Not all heroes side with good
Adrian Shaw illustrates works of fantasy. Dragoon initially started as an online gallery showcasing Adrian’s artistic works, which now also features as an illustrated Bestiary of fantasy creatures alphabetically listed with descriptions.
Born in Rabaul, Papua New Guinea is where Adrian lived most of his childhood, after which he and his family moved to Australia. Adrian has been fascinated with the fantasy genre since childhood, inspired by some of the great artists and art books he had collected.
Listed below is what Adrian believes sparked his imagination as a kid to draw and eventually create Dragoon.com.au to what it is today to share. Enjoy!
