Does anyone know who drew that Monkey Island Forum picture and if the artist has drawn any other Monkey Island stuff? It's a pretty neat style.

I agree. I see it every time I browse the forums, but never thought to comment on the wonderful impact it makes on the site.
It's a beautiful piece of art, and I particularly like the way the cartouche-like banner is incorporated into the navigation menu.

The picture even has the young male pirate chatting up the buxom lass at the back of the Scumm Bar (TM) that you can spot in The Secret of Monkey Island. Nice attention to detail.

The artist is Jayel (Dan Lee), and there's a large gallery of his work on the Scumm Bar.

Thank you very much for the information. That is very interesting, because, in an amazing coincidence, I have actually seen and enjoyed his work before.

I remember when we first saw that pic at the top (when the forum merged) and knew straight away it was a Dan Lee, he has such a unique style. I think I've spoken to him once or twice. He's quite friendly.

Yeah, that was him.
