

Welcome to DA, Chris. My name is Robert Ashcraft. Bob Giadrosich and I also share some history. DA has many great aspects... a few not so great. Enjoy discovering them all.

Your work is quite good. I particularly like your fantasy work. It seems the more you are allowed by a client to explore emotion and personality, the better your work is. Several pieces really caught my eye as simply great illustrations. For instance; "Warcraft - Gellrin", and "The Invocation" were especially eye catching for me.

Once again, welcome.

Nice to read your comments, Robert. I think I met you (and Bob) a long time ago at a Chattacon panel. No reason you'd remember me, but Bob grabbed the sketchbook I was carrying and that started a conversation on art that has lasted about three decades.

I'm tied up on a deadline at the moment, but I did breeze through your gallery. You seem to have landed a lot of entertaining commercial art gigs. Nicely done--I'll have to take a closer look next week when I'm not racing the clock.

And I need to send Bob a thank you for sending so many folks my way.
