Hello, I'm Josh , though I am called Badger a lot, and some scandinavians call me Penny. I'm a professional concept artist from oxfordshire, I currently live and work in central London.
Hello all,

Quick journal entry, I thought I'd make more of an introduction.

So I live just North of London, I work as a concept artist, mostly for games. (I've done work for Dr Who, Square-Enix, EA, Sumo Digital, Tiger Aspect, films and many more, most of that is under NDA, but I'll post up stuff as it appears.)

Before that I was studying Illustration in Bristol in the West Country. After graduating I travelled around the world a little while doing some strange and wonderful jobs at places like helicopter warehouses, men who hammer cat-scan drums, driving round in a van full of matresses and hoovering television studios. I thought this was far too silly and got a job in film in Covent garden.

Before even that I was still an art student in Oxfordshire, where I grew up and retain my rambling incoherent accent.

I'm in many corners of the net, including:  

My Website
Tumblr :
Blogger :
CGhub :

Feel free to ask me anything! Someone once asked me about portfolios and I put my thoughts here:…

Are you the one who made all the art for the ancients in Rival Kingdoms?

Hey, nope I didn't make them all, they were made by lots of different people, hence the huge variety in style, I made several, and direction on many of the others. But we out sourced them a lot as they don't require as much technical work as troops and buildings.

They are some of the best looking game art I've seen. :)

BTW, one of the new ancients, Ximenia, has a hairstyle and purple stripe that looks similar to a certain pony princess'. Is it possibly an easter egg for the fans?

Thank you!

I'm pretty sure the direction doesn't come from their I'm afraid! That one was painted by luke kendall -…
