Game Designer, Comic Book Creator, Illustrator
Heya! I’m Darryl T. Jones, a lifelong artist and gamer. I’ve been an artist my whole life. My grandmother once told me that she’s known since I was four that I would become an artist.
I have a degree in Sequential Art from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Sequential art is basically comic books. There is a heavy emphasis on Illustration and Graphic design, particularly for the purpose of story-telling. After college, I independently published a comic book, The Dobbers. It was a light-hearted tale of gnome-like, forest creatures who stumble upon a quest involving a great deal of treasure and a magical sword.
After many years, happily working as a designer and illustrator, I found myself wistfully looking back at my comic. I wanted to draw and create in that cute and clever world again. I wanted to tell the story of the Dobbers to more than just my friends and family.
In addition to comics, I grew up with a passion for games, particularly board games and role-playing games, which never died. My wife is a gamer and my kids are gamers. It only seems natural that the Dobbers should come to life as a board game!
In addition to the board game, you can find the Dobbers in a campaign setting and the soon-to-be relaunched comic book. You can find more of my work in other nerdy worlds such as, True Dungeon, Dwarven Forge, Nerd Fitness, Green Couch Games and Bellwether Games.
