#RPGaDAY2015 - Day Twelve: Favourite RPG Illustration

Day Twelve of #RPGaDAY2015 is a great opportunity to fill the social medias with really cool art from your favourite games.

In today's video, I managed to recruit the Creative Director of Cubicle 7, Jon Hodgson, to help out and show off some of his favourite artwork that has inspired and influenced him.

When it comes to my fave, I'd have to go with the cover that leapt out from the shelves when I was perusing the game shelves back in the early 80s, picking the first RPG I'd buy and GM...

Look at it...

It's glorious!

On the front cover of TSR's sci-fi game, Star Frontiers, it was THE selling point for me. Just every part of it was cool. It was everything I wanted in gaming as a teen who had just seen Star Wars and wanted to explore cool planets armed with blasters.

Oooh yeah!

Having discovered that the artwork is available as a print from Larry Elmore's site, I'm seriously tempted... If I can just convince the wife...
