WELCOME TO MY PORTFOLIO

Hi, my name is Shaun Watson and I have told stories since I could speak.  I have drawn more often than anything, and I like doing it.  My new career path does not afford me the opportunity to draw as much as I’d like to, so I’m putting all of my old works up here on WordPress.  Currently, I have posted the following works:

  • CORDOBA CHRONICLES I: BOOK 1 – 7
  • THE TALE OF AILD SKY (24-Hour Comic Book Day)
  • Various logo, layout, packaging and stationery designs

If you’d like to read CORDOBA CHRONICLES IV: THE NECROMANCER’S FURY or movie reviews,  get on over to my Blogger page:

If you have an interest in my works, please let me know.  Thank you and enjoy my work!

While, you’re at it, here’s my resume/CV (containing my relevant design and art-related occupations):
