In preparation for our being on Wizards of the Coast's Twitch Channel broadcast show "Dragon Talk", I've been scrambling to get some artwork and video intro/outro files created by a variety of talented artists.
New artwork for RPG Research, RPG Trailer, and other projects by Hawke Robinson

Combined both RPG Research logos

This page will be updated periodically between Decmber 12th through January 22nd, as the artwork revisions roll in.

If you aren't familiar with me, my name is Hawke Robinson, and I am founder of the non-profit research and community organization RPG Research, creator of the for-profit professional services and training organization RPG Therapeutics LLC and the, and much more.

in the past year I have fortunately been joined by a growing team of wonderful volunteers and staff helping take all these projects to the next level.

I have spent the past 13+ years focused on research, program planning, program implementation, etc.

I share the "walls of text" of information about all this. My websites have a lot of "meat", and not much "fluff".

However, this has become overwhelming for a lot of people, so I have had to break down and start adding some fluffy, pretty imagery to try to make at least the front pages of the sites more appealing to the general public.

All of this artwork I have commissioned out of my own pocket, at no expense to RPG Research.

First with logos. A number were created on, as recommended by Ivan Van Norman.

See my periodically updated article on the experiences with legitimate and scam artists on Fiverr here: " Caveat Emptor"

We have two nice logos, but I can't decide which one to go with. Even after a public poll, the general public was split 50/50 too. So, for now, I'm using both logos, depnending on the audience, until there is a clear winner over time.

For more conservative settings, such as scientific conferences and the like, I'm going with this logo for now:

Tame RPG Research Logo 

For the more layperson gamer community, I'm using this logo for now:

Bold RPG Research logo 200h 



Here is an explanation of what each item on this "coat of arms" of sorts, represents:

Bold RPG Research Logo with notations

And here is a combination of the two together, just for the heck of it:

And for the videos intro/outro and on our Channel, this clips for more conservative audiences this clip:



While for gaming communities this clip:




Here are some attempts at a logo and mascott image for the Wheelchair Friendly RPG Trailer:

RPG Trailer logo



Also, for the Wheelchair Friendly RPG Trailer, I have commissioned many artists to come up with their versions, in various styles, of a specific scene I described for them, of 5 RPGers around  a table, and their imaginary characters over their heads.

I will update this page as they become available. These are now copyrighted by me as the commissioner and purchaser of the rights of the works created by commission, so please do not use these without permission or attribution.
