April A to Z – N is for Nicholson, Russ

Russ Nicholson is an excellent illustrator who has directed his talents to many things, including many prolific gamebooks.  I interviewed him last year  and he was kind enough to return again, so let’s see what he’s been up to.

  • Who you are and how you got into illustrating gamebooks?
Russ Nicholson. Got started with FF Gamesbooks, The Fiend Folio and have contributed art for many books, games & publications since. 
  • What you have done since April 2012?

  • What you plan on doing now related to gamebooks/solos/RPGs/art?
 Couple of big projects lined up as well as private commissions.
  • What you think the future of gamebooks/solos/RPGs/art  is?
I’m no clairvoyant, but considering the internet and rise of apps, etc. believe it is reasonably healthy for a good while yet.
