About Squamous Studios

Squamous Studios is a small design, art, and writing studio lurking in the shadows of the gaming world. It’s the small “company” for your host, Badger. I’ve been working as a layout monkey and book designer for the RPG industry since 2003, first starting out with Chaosium, and then branching out to other companies, mostly those that specialize in material for Call of Cthulhu. During its existence, i was Lead Book Designer for Miskatonic River Press, handling all book design and layout duties for MRP until it went on indefinite hiatus. In the mean time, i’ve done work for other companies such as Montag Press, Pagan Publishing, Stygian Fox, and Golden Goblin Press.

In 2015, i released my first card game, Feed the Shoggoth!, a rather evil little card game, based on the writings of HP Lovecraft (with some definite references to the Call of Cthulhu RPG thrown in for good measure). You can find more about the game here.

I figured it was high time that i try to establish some sort of itty bitty web presence, and this website is the result of that…although, as you can see, this site is still in it’s proto-shoggoth stages.

A portfolio of my published works is now up! Just click on the Portfolio link to view them. I’ll create a gallery with sample pages soon.

If you wish to contact me about doing graphic design or layout work, please email me at badger@squamousstudios.com.

I still like pie.
